The Secretary of State for Social Affairs is having a meeting with Number Ten's Chief Political Advisor. There have been press rumours that the Minister is to be sacked. The Minister is told that none of these stories have come from Number Ten. However, now they're out there, Number Ten would look weak not to sack him. So he's sacked. His replacement as Minister for Social Affairs takes office.

And so starts The Thick Of It, featuring an ensemble of the best British comic actors, improvising scripts from the sharpest British comedy writers.

 Yes Minister for the 2000s

| | See all Brausch's reviews (187)

Top 100  Reviewer Top 100 DVD Reviewer

The best British sitcom for years. Pusillanimous minister Hugh Abbot lives in fear of psychotic spin doctor Malcolm Tucker whose swearing would make Scarface blush. Peter Capaldi is superb as Tucker. Of course the characters bear no resemblance whatsoever to any real politicians

 The Joy of It

| | See all Backdrifter's reviews (5)

Superb political comedy about "Social Affairs" Secretary Hugh Abbott and his team of advisors, and their daily battle to stay on the right side of the terrifying Malcolm Tucker, the PM's policy enforcer. It's extremely funny while being cut-throat sharp, brilliantly scripted but with the added edge of being part-improvised, and features top-notch performances of completely believable characters. Hugh is at sea and put-upon enough to be funny without being a bumbling caricature (you really feel his tiredness and desperation), while Tucker is one of comedy's great creations - a lot to do with Peter Capaldi's spot-on performance.

Of the various other memorable characters, Tucker's second-in-command Jamie is possibly even more of a psycho, while hilarious "blue-skies advisor" Julius Nicholson is the fussy embodiment of the interfering nit-picking but dangerous irritant.

I'm not exaggerating when I say that The Thick of It is one of the best British comedies ever. And it has the BEST swearing you'll hear.

 Modern Day Yes Minister

Well, I presume thay have tried to revive Yes Minister. But can't beat the classics (Yes Minister and Yes Prime Minister). There was also a hint of direction copied from the series "Office". I presume it might be close representation of Modern British Politics in a very shrude form.

 Brutally funny

This series is so sharp your liable to need a transfusion watching it. Acting is superb with the characters believable (if unlikeable) backstabbers. Great satire on modern media obsessed government and full of killer one-liners.

 Fantastic...

I think this is political satire at its absolute finest. I do prefer Series 3, but this is still a brilliant series
