One of the reasons 'The Thick of It' stopped was because the writers thought real politics had become so absurd it was impossible to satirise - no matter how ridiculous a situation they came up with, it had either been done in real life by a politician, or was copied later on for real.

So true. With people like Johnson, Trump, and Rees-Mogg around - the show won't likely need as many sketch writers.

'Steve "Interesting" Davis's image was probably harmed too. Year later we've found out he's probably the only interesting snooker player of that era.'

:rolleyes: The only one who thought Steve 'interesting' was Barry Hearn. The two of them cleaned up and ruined the game.

Spitting Image trailer: Watch shocking first look at BritBox series

I'm not a fan of the political views of the series creators but I found the series amusing nonetheless. Looking forward to its return.

Do you think the creators will be too far up their own backsides to be funny and relevant in 2020? That's my prediction but I will be happy to be proven wrong.

When and on what chanel ?

The puppets are outstanding; the script very weak.

That’s what happened first time round. 

Let’s hope for an equivalent upturn!

As I predicted. These establishment champagne socialists all live in a bubble of their own CO2 output, with low intelligence sycophants from the general public praising them, making them believe they're comedic geniuses. You can see it happen on Twitter with has-been celebrities and actors. It's sad to see.

You can watch the first 3 episodes on Youtube now. 

I've thought they've been pretty good so far.  A few jokes fall flat, but mostly funny. 

No one, apart from Trump has really been savaged in my opinion.
