Overview

The original BBC inspiration for the hilarious HBO series Veep, starring Julia Louis Dreyfus, as well as the Academy Award nominated film In the Loop, The Thick of It finally arrives on DVD! The Thick of It smashes its way through the corridors of power in a bulldozer of amusing slip-ups and sharp satire. This brilliant and hilarious series chronicles the blunders of the fictitious Department of Social Affairs and Citizenship, a government department barely registering on the national radar. In this Ministry, every announcement is followed by a whirlwind of u-turns, every policy is a scramble and every mishap is met with abuse from the Prime Minister’s policy enforcer. Garlanded with rave reviews and packed with awards, this irreverent, brilliant, and painfully funny series is justly seen as a jewel in the BBC’s crown.

    Outstanding series that's a cross between The West Wing and The Office. Peter Capaldi's Malcom Tucker uses profanity the way other artists work in clay or oil paints--brilliantly.
