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.

...insecure and shallow, but I suspect that many of them are. Just look at what drives the scandals they are often involved in. I also suspect that the language is a bit more Hollywood than DC. Use of the f-word (and cursing in general) by articulate people is for shock-value or intimidation (as opposed to lazy speech) and DC is ALL about power and influence. And keep in mind one of the all-time great political comments came from former Texas Senator Phil Graham. He said, "Politics is show-business for ugly people."

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.

Take the leap. BEST new show IMHO. I often watched the episodes 2-3 times because I'd be laughing so hard. Loved the movie In The Loop; Veep does NOT disappoint. And, I love colourful words; I shan't lie. Happy next season will be 10 episodes instead of 8, it wasn't enough! Here's hoping for deleted scenes, et cetera, in the extras. I'd totally vote for Selina.
