Tv Season Info

In the fourth season, Peter Mannion (Roger Allam) is appointed Secretary of the State for Social Affairs, but he tangles with a junior partner. Elsewhere, a "thought camp" is held at a country hotel; scandal erupts following a suicide; Tucker plots Nicola's downfall; and both political parties face investigation.

Critic Reviews for The Thick of It Season 4

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (8)

[The] series out there that is razor sharp, full of incisive political satire, and very, very funny.

Top Critic

Without [Tucker] at his hideous peak, The Thick of It is still funny, but somehow it feels like an echo of itself.

Aug 31, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The brain-child of satirist-extraordinaire Armando Iannucci, the show features more jokes-per-minute...as it focusses on spin and the way it has come to dominate modern politics.

If you're looking to brush up on your swearing-skills, The Thick of It is truly inspiring for all budding foul-mouths out there.

Iannucci finds a way to take obscene language that would sound like overkill from the pen of any other writer and make it sound like poetry.

The Thick of It...may largely have lost its insurrectionary aura but still has plenty of life left in it yet.

Aug 31, 2018 | Full Review…

One of the great strengths of the series is that while its situations seem straight out of the realm of caricature, its characters do not. Characters do, at times, register genuine consciences.

It's the political specificity of The Thick of It's situations that give it bite. And the way it draws its various characters gives it a kind of poignance for all its hard-hearted cynicism.

Aug 31, 2018 | Full Review…

There is an unsubtlety, a too-obviousness, about it that makes me wonder whether Armando Iannucci, what with all his other projects like taking over America and the world, had let his eye off this one.

Top Critic

[The Thick of It is] rightly applauded as a testosterone-charged, R-rated update of Yes, Minister, replete with a withering yet caustic take on social progress and those charged with implementing it.
