THE IT CROWD: THE INTERNET IS COMING REVIEWED
“The Internet is Coming” allows for a funny finale to cap “The IT Crowd”. While the series never did much for me, it seems that having an end goal in mind allowed the cast to bring the funny. By focusing on viral videos, the duality of image and changing fortunes…the show was focused. But, why wait until the end of the show to start doing this?
Hell, the finale might be one of the best episodes in the show’s run. Matt Barry’s also done far better. Is it just me or is the guy becoming a little one-note now? I didn’t notice it during the earlier seasons, but it became a sore point while moving deeper into the series. If you’re a fan, you’ll want to pick this up.

The Plot Thus Far
Having learnt from Douglas that the secret of his success is wearing women's slacks Moss buys a pair, which makes him brave and creative. Roy is annoyed that tiny barista Troy is making his coffee too milky and they argue, after which Troy falls in front of a van. At the same time Jen accidentally throws coffee over a vagrant, both incidents being captured on camera and posted on the Internet, turning Jen and Roy into global hate figures. Roy also accompanies girlfriend Alice to her grandfather's funeral but overdoes the pepper spray to simulate tears of grief, which, added to his Internet notoriety, is enough for her to dump him. Douglas attempts damage limitation by going on TV's 'The Secret Millionaire' but blows his cover so Moss devises a plan to market the pepper spray and turn his colleagues into heroes. However it backfires and the IT crowd have to clear their desks.
