In a time when sitcoms are becoming increasingly reliant on brain dead slapstick humor forced on audiences by a recurring laughter track, Veep brings something fresh and unique to the table. Based inside the beltway of Washington D.C.'s political circuit, this series employs a stellar cast and great writing. A valiant return to the stage for the ever charming Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Selina Meyer), but the situational part of this comedy is best built up by the quirkiness of her close group comprised of Matt Walsh (Mike McLintock), Tony Hale (Gary Walsh), Anna Chlumsky (Amy Brookheimer), Reid Scott (Dan Egan), and Sufe Bradshaw (Sue Wilson). Apart from the core group, surrounding the central character, Timothy Simons (Jonah Ryan), Gary Cole (Kent Davison), Kevin Dunn (Ben Cafferty), and Sam Richardson (Richard Splett) deliver an additional layer of well-timed comedic performances that leaves one rollicking in laughter during various moments. For those seeking a punch to the belly for a quick laugh, this show may not be appealing. For one, it is only funny when the situation of the protagonists are taken in perspective to the political climate. But for those actively following American politics or deeply invested in it, Veep provides a much needed goofy angle to a gloomy and, at times, morbidly nihilistic institution. The first two seasons take some time to build up characters and create moments of true laughter, but the later seasons magically pull the funny bunny out of the hat in every other scene. An enjoyable and engaging performance by a veteran cast and a truly well written comedy show.

An excellent comedy. With the end of Parks and Rec, this and Brooklyn Nine-Nine are my favourite comedies on TV right now.

I guess we'll see Selina for "another term" since the show has just been picked up for a 4th season. :D

Magnificent comedy/satire. Some of the most explosive one liners ever delivered on a TV show. Great actors, great storylines!

While I do get the reason a comedy show mocking politics and the people around it is so successful, I found Veep to be barely funny most of the times with some giggles here and there. I cannot laugh when all, seriously all, of the characters are so unlikable and doesn't change at all maintaining their ridiculous problematic personality without any room for improvement. Imagine a comedy show but with a bunch of arrogant pricks, a few masochists and submissive types, greedy types that are openly greedy with loose morals and you would see a really crap show where you would found Veep. I do get the joke were they are basically saying politics is the joke and people in it are pretty much the worse people on earth, but even so, most jokes I didn't find it funny, even if some were pretty original or smart. I guess I just don't like these embarrassing-type joke or absurd reaction to dickness.

It's no "The Thick of It", but I have to say I love it.

A good comedy. It really entertains me. I think that it would fit better with longer episodes

Decided to give it a shot since In The Loop was immediately and immensely entertaining, also to see the actor that bested Ty Burrell at the last Emmy. Anyhow, 2 eps so far, a lot funnier than I was expected. It manages to point out the flaws in the political system without really going after anyone in particular, I'm genuinely impressed by the chemistry and likability of the cast, especially the titular, talented Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Damn, woman.

Very clever, and fun show. Sometimes it made me cringe at what was happening but that just adds to the awesomeness of the show. It was a bit of an acquired taste for me, but love the show so much more for it now. Brace yourselves! POTUS is coming :)

It's OK, I guess.
