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!
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.Read more ›
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.

Bit rough and negative, but interesting and tends to grow on you.Published 6 hours ago by Gareth Kucinskas
raunchy, vile language. Made me think that the writers have limited vocabularies. I must be from the wrong generation.
I guess I had to give it one star. I am no prude. Read more
