Mantis wrote:The Thick of It is absolutely fantastic. Early seasons are based on a Labour government with Capaldi playing a parody of Alastair Campbell, then later they're opposition and a new cast of Tory/Lib Dem ministers are added in.
Chris Langham and Roger Allam are particularly brilliant in it alongside Capaldi.

The two shows have similarities, but Veep is going for an altogether different tone. The Thick Of It is very hard edged and full of people who don't really like politics, whilst Veep has softer edges and is generally about inept people trying to do their jobs. Veep reminds me more of 2012 than The Thick Of It.
In a similar vein Dreamland, an Australian show similar to 2012, is worth checking out. It's also on Netflix.
