    3 episodes does not consitute a series!! Great show not so great a deal from iTunes.
  • The best Political commedy ever!

    By Tuckers Law
    A briliant political commedy featuring great performamces from all the cast, lannucci has created a briliant comedy capturing the chaos of government perfectly. Smart dialogue and believable characters make every episode essential veiwing material, shot with quick cuts and tracking shots the series has the viceral feel of a documentary. The thick of it is a adult commedy with a high swear count, so I would not recomend it for the faint of heart, although its genius is undeniable!
  • Series 1 is the best

    By lebiz
    i just got into the thick of it recently. i absolutely love it, especially series 1. everyone in the first series just seems on the top of their game. capaldi as tucker as campbell is the best chararacter by a mile. but jamie is still probably my overall favourite as tucker's right hand hatchet man. he still has to have the most creative 'sweardowns' of them all. the pain which that man threatens to inflict with an iPod is scary...but well funny!

    Argh, itunes!!! Cant believe what I just purchased, read the short description before I bought this and thought I was buying all 6 episodes, instead I have have just been totally ripped off and got half a series. Half my fault, half itunes. Still very annoying. Very good series though and would have gave the whole series 4/5 even without my itunes disaster.
  • Should be required viewing for anyone of voting age...

    By Ntranced
    Simplay a fantastic show. Series 1 has 3 episodes, series 2 has 3 episodes to the reviewer asking earlier.
  • Simply, mind-blowingly wonderfully artistic use of swearing!!

    Some of the funniest 90ish minutes of TV you will ever see! Can't wait for series 2 later this year! SimonJLewis, there were only 3 episodes in season, which was aired in early 2005 and then 3 episodes in season 2, which was aired later that year which is why you get half the episodes for half the price. ZinZin, you may want to look again at the description, aswell as British contract law.
