Customer Reviews


This is so funny, I laugh every time. Never gets old. Malcolm Tucker!

Amazing, if shaky

The writing and acting of this show starts strong and only gets better across seasons. My only problem with this initial trilogy of episodes is the DP's decision to go hog wild with the shaky, documentary-style camerawork. It is obnoxious and distracting. Luckily, the creators toned down this aspect in the following seasons, which are all superb. High recommended.

My only complaint is...

that it took me so long to discover this amazingly funny show. The Thick of It is my current favorite British comedy series.
