Series 1-4 now on BBC iplayer. Some of the sharpest, funniest and sweariest writing you'll ever see. Absolutely brilliant.
Don't recommend watching in work though or with young kids unless you need to educate them in the fine art of cursing.
Also if you only know Peter Capaldi as Doctor Who, you may get a bit of a surprise.

    Doesn't work any more.
    Reality has surpassed the satire. :wink:
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    No. What's actually happening is Ianucci has written a new series, which is being acted in real time as the next level in immersive entertainment. Alexander Johnson plays 'Boris'; Theresa May appears as a version of herself (like Matt LeBlanc in Episodes). It's a dead cert for a Bafta.
    1985 Mercian King of Mercia - work in progress (Hah! Who am I kidding?)
    Pinnacle Monzonite

    Part of the anti-growth coalition

    This makes much more sense than current politics being real.

    Really? I watched several episodes last night and it's still fantastic. Depends upon your sense of humour I suppose but I find it brilliant.

    Not my point.
    We live in strange times when reality is more ridiculous than satire.

  • Reality has ALWAYS been more bizarre than reality, when Thick of It first came out some political insiders thought it was too tame! Whatever, it still stands as a fantastically funny series.
