The Thick of Its eighth season is right around the corner, and I’ve got a feeling that The Office will once again be a popular choice among viewers. After all, The Thick of It has been on for eight seasons now, so it’s time to see what all the fuss is about. The first season ended with an episode that was very near the end of the show’s time slot, which may have been a little too long. But since that last installment aired, there haven’t been any major changes.
The eighth season will feature episodes that are in the same vein as the show’s early seasons, yet at a shorter length. The writers have mentioned that they want to make The Thick of It more of a light show, similar to The Mentalist or The Firm. The goal isn’t to make The Thick of It a dark comedy like Seinfeld, The Simpsons, or House Rules. The goal instead is to create an emotional soap opera, much like How I Met Your Mother. The main article is going to go over some of the major characters and themes that will play a major role in season eight.
The first major theme of The Thick of It is the relationship between Langham and Andy. The two characters met in grade school, but it wasn’t until The Thick of It that they found their significant others. The two have become very close friends over the course of the series, and in the seventh season, they even dated each other. The relationship between the two characters has played out onscreen in several different forms: Andy ditching Langham to go date someone he knew was ex-military; Langham letting Andy stay at The Station if he asked, and Andy giving up his own job in order to help fund the struggling restaurant. The fact that the two of them were close has kept The Thick of It fans going until now.
Episode of Thick
The second episode of The Thick of It features a twist on the “good guy/bad guy” dynamic that The Thick of It was known for. The story revolves around a prime minister of Canada is haunted by images from his past. The storyline involves him trying to deal with social issues surrounding his government while dealing with his personal issues as well.
The third episode of The Thick of It involved the character of Minister Bob Hawke addressing the British house of parliament. The Thick of It used the medium of television to tell its story to a wider audience: it featured an all-out effort on the part of Hawke to address his constituents, unlike most prime ministers have ever done. The Thick of It introduced new characters such as The Prime Minister’s advisers, The First Minister, and The Chief of The Defence Force as well as several members of the House of Commons. The number of characters, the way The Thick of It mixed fictional elements with non-fiction facts, and the general feel of the story made it one of the best-written programs in the history of Canadian television.
The Thick of It was canceled by The Canadian Network after 3 seasons, but it was able to continue on another network called Crave TV. The show returned for a fourth season in 2021. The show is not as popular as it was before, perhaps because it is not as good as originally thought. The story is not as gripping as it once was, but the cast and the acting performances are still fantastic. The writing style is still excellent, and The Thick of It is just as entertaining as any other Canadian television series.
