  1. This sly Britcom is like a C-SPAN spin-off of... The Office. [12 May 2006, p.75]
  2. A wonderful, brilliantly brutal, scathing look at British politics.
  3. Think of "The Office," "Larry Sanders," "Spin City" and "Yes Minister" rolled into one delirious stew.

    This is, in my estimation, the funniest show of all time. And one need not be from the UK to appreciate the political in-humor. General scenarios are applicable to US and CAN also. Although based on real people, it's general enough to be hilarious to just about anyone. Highest possible recommendation. Expand

    The brilliance of Malcom Tucker's swearing rants are juxtaposed beautifully with the obnoxiousness of his team. I can't think of a comedy show that has me quoting it to the extent of The Thick Of It. Expand

    A few laugh out loud moments through out along with a solid plot definitely make it worth checking out. The characters are likable as well, Peter Capaldi being the star as the foul mouthed Malcolm Tucker. This season consists of just three 30 minute episodes so why not take a chance on it. Expand

    The constant extremely shaky camera is making me sick. I get dizzy after only a couple minutes.
    Besides making me physically sick, the show
    doesn't make me laugh either. Maybe I am not into English comedy. Expand
