Friday night saw the return of Graham Lineham’s excellent ‘The IT Crowd‘ for it’s third season. Over the past few seasons I think I may well have enjoyed all the geeky in-jokes, references and props more than the storylines and acting (though I still enjoy that too), and it seems that this year is no exception as the IT department has had a makeover that seems to involve even more stickers than the back of my laptop.
Following on with a grand tradition, I Sky+’d the episode (though forgot to record the HD version) so that I could go back and chronicle the tees Roy wore in S3E1. The first one was really easy, I’d actually already spotted it in the advert. It’s a bit of a classic in the indie tee world, “Musical Elitism Venn Diagram Shirt (Music I Used to Like)” by Diesel Sweeties, who I noticed also have an ‘I [screw] robots’ sticker lurking in the background too.
The second was a bit harder, a black and orange tee where you never really got a decent look at the design. I was about you give up hope when I noticed that there was a shot taken from behind Roy’s head that revealed a J!NX logo on the neck of the tee, which actually made it very easy to find the tee. It’s called “The Cake is a Lie,” which is a statement that left me slightly perplexed, so I Googled it as they suggested, and now I get it. What? You thought I was going to explain it to you?
So, not exactly a huge amount of tee-sleuthing to be done this week, a nice gentle starter I guess, let’s see what comes up next week in episode 2. There’s not too much else in the gallery, just a few shots from different angles, but I figure that since I’ve taken the pictures I might as well upload them.
