If you have never seen the show before, treat yourself and watch it from the beginning. It'll definitely help with knowing more about the characters.
Season four may not be the strongest series overall, as the opening episodes start off a little weaker than what is to come, but it soon picks up the pace and the latter episodes are up there with the best of them
Season 4 is quite a bit different to the previous series, largely because the previous ones have focused on the (fictional) Labour government. But, as The Thick of It always stays topical, we're now treated to the same show `coalition style.' This has attracted some criticism from fans, not liking the new set-up. However, I found it the natural progression of the show and the fact that it still works is a reminder of just how flexible the show really is.
The last couple of episodes are a little different to the rest as they're based on the Leverson enquiry - these ones aren't `laugh out loud funny,' but they're an integral part of the story and foreshadows what is to come
I would say the only downside to the season is that it's the last. Once it's ended it still leaves you with a sad feeling knowing that it's all over now and a thirst for more. I'm sure if the writers wanted to continue it they could, but they've decided to call time on it before it got stale.
Enjoy it for being the greatest political comedy since Yes Minister (and certainly the most sweary!).
But every character and actor get a chance to shine in this season. Malcolm is still a gusher of inventive swearwords, still as evil as Voldemort but this time around he has been slightly defeated. Nicola Murray is still the gaff-prone klutz, Olly is still the self-centered jerk, Terri is still as oblivious as ever and Glenn Cullen is still by far the most sympathetic character in the whole of the Thick of It. Much praise to James Smith for his portrayal. The speech at the end of the last episode was superb and I hope he will at least be nominated for an acting award. The only character you can't loath.
Ianucci has said that this is probably the last series of the Thick of It, I really hope it's not. I want to see these characters again. "Veep" was a fun show but it didn't come close to being as good as the Thick of It.
Buy it. Even if you already own it. This is comedy so good it's worth owning twice.
Series 4 needs to be viewed in sequence as there is a running storyline through all the episodes, and it all climaxes in the hour long special, Episode 6, set entirely in a judicial enquiry, that tool so beloved of politicians these days.
The resonances with real life enquiries recently - humblings, memory lapses, claims not to have been told what was going on - are stupendous and quite scary.
All set within a coalition government with the squabbling and backstabbing and contrary policy announcements, just like "No more wind farms" "Yes, there will be" that we had just last week from the government.
A must have for any fan of TTOI. A few deleted scenes and commentaries as extras.
