TheITCrowd_S2_large.jpg

In early April of this year, a fairly significant event happened for my family. Geeky as it may sound, my husband, sons, and I were ecstatic to learn that the first season of The IT Crowd was available on DVD in a format that we could use here in the United States. My husband Bruce posted the news to GeekDad, and we all gathered round ye old plasma TV to enjoy the laughs. But it was over all too quickly. Were we doomed to Land of the Lost reruns on Hulu?

Thankfully, we’re now looking forward to the end of this month, when The IT Crowd, The Complete Season 2 comes out on US format DVD on June 30th. Sure, you can watch it online or on the IFC channel, but we’ll be happy to have the whole series on DVD, both for the funny 1337 extras and the subtitles, which my son uses (he wears hearing aids).

Word on the internets is that the 4th season of The IT Crowd will begin in July in the UK, and a Season 3 DVD may hit the States this fall. Bring on the IT Brits!

    Why not just import a region 2 copy from UK.

    We’ve never had luck getting DVDs from overseas to work on our system or vice versa (or at least have the extras like subtitles work), but I know there are people who’ve been successful. Have you had luck with this, or know of anyone who has? We’ll be in the UK this summer and could maybe buy a Season 3 disc while we’re there.

    I’m in the UK so I have no problem playing region 2 discs.

    It is very common in Europe for people to hack their DVD players to play all region DVDs, mainly because we are almost always the last to get films when they are released.

    Do a search online for your DVD model and the words “region free”, usually it is just a case of pressing the right button combination on the remote to unlock it.
