Code Monkeys On TV?

Ned wonders why there aren’t any TV shows about software development. The day-to-day lives of most lawyers, doctors, police officers, office workers, etc. aren’t jam-packed with action and hilarity and yet television dramas and comedies are based on them. Our daily grind ought to provide enough fodder for comedy along the same lines as The Office (or The Office). Until that happens, watch The IT Crowd. It’s a geeky comedy about sysadmins playing on Britain’s Channel 4. The episodes are available online but only within the UK. Fortunately they’ve also been posted on youtube.com: Episode 1, Episode 2, Episode 3, Episode 4, Episode 5 and Episode 6. (The IT Crowd link via Boing Boing)

Update: I neglected to mention that I thought Jonathan Coulton’s Code Monkey would be the perfect theme for a software sitcom.
