Every year the president of USA invites the journalists that works at the White House Correspondents’ Association to the Correspondents’ Dinner which was held on May 1st, 2010. President Barack Obama makes fun of journalists, politicians and himself.
At the Norwegian Comedy Award in the fall of 2009, the comedian Are Kalvø held a great parody of Barack Obama. Watch the video I found on YouTube. Jump to around 1 minute to see the start of the parody. The first minute is in Norwegian, the parody in it self is in English. Enjoy!
The first couple of American Pie movies was great and fun. And you might thought that the series had ended. But you’re mistaken. A new movie is now out in US. I’ve lost count, but I guess American Pie Presents: The Book of Love is the 7th movie in the series. One character from the original movies are still present, Jim’s Dad played by Eugene Levy. The movie is available on both DVD and Blu-ray.
A short description of the the story:
When three East Great Falls High buddies accidentally discover the legendary “Book of Love,” penned by some of their school’s alumni, they embark on a hilariously outrageous quest to lose their virginity with the girls of their dreams. Join Jim’s Dad (Eugene Levy) and this lovable and outrageous group of guys in this raucous comedy full of shocking and heartwarming fun!

I really liked season 1 and season 2 of The IT Crowd. I’m happy say that season 3 is as good as the previously seasons. We’re still following Moss (Richard Ayoade), Jen (Katherine Parkinson) and Roy (Chris O’Dowd) in their everyday life as IT people. If this crowd can work in IT, everyone can.
Here’s the episode titles of series 3:
Are We Not Men?
Tramps Like Us
My favourite episodes are The Speech where Moss and Roy convince Jen into belive that the Internet is in a small black box. Friendface is also a great episode. It’s a parody on Facebook. Real fun.
Here is the text from the backcover:
Whilst Reynholm Industries boss, Douglas, is spending the pension fund on gold flakes in the water supply, the dysfunctional IT department – Moss, Roy and Jen – build up the courage to face the frightening world of people who somehow communicate without using a keyboard.
As well as the usual bickering, time wasting and incompetence, the co-dependent trio become the victims of sexual harassment, create a fundraising nude erotic calendar, confront the builders from hell and join a social networking site.
In addition to six good episode you also get this:
Audio commentary w/Graham Linehan
An Interview with Graham
Original Title Sequence Animatic
Deleted Scene 1: “Look After Yourself”
Deleted Scene 2: “Roy’s Sex Life”
Cracking the IT Crowd
If you liked the previously seasons of The IT Crowd, you will like this one. If you like British comedy, this is the show for you, start with season 1. The IT Crowd is highly recommanded!
This video is great. I’ve got the link on Twitter from eirikso. It shows the famous clip from the movie Der untergang, but this time when Hitler finds out that Michael Jackson is dead. It have previously been used for showing when Hitler gets banned from Xbox Live, very funny that too.
I loved the first season of The IT Crowd. And the second season is as good. We are still watching Roy and Moss in the IT department with Jen as their boss. They still try to help out on the IT front, but this in season two we also see Roy, Moss and Jen in real life, outside of their jobs. That is real fun, since Roy and Moss haven’t spendt that much time in the real world.
The IT Crowd is a joy ride, and is very much recommanded. You can see season two with out seeing the first, but you miss a lot of fun, you you should get the 1st season too.

Return of the Golden Child

The IT Crowd was shown on Channel 4 sometime last year (I think, I don’t live in UK). I saw some clips on the net, and it look good. I bought the DVD and it’s great.
The show is about two guys, Roy and Moss, in the IT deparment of a big company. They have their office in the basement and spend most of their time there. From time to time they leave the office to help other employes on the other floors. But if they can, they will stay in the basement vere they feel safe.
I will quote what the back of the DVD cover say:
“Roy and Moss toil in the squalid basement of a huge company, fielding IT help desk calls. Roy has a lousy attitude coupled with an eye for the ladies, while Moss is dressed by his mother and has an earosol can of water clipped to his belt with which to spray his ear when it gets hot.
Into their life of ‘users’, pizza, science fiction and firewalls comes middle manager Jen, a spunky can-do career gal who doesn’t know one end of a laptop from the other. Can she introduce real life to men who email the fire brigade in an emergency, who invent a spycho for an internet dating site and display sympathetic PMT symptoms once a month?”
When they get a call, the conversation goes something like this:
-“Hello, IT. Have you tried turning it on and off again?
OK, well, the button on the side, is it gloving?
Yeah, you need to turn it on.”
This is a very british sitcom and a very good one. The characters are a bit stereotypical, but they are spot on. The IT Corwd is very funny and I laugh all the time. I think you will too. If you buy this DVD, and I think you should, it’s well invested money.
The series have six episodes:
The Red Door
The Haunting of Bill Crouse
Aunt Irma Visits
The DVD have some extras: Deleted scenes, Behind The IT Crowd, Hello Friend, Hidden Out-takes and Audio commentaries.
Picture is 16:9 anamorphic, English 2.0 stereo and its PAL region 2 (will work on regionfree DVD players).
A new season will be aired in the UK this autumn 2007.
