VEEP: The Complete First Season Review

  • Excerpt: Veep is that rare bird, a political satire that actually works as an effective comedy. A sophisticated lampoon of our nation’s inner political workings at its highest levels, the talented ensemble cast surrounding star Julia Louis-Dreyfus delivers line after line with sharp timing. Veep is a rapid-fire comedy with no partisan leanings but gets truly funny at times.

  • Conclusion: Even if you're not ordinarily drawn to politics or satire and don't find the subject matter and storylines the most compelling, "Veep" will still probably win you over with its appealing atmosphere and sharp writing. It's rarely hilarious and it could use the occasional breather and more opportunities to humanize these characters. Still, it's smart and palpable comedy that plays to and off its cast's considerable talents.

  • Excerpt: After scoring a hit on the BBC with the political satire The Thick of it , creator Armando Iannucci brought the concept overseas, first as an aborted ABC pilot in 2007, and then to HBO where it became Veep . Starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus as a vice president in turmoil, the series proved a good fit for the premium network, where it got great reviews, strong ratings, and several Emmy nominations.

Veep: The Complete First Season

High-Def Digest
8 March 2013
  • Conclusion: 'Veep' is one hell of an ensemble comedy for HBO. It's amazingly funny. All of the actors do a tremendous job and the writing is great. The audio and video presentations are top notch and the extras are decent as well. This first season of only eight episodes will only get you revved up for the upcoming second season, not to mention the fact that it's completely re-watchable to get in all the subtle jokes. Highly recommended.
