Critic Reviews for The Thick of It: Season 4

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

Nothing has changed- the writing is just as sharp, the performances and dialogue just as memorable, and we still have total idiots in control both on-screen and off.

Most devastatingly, the show's heart and soul, the ruthless and foulmouthed spin doctor Malcolm Tucker ends up deflated and defeated, gazing past the camera into the abyss.

October 29, 2012 | Full Review…

This is a grounded political farce that expertly straddles the line between realistic and ridiculous, complete with lots of inventive swearing and winks to current political events.
