Critic Reviews for The Thick of It: Season 4

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (4)

[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.

[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.

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.

August 31, 2018 | Full Review…

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

August 31, 2018 | Full Review…

The way specific political races are woven into its fictitious plot lines is also very clever.
