'cause it is
the worst episode >>> the film
But i don't dislike it, i'll probably watch it now, it was just kind of a dissapointment when put up against the brilliance of the series.
I missed the start of the series on BBC4, and had to drag myself away from watching the rest so I could keep it in order. I did cave and watch a few minutes though, and thankfully it still looked magnificent.
Though perhaps everyone who cares has seen it already.
then just watch it constantly
and then i wondered why I put it off for so long.
but I've been wanting to see it again for ages, the jokes were so thick and fast that seeing it once wasn't really enough. Hope they stick it on iplayer!
I'm with tomatron up there, this is going in the sky+ archives and NEVER BEING DELETED. probably the most quotable movie since forever - "so what am I, tit meat?"
while having the complete box set of the thick of it pre-ordered on play due to all the good things you have heard about it.
or best to watch the film where it comes up in relation to the tv show?
because all the characters are different (apart from 1) - it's completely independent from the thick of it, but you might enjoy the film more if you are familiar with the style of the thick of it
i watched the film first and loved it, i understood a few of the characters a little better having watched the series *but* i don't think you need to delay watching the film until afterwards. you'll want to watch it again anyway.
It's sort of weird in that it's almost like it's set in a parallel universe to The Thick Of It, where the characters are the same but with different names. Concept's the same, just completely independent plotwise.
the interchange between Capaldi and Gandolfini may be the most concentrated 30 seconds of venom I've ever heard
still excellent work though.
Didn't live up to the heights of The Thick Of It and was made more underwhelming by the awful OTT wanking-over it received from losers.
Don't even know why I'm bothering to post this, either.
but flicking over onto The Thick of It straight after you see how much better it is in a TV setting. It's all about capturing the small scale, inconsequential twattery of politics, which works better on an open, unbookended programme than on something that's trying to be a self contained piece. It allows it to be more dynamic, for some reason
This was pretty class.
But didn't seem quite as good as it did at the flicks. Maybe it was the lack of 150 people laughing along with me in the room? Or the fact I was knackered and fell asleep for the ending...
Rise Of The Nutters the first of the 2 one off special episodes is the best hour of Loop/Thick by miles. way better than the film.
the specials are easily the best.
...with naturally durable dialogue that bends around each word to create that satisfying comedy ''thwack''. Iannucci is god.
