During a Q&A session at the German re:publica digital conference, IT Crowd creator and writer Graham Linehan announced that he is bringing the award-winning geeky British sitcom and cast members (Chris O’Dowd, Richard Ayoade, Katherine Parkinson and Matt Berry) back to Channel 4 for one last special forty-minute episode. According to Bleeding Cool, this final episode is to be filmed in three weeks time. The script for the special was written over a year ago, but due to a pregnancy and the actors being busy in other TV and film projects, it was postposed. Haven’t seen IT Crowd or need to catch up? All four seasons are available to watch via Netflix, Hulu and Channel 4.

This show will live and die based on the character of Avon, and there’s one actor who’s uniquely qualified to play him.
Avon, of course, is the sarcastic computer expert who is both an indispensible part of Blake’s crew and a huge liability to Blake — likely to betray the rebel leader at any time. In the original BBC version, writers Terry Nation and (more likely) Chris Boucher gave Avon the lion’s share of the insanely quotable dialogue, with a sharp barb for absolutely every occasion. And yet, Avon also shows immense vulnerability, and develops one of the all-time great conflicted love stories with Blake, the man he says he wants to be free of.

You can read the press release over on io9. But I just want to point out that it looks like the new version, beyond giving Blake a dead wife to avenge, is going to be using an apostrophe in the title. Blasphemy!

I’m 42 years old and have been dealing with A/V equipment since the early 80s but I have never seen this connector before on my life. It’s on the back of the Commission’s VCR: the blue one labeled “TV (OUT)”. Can anyone fill me in?
I was watching episode 2 of J.J. Abrams’ Alcatraz last night and I noticed a QR code:
I was unable to get a good enough freeze frame to scan it but according to the one location online that mentioned this, someone claimed it resolved to “F82F3”. After some searching I was able to determine that it’s an invalid unicode character…
Anyone have any ideas?
