Editorial Reviews

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.

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 ½ stars for Veep. Vote this great, hysterical show into your cart!

"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.

VEEP is a very funny show from HBO. Somehow, Selina Meyer has become Vice-President of the United States, and a more bumbling, awkward VP has yet to be found. Even Biden seems more logical.

We are eased into into VPMeyers world and we are laughing all the way. Julia Louis-Dreyfus plays Meyer with the exact chord of hilarity and seriousness that are unexpected. Her assistants, are there to feed her every bit of information she needs and to provide the exact shade of lipstick required. Amy, played by Anna Chlumsky, is Meyer's chief of staff, while Gary, played by Tony Hale is Meyer's personal aide. Between them, they help Meyer get through PR disasters and the scheming political animals who want to make her look stupid. Not that she needs any help.

All the while Meyer is scheming to become one of the inside group of the President. She is often not invited to even the most uninteresting of Presidential meetings, and she can never make the big time. VP Meyer is in actuality a smart cookie led astray by her urge to be President. VEEP portrays a very realistic look at the life of a VP in DC. And, t will have you in hysterics much of the time.

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.
