The Thick of It - Series 4

Customer Reviews

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The Thick of It is a modern day classic of British TV and is great if you're a fan of either politics or comedy, although if you have a good understanding of British politics, you're bound to understand more of the references.

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!).

Oh, how great it was to see some of my favorite characters again! Ben Swain, Malcolm Tucker, Glenn Cullen and Terri Coverly are my particular favourites but to me the absolute perfect character is Peter Mannion. Roger Allam plays him brilliantly, a tired politician who has stopped trying and hates his career. To me, he is most lifelike, a bitter, sarcastic but still principled man who hates the way his party is going. Every line he gave had me laughing. "He was homeless only in the sense that he had no home" had me laughing for half an hour. His squabbles with Stewart Pierson are hilarious.

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.

There's so much going on in this show that you can re-visit it time and time again and pick up something new. I suppose the novelties in this series are the way the focus switches between both the government and opposition ministers (this was rarer before), and the depiction of the coalition. As I think someone else here mentioned, the comedy takes a while to reach its peak, but when it does you'll be roaring with laughter—Adam Kenyon's comment to Glenn and Will about the zombie apocalypse works so well I nearly died!
Buy it. Even if you already own it. This is comedy so good it's worth owning twice.

The best in its class; and VEEP, the US version (sort of) is almost as good. But Season 4 is very different from the previous, so be prepared, particularly the enquiry episode.

Like all the best TV series, this finishes when it's ahead. We're not going to get Series 15 or whatever. All us fans of Armando's superb work WANT more but know we don't REALLY want it!

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.

Final series, which for me, was not as great as the earlier ones. The whole thing felt like it was unravelling just a bit, the structure looser and the humour not as crisp. Thete are certainly some great set pieces and themes in here (the "Mr Tick-el" debacle being one of them), but I thought it was running out of steam. Understandable, perhaps, after burning so hot, for so long. Certainly the actors, Capaldi in particular, get more chance to show more depth, particularly in the final episode, but overall it's past its incomparable prime in my view. Don't get me wrong, still outstanding and worth seeing, but (judged by its own standards) a good time to say goodbye. Brilliant piece of work, The Thick of It. Brilliant.
