5.0 out of 5 stars Lightning in a Bottle!, 29 Aug. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
THE THICK OF IT is everything television should be: smart, funny, and completely none-sparing. Having seen IN THE LOOP and finding it one of the clearest, if most brutal, statements on our joint madness in the Middle East (David Hare eat your heart out), I found Armando Iannucci's elder child on the Amazon site. Even though it was unavailable and completely unheard of over here in the US, I bought it sight-unseen. It was as good as, perhaps better than, the film. Peter Capaldi's Malcolm Tucker makes Machiavelli's Prince look like Tinky Winky. The supporting cast is uniformly brilliant; the episodes sustain their potency throughout the three series and two specials. The extras on the DVD collection provide terrific commentary and a wealth of deleted scenes that are better than anything we've got going over here by a wide, wide margin.
