    - We're offering him Northern Ireland.

    - I think he's expecting to be offered Transport.

    - Well tell him he's taking the bus to George Best airport, right?

    That is brilliant news.

    The first season was brilliant, the two specials were fantastic, and In The Loop was hilarious.

    too many good lines:


    - It's like being Simon Cowell, only without the ability to say, "Fuck off, you're mental".

    - Turn that fucking racket off! It's just VOWELS! Subsidised... foreign... vowels!

    - Just fucking do it! Otherwise you'll find yourself in some medieval war zone in the Caucasus with your arse in the air, trying to persuade a group of men in balaclavas that sustained sexual violence is not the fucking way forward!

    - If it isn't Humpty Numpty sitting on top of a collapsing wall like some clueless egg cunt.

    - You are a real boring fuck. Sorry, sorry, I know you disapprove of swearing so I'll sort that out. You are a boring F, star, star, CUNT!

    can't believe yous haven't mentioned the best line ever said on tv.

    "If you ever say anything about Al Jolson again I'll take that ipod and ram it up your cock! And then stick my fist up your hole to press shuffle everytime a song comes on I don't like. Which'll be fucking [i:1a66abfa17]all[/i:1a66abfa17] of them."

    Plus, on the morning of a resolution to the leadership crisis;

    "Ok people, wake up and smell the [i:1a66abfa17]cock[/i:1a66abfa17]!"

    Quite a rough edit though I thought. I'd happily sit through the four-and-a-half-hour version just to get the full spectrum of profanity on offer.
  12. avatar my-angel-rocks
    I thought it was as roughly editted as The Thick of It, although yeah, having a longer version would have been fun. What are the DVD extras like, many hours of deleted swearing?

    coming soon: "Lord of the Rings - extended Herbert edition" containing 16 weeks of additional footage.

    And - it is brilliant!

    I miss old paedo chap, however Malcolm seems to have stepped up a notch in his brilliance.

    The lead up to him being told about the missing files in the last ep was just toe squirmingly excellent.
  20. avatar The Fires of Hell
    Hmm, I actually think this one was probably the only episode yet that hasnt fired on all cylinders. It relied far too much on Malcolm to hold it. The trouble is he can only do one thing really, as much as I love it. The minister isnt in any way funny, and Olly's lines all sound far too scripted now, in a way. There's not as much evident spontinaiety. Still very funny of course, but more danger needed.
  21. avatar salfhal
    Anyone know of a torrent for the first 2? Cant find one anywhere, only just started at the new series, the show is actually immense
  22. avatar TheNightMonkey
    Favourite Malcolm quote so far:

    "What's the matter with you? You look like you've shat a lego house!"
  23. avatar Bileofwood
    Olly often steals the show. There was one but in the first series, think it was episode 4 or 5 when it was clear they were doing their improvising thing, and Olly said something completely off the wall. Hugh looked at him and asked "did you just make that up?", which was more Chris Langham asking than Hugh.

    A good percentage of what they do is unscripted. However you've got to have great chemistry for that to work and it probably takes a while to get into the flow of that - so far Rebecca ain't a patch on Langham. Certainly season 1 was better towards the end.

    Malcolm is up there with Basil Fawlty as an all time amazing character.

    "I just wanted to say to you by way of introductory remarks that I'm extremely miffed about todays events and in my quest to try to make you understand the level of my unhappiness I'm likely to use an awful lot of what we would call 'violent sexual imagery', and I just wanted to check that neither of you would be terribly offended by that..."

    "You have laid your first real egg of solid fuck"

    You should be able to get all of S2(/3) on Iplayer. Or Youtube.

    I got Series 1 on thebox.biz

    Just found out Series 2 only had 3 "specials" epsiodes (i assume due to the whole Langham pedo case)

    This is the 3rd Series. 1 and 2 only had 3 episodes each, followed by the 2 hour long specials. This series will have 8 episodes.

    I think the first thing Malcolm said in the first ever show was (when talking on the phone), 'yea..yea..I know, he's about as useless as a marzipan dildo'.

    Well, the first 6 episodes are collected on the "Complete First Series" dvds.

    Aye I know, but that's just to simplify things for the dippy public.
  31. avatar salfhal
    The 1st series had 6 episodes aired from May-October 2005

    2nd was 3 specials; Rise of the Nutters and Spinners and Losers (1&2)

    This new one'll have 6 just like the 1st series.

    Pretty sure series 2 was like that because of Langham's arrest in '05 ... Perhaps they had won the new series/budget then got screwed when Langam was nicked? Would explain the weird layout.

    But yeah, the show is fantastic, hadn't watched it until I stumbled on the new series on iPlayer.

    Right, everybody STOP being wrong.

    When a series is commissioned, the number of episodes in each order is the series.

    The Thick of It was initially commissioned for 3 episodes, making that the first series. After the critical success of it a second series of 3 episodes was commissioned, presumably as 6 episode runs are standard issue for British comedy series and they were intending to ultimately release it on DVD, which they subsequently did as The Complete First Series - less confusing for retailers and customers than The Complete First and Second Series, but there only being 6 episodes.

    Anyway, after the second of these series Langham had his run in with paedo-justice, but the BBC wanted to re-commission a full series - however, since they'd have to re-cast the central MP character Iannucci re-negotiated 2 stand-alone specials. Specials in the BBC are NEVER considered a series - ie Dr Who Christmas Specials aren't series 5 on their own.

    One special screened January 2007, the follow-up was July 2007. Following this Armando wrote In The Loop, shot it in 2008 and released it early 2009. The anticipation of this meant the BBC were falling over themselves to commission the third series of The Thick Of It.

    Most of this is from Wikipedia, with the whys and wherefores from interviews I read with Iannucci around the time of In The Loop's release.

    None of it is important, except to us [i:4534c7ad19]really[/i:4534c7ad19] committed pedants.
