This show is amazing and extremely funny. Most of the complaints on here are that there is too much "cussing" and she's not acting like Elaine. Umm... two things. It's an HBO show. Has anyone who has given this show a bad review because of its language ever watched HBO before?? They can say whatever they want to say. The show isn't on Lifetime, okay? Cursing comes with the territory. And, the second complaint people have, "she's not acting like Elaine" Well, no she isn't because this isn't Seinfeld. This is a whole new and different show. Actors do these things where they play other characters and act in different roles sometimes, it's very common. Please watch the show for yourself and don't judge it by these ridiculous reviews. Veep moves very fast, and it doesn't hold your hand and tell you when to laugh. It doesn't deserve to have so many negative reviews just because some people can't understand or appreciate the humor behind it, and are offended by the language. I'm sure you're...
"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...
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...
