Pointless Nonsense

Posted in tv by Bill on April 29, 2012

The Thick of It is from the same creative team as Veep, and basically the same concept, but about the Secretary of State for Social Affairs in the UK rather than the Vice President. And right away it was considerably funnier than the Veep pilot, largely due to the characters of the Secretary, who is needy and somewhat pathetic and reminiscent of Larry Sanders, and the director of communications for the Prime Minister, who is awesomely vulgar (the show actually has a writer they refer to as a “swearing consultant”).
