Add some geek love to the IT Crowd set - VIDEO

The script for the IT Crowd's third season has just been completed, and folks from the show are looking for some help to dress up the set. Calling all geeks with decent knowledge in pop culture! If you've never seen the show before, it's basically the geekiest show about IT guys in the history of British programming. "Did you turn it off and on?" is a recurring joke, so that should say enough.
Those of you that have seen the show know that the main set is always dressed up as a cramped office, cluttered with toys and subtle references to pop culture. This is where we, the people, come in. Even though they rarely ever directly mention the background pieces, it's fun for viewers to catch those subtle shout-outs, be it in the form of a single issue of MAKE Magazine hiding on a messy desktop or a Jim Woodring poster lurking on a crowded wall.
I sent in an e-mail nudging the designers to include some Venture Bros. art or shirts from both the Venture Bros. Shirt Club and Amorphia Apparel, specifically the SCIENCE! line. I then shamelessly plugged a Barbarella print by my own design. Artists have got to hustle, right? Anyway, I'm sure you guys can come up with better things than me.
To get a fair idea of what's going on in that mess of an office, check out this short clip and then send in your suggestions!
