This is surprisingly entertaining.

That show was great. Not as well known as it should be because it had the bad luck of premiering on 9/11/2001.

Ianucci also made The Thick of It, which you should really watch if you haven't seen it. One of the best pieces of political satire ever made.

If you haven't seen Yes Minister/Yes Prime Minister, you really should. 30 years on and still great political satire.

There's some fantastic parts like the bit about leading questions: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G0ZZJXw4MTA

+1 for The Thick of It. Which is, miraculously, free to watch on Hulu (at least in the US).

Elephant in the room indeed.

I hadn't actually made that connection!
