The Thick of It

I watched In The Loop last night. I thought it was OK but not as good as the BBC series The Thick of It, the stable from which it sprang. The Thick of It is gloriously absurd, nasty and funny. Here's a typical episode from season 3 featuring the new, hopeless government minister, Nicola Murray under siege from the press, the opposition and her own civil servants. There is a lot of creative swearing so this shouldnt be watched at work.
