I don't think we've ever had a discussion about this show on Ovarit. I love it; it's probably one of my favorite shows ever. Julia Louis-Dreyfus plays the first female Vice President and the show is about her and her staff.

I love how the show explores the specific difficulties Selena faces as a female politician and later in the series, there is actually some really good stuff about the generational divide among women.

The first time I watched it I had more sympathy for the staff. I thought they were all being held back by how terrible Selena is, but on re-watch I realized that, no, they're all terrible in their own ways. They all deserved each other. Except Gary. Poor, poor Gary.

I can't tell you how many times I've used the line, "If men got pregnant, you could get an abortion at the ATM."

Thanks for these recs! The Thick of It is on Hulu so I'll start with that one.

I've watched The Thick of It over and over. I needed subtitles and a slang dictionary.
