Editorial Reviews

HBO delivers a new season of the Emmy-winning comedy series created by Armando Iannucci (Oscar nominee for co-writing In the Loop) that takes a sharp, satirical look at the insular world of Washington politics. Veep follows the whirlwind day-to-day existence of Vice President Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus in her Emmy-winning role) as she juggles her busy public schedule, puts out political fires, and defends the president’s interests, even as she tries to improve her dysfunctional relationship with the chief executive. Over the course of ten Season 2 episodes, Veep hilariously skewers the nuances of everyday office politics – set against the backdrop of the second highest office in the land.

When HBO's "Veep" premiered, it was embraced with favorable critical response and even scored star Julia Louis-Dreyfus an Emmy Award for Best Actress in a Comedy series. Louis-Dreyfus is, indeed, a formidable talent who plunges herself into the role of America's vice president with great abandon. Alternately vain, selfish, clueless, and driven to succeed, her naked ambition and ability to master the art of spin is eerily realistic while being uproarious. Of course, it helps that she's surrounded by a giant cast of characters who must serve the VP's every need while juggling their own instinct for career survival. An unorthodox and savvy combination of the dysfunctional workplace sitcom and a scathing political satire, "Veep" became even richer and more rewarding in the Second Season of ten episodes. Ribald, unapologetic, and outrageously profane, I'd like to say that this was a complete exaggeration of what we might find in Washington, but I'm not so sure! Detractors of "Veep," those that are openly critical, oftentimes target the show's use of language. Those sensitive to the use of excessive profanity probably shouldn't be shopping for Season Two of a program that offended them originally. But just in case, let me reiterate that "Veep" is not for those that are squeamish and/or put off by colorful exclamations. It retains its hard edge and outspoken nature in this season as well.

In Season Two, Vice President Selina Meyer (Louis-Dreyfus) is even more concerned about leaving a legacy within the current administration. Oftentimes sidelined, she steps up into a major power position in a crisis that involves rescuing hostages from the grips of a terrorist cell.

5.0 out of 5 stars A ribald take on politics March 24, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Many of us have become cynical in relation to our political system. This hilarious series created by Armando Ianucci, who created British TV's In the Thick of it, speaks to that cynicism with a great result. These political animals aren't the heroes of hope and change they purport to be, but are remarkably fallible and human. They squabble, they spar, they grovel, and they shove each other aside for recognition. But all is done with a light hand and a comedic touch. The language is profoundly filthy and would be off putting if not so damn funny. You can just imagine say, Joe Biden speaking this way behind closed doors. Julia Louis Dreyfus is remarkable in her third star turn in a series, she is just immune to type casting, rising to every occasion with originality and wit. The whole cast is exceptional, in fact. There are two stand outs for me in supporting roles. Tony Hale deservedly won the Emmy for playing the VP's bumbling, and too eager to pleas ease personal aide Gary with charm. Her personal assistant is her gatekeeper and is played by Sufe Bradshaw. She is the one person who prides herself on being above the fray and her no nonsense personality drops the other characters straight into their skirmishes and foibles. Part of me imagines that this is the way Washington really works behind the scenes.

I'm somebody who loves comedies but I'm not really into political drama type shows. I have watched some of the West Wing and I like that about 70% of the time. So with Veep I had my doubts but I'd like to say that it delivers on all fronts. Also personally I love Tony Hale (I actually love Buster from arrested development) and I think he does a great job of not being typecast as a Buster like character. It's strange that that was a fear I had going into the show but he delivers. It's also nice to see somebody shake free of the "Seinfeld curse" and Julia Louise Dreyfus does a great job.

One thing that I think is good with the show it's not a "serial" type show like Homeland or Dexter. It's not a show you need to watch completely in order and each episode sort of stands on its own. As always with television shows like this I recommend the watching in order style of viewing but this show is a little more lenient in that regard.

I'm also happy to report that this season has two more episodes in season one. I love that television nowadays focuses more on quality than quantity with the shows they make. I still think for 10 episodes charging more than $30 is overpriced but what can you do.

Thanks for reading!

5.0 out of 5 stars better than season one September 5, 2013
Format:DVD
like most five star shows which are working, this one too has a great talent behind the scenes, creator and writer Armando Iannucci. He was inspired to create this show after creating a UK show, "The Thick of It,", which was expanded into a film, "In The Loop" which brought the THICK'S Malcom (main character playedmby Peter Cipaldi) to the USA. i have seen all of the Iannucci shows and film and they are all excellent.

he faced two huge problems in bringing this show to the USA. one, we have a different political system to satirize. although we are both democracies, the structures of our governments are quite different. two, british humor is different and is an acquired taste for non-Britains.

some are complaining about the swearing in this american show. it is NOTHING in comparison to the swearing in the british show. Malcolm, the lead character in the UK sho,w is a swearing machine compared to Selena in the American show.

this second season hits the show's stride. it builds upon and improves the already quite good first season. one of the very best comediennes in the business, Julia Louise-Dreyfus, plays Selena, vice president of the United States. She'd like to be president but it is hard to achieve that when the president acts for the most part as if you don't even exist. Selena is vain, independently wealthy, unsuited for marriage but quite lusty, and only informed on many issues as well as her staff briefs her on them. Any sane person would hate to be dependent on her staff as their primary concern, to a person, is keeping Selena's image bright for their futures, rather than really knowing anything about issues of the day.

what this show satirizes, just like its UK counterpart did, is the downside of democracies.
