Best Satire On Telly

The Thick Of It - It's the best fucking satire on telly, filmed in a pseudo documentary way it's a pure class, our "hero" is a spin doctor who makes Alistair Campbell look like a 1st year at a convent school, trying to ensure that he spins himself safe after the prime minister suddenly resigns. It's classic Armando Iannucci. For you lucky people who haven't seen it yet the two parter is going to be shown on BBC2 9.30-10.30 Saturday the 7th and the next Saturday 14th 9.00 til 10pm.

  1. I've really tried to watch this, but as a civil servant I find it too painfully accurate to be able to enjoy it.

    I had this problem with The Office too. Observational comedy can be too well observed.
