Critic Reviews for The Thick of It Season 3

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

It's possible that The Thick of It's writers have started to overdo Tucker slightly...But perhaps this is a silly criticism, tantamount to saying the show's too funny.

One of the flat-out funniest half-hours of television in the English-speaking world.

From the dazzling the, if not lows, then comparable dips...everything [this season] has once again ended in flux as to what will happen next.

I don't much like the comedy of humiliation. When it comes down to it, that may be why I don't laugh at good lines. It's cruel.

Season three ends with the promise of so much more.

Top Critic

Wild is the operative word here, obviously, since everything in The Thick of It whirls around the gravitational pull of Malcolm Tucker's savagery.
