The Thick of It
“You said yourself that if the PM sacks me after a week, it looks like he’s fucked up.”
“Yeah, but that was before, when your biggest problem was a fucking shit pun in a newspaper and a face like Dot Cotton licking piss off a nettle.”
Whilst it is not unheard of in the same manner as the other comedies on this list, The Thick of It’s relative obscurity in spite of it being one of the best British comedies of the last decade is maddening. Given Peter Capaldi’s soon to begin reign as Doctor Who, The Thick of It’s unnervingly sharp and hyper intelligent comedy should get a renewed and much deserved lease of life.
