Trivia / The IT Crowd

  • Accent Depundent: In one episode Jen is dating a man who is almost perfect except that his name is Peter File, which in British English sounds almost exactly like "paedophile." Moss even points out that the problem wouldn't exist if they were in America (where the first vowel is a short rather than long "e").
  • Actor Allusion: Oliver Chris once again plays an employee of a large corporation who dabbles in quiz shows.
  • The Cast Showoff: Philip Rham, who played Johann the German cannibal in "Moss and the German", was an actual professional cellist (as one could probably guess from him prominently playing the cello in The Stinger of the episode...).
  • What Could Have Been: An American version was planned and a pilot was shot, but not picked up. The biggest effect would have been Joel McHale passing up Community for it.
