Beloved British nerd comedy The IT Crowd is at long last coming back for its finale special. Creator Graham Lineham announced at a conference in Germany yesterday that this 40-minute episode — which he’s been talking about for years — will start shooting in a few weeks. According to Bleeding Cool, stars Richard Ayoade, Chris O’Dowd, Katherine Parkinson, and Matt Berry will all be back, and most of the delay can be chalked up to their variously busy schedules. Remember, if you have an emergency, go ahead and call 0-118-999-88-199-9119-725 … 3.
Back then, a geek was someone who kept on tinkering with their gadgets and toys in order to find a higher meaning for them. It didn’t matter if the sun was shining outside, or even if the President came to visit their town. They were set on changing the world through technology, and they did. But it was far from the hip clothing style and constant sex appeal that geeks seem to have today. Today it seems all you have to do is put on some geeky glasses and a bow tie, along with a striped shirt, if that, and you can call yourself geek.
This flying mirrorball was created by the guys at PARTY as one of a series of 10 high-tech toys that move and dance in response to music, in a video to promote the single release World.Words.Lights. for Japanese band androp.
Here is a teaser video showing the toys in production…
However, this version of the Tatooine crossroads of ne’er-do-wells is full of characters from other science fiction series. You’ll see just about every Star Wars character from the original trilogy in the image, as well as some visitors from Star Trek, Doctor Who, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Simpsons, Predator, Batman, The Wizard of Oz, Fallout, and many more besides. It’s a veritable Where’s Waldo Lando of Sci-Fi goodness.
