Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Julia Louis-Dreyfus won an Emmy for her leading role in the droll series Veep--and it's well deserved. It's as if every role Louis-Dreyfus had was helping to hone her for this role--Elaine in Seinfeld, Christine in The New Adventures of Old Christine. Veep is an HBO dramedy that shows what The West Wing might have been like if created by Larry David. Louis-Dreyfus is U.S. Sen. Selina Meyer, a rising star in her political party, which has high hopes for her to run for president one day. Then suddenly she is tapped to become vice president. As shown by series creator Armando Iannucci (In the Loop), the role of U.S. vice president is the highest-level bird in a gilded cage of American politics. Meyer has very little power, a lot of visibility, a ton of appearances to make, and not much to do. And the burning irony is that while being the No. 2 executive in the United States should be a great launching point for her further political aspirations, in fact it's a daily reinforcement in the minds of the public and her supporters that she is, well, No. 2. It's a delicious premise that doesn't disappoint. The boxed set offers tons of extras, including a great little making-of featurette, lots of commentaries from cast and crew, and some not-quite-inspiring deleted public service announcements from the vice president. Hail to the small cheese! --A.T. Hurley

Product Description

Former senator Selina Meyer was a rising star in her party, a charismatic leader with White House potential. Then she became Vice President. Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Emmy winner for Seinfeld and The New Adventures of Old Christine) stars in Veep, a new HBO comedy series created by Armando Iannucci (Oscar nominee for co-writing In the Loop) that follows the whirlwind day-to-day existence of the Vice President as she puts out political fires, juggles a busy public schedule and demanding private life, and defends the president’s interests, even as she tries to improve her dysfunctional relationship with the chief executive. In eight Season 1 episodes, Veep hilariously skewers and satirizes both the nuances of everyday office politics and the political world in an environment where even the most banal decision – from a yogurt flavor to choice of the VP pet – can have unexpected and far-reaching consequences.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do NOT let the bad reviews fool you... May 2, 2013
Format:DVD
This show is amazing and extremely funny. Most of the complaints on here are that there is too much "cussing" and she's not acting like Elaine. Umm... two things. It's an HBO show. Has anyone who has given this show a bad review because of its language ever watched HBO before?? They can say whatever they want to say. The show isn't on Lifetime, okay? Cursing comes with the territory. And, the second complaint people have, "she's not acting like Elaine" Well, no she isn't because this isn't Seinfeld. This is a whole new and different show. Actors do these things where they play other characters and act in different roles sometimes, it's very common. Please watch the show for yourself and don't judge it by these ridiculous reviews. Veep moves very fast, and it doesn't hold your hand and tell you when to laugh. It doesn't deserve to have so many negative reviews just because some people can't understand or appreciate the humor behind it, and are offended by the language. I'm sure you're all adults, you can handle curse words. There are far more offensive things in life than, "the F word."

5.0 out of 5 stars A Veep With All Kinds of Issues June 18, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
I'll tell you what...HBO has done it again! With only an eight episode first season, Veep has got my vote! The show is funny, witty, well acted, and at the end of each short 30-minute episode I'm left wishing the show was an hour. The good news: Veep has been picked up for a second season according to a 4/30/2012 Hollywood Reporter article.

Like The Office, the show is shot in that improv, hand-held camera, 'you are there' style of filming, which for me can get a little annoying (especially since filming in that style has been an epidemic of late), but that is the show's only negative in my opinion.

The show follows VP Selina Meyer and her bumbling staff as they try to navigate through the brutal behind the scenes world of Washington DC politics. And for the most part poor Selina and her staff find themselves in wayyyy over their heads in almost every situation. The result is the hilariousness that ensues as we watch Selina get herself into one embarrassing and humiliating situation after another, then try to get out of those situations without self destructing.

And don't get me wrong about the "bumbling staff" comment...I mean no disrespect to the supporting cast. The chemistry between Julia Louis-Dreyfus and the cast of 6 primary supporting actors (Anna Chlumsky, Tony Hale, Reid Scott, Timothy Simons, Matt Walsh & Sufe Bradshaw) is the key ingredient to Veep's excellence.

4 ˝ stars for Veep. Vote this great, hysterical show into your cart!

Format:Blu-ray
"Veep" creator Armando Iannucci brings his unorthodox brand of workplace comedy and political satire to American government with HBO's ribald showcase for Julia Louis-Dreyfus. If you are familiar with Iannucci's impeccable British series "The Thick of It," (which was also the basis for the feature film "In The Loop" which netted Iannucci a Screenplay Oscar nomination) in many ways--this is just a twist on that successful formula. Both sitcoms (at times) play as fairly conventional workplace comedies driven by awkward moments and uncomfortable blunders. The casts struggle valiantly to keep their heads above water, maintain a dignity in the most unprofessional situations, and deal with the incompetency of those around them. Here's the thing that separates the shows, though. These workplaces just happens to be in the top offices of the Government. In England, "The Thick of It" is set in the fictional Department of Social Affairs and Citizenship with direct ties to the Prime Minister's office while, in America, "Veep" is set in the offices of the actual Vice President. And almost the entire basis for both shows is how the staff can spin any occurrence, no matter how tragic or absurd, with the media, the public, and the country's real power brokers.

Louis-Dreyfus plays Vice President Selina Meyer to perfection. As she tries to carve out a niche for herself within the administration, her continuous exclusion (the president is never in direct contact with her) causes her to seek attention in other ways. She is both insulated by her faithful staff and compromised by their antics. The politics of "Veep" is not about getting things accomplished but rather by remaining as unobjectionable as possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just you average F-Bomb April 28, 2013
Format:DVD
After reading some reviews, and being a fan of JLD, I decided to watch the first season of Veep, and I was not disappointed. I got my share of slapstick and wit. The writing is superb and the performances by every actor are top notch; they each have their own little quirks that separate them, yet they are so real and relatable.

All the one star reviews here seem to revolve around the use of the "f-word" on the show, well to that I say "seriously?" The show is a satiric comedy on HBO, this comedy's f word equals showing breasts and a penis on an HBO drama. Its just a word, one that many people use everyday, and I'm sure that people in government use it too, obviously not when giving public addresses, but behind the scenes(which is what this show portrays more often than not) I'm sure they use it more often than they'd like to admit.

Bottom line, this show is smart and witty humor that can go crude at times, but it only aims to increase the comedic value of the piece and show us a side of Washington that we don't see, and maybe one that we would not even want to imagine, but one that is very, very funny.
