“In the Loop” is a British comedy, revolving around bureaucracy, communication, idiocy and war, not necessarily in that order.
After a dim witted, mid level cabinet minister misspeaks on a tv show, saying, “War is unforeseeable”, the British and American governments both begin to prep themselves for war. War hawks and Peaceniks both mobilize, hold committee meetings, push position papers, and square off face to face.
It’s very much like a political version of “The Office”, except with a War looming.
And lots and lots of swearing.
