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 ›
