The Thick of It is maybe the perfect show with regard to how entertaining you might imagine a naturalistic comedy about British politics could be. It’s available in its entirety on youtube, and the first five minutes of this episode have to be enough to convince anyone/everyone.
Bonus: Armando Iannucci’s new show, Veep, an American version of The Thick of It, is also available on youtube, but it’s not as funny.
Bonus bonus: In The Loop, a spin-off movie of The Thick of It, is on Netflix instant.
