It's so dumb. It's so dumb. The characters are evil in the way a 13 year old would imagine to be slimy, not Kevin Spacey in Glengarry Glen Ross evil/slimy. It's the exact plot of The Thick Of It with all the humour sucked out.
And yet... it commits SO MUCH to it's super super super super SUPER dumb style that I kinda like it.
