    Review: 'Veep' Caps Off Uneven Season With Tears

    Armando Iannucci made it clear with last week's episode that "Veep" will be steering away from anything resembling real issues. While a pregnant Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfuss) at the end of "Baseball" opened the door to a potentially inspired direction for the show, one episode later it was exp...

    Review: Amusing 'Veep' Cheaply Sidesteps A Major Plot Development For Laughs

    Well, that was kind of cheap. After ending last week's episode on a potential game-changing plot development, it seems Armando Ianucci didn't have the balls to follow through with it, or least see where Selina Meyer's (Julia Louis-Dreyfuss) pregnancy could take the story in "Veep." It's not even fiv...

    Recap: 3 Weeks In, 'Veep' Gets More Focused & Funny While Taking A Bold Narrative Leap

    Listen, we know our "Veep" recaps dropped off for the past few weeks. A combination of the Cannes Film Festival and screeners that didn't arrive in time led to the gap in coverage, but when we finally sat down to catch up on what we missed, we were in for a very pleasant surprise: &quo...

    Why 'Veep' is More Sitcom Than Political Satire

    "Veep” may be set in the world of politics, but after three episodes, the HBO series has more in common with the modern strain of "Office"-style embarrassment comedies than creator Armando Iannucci’s other trenchant satires. The situations are the same: In each episode of ...

    Review: A Diva, A Dog & 20 Years In D.C. On 'Veep'

    If over the last couple of episodes of "Veep" we've been critical of the writers overstuffing their plot, that's not an issue this time around. But unfortuantely, the titular subject of the episode (who really only comes into play in the last third), is also the least interesting.

    Review: 'Veep' Goes 'Contagion' As A Virus Makes Its Way Through Washington

    We addressed this in the season's first episode, but if you're looking trenchant insight into the American political system played for laughs, "Veep" won't be doing that. But as, essentially, a workplace comedy boasting a higher concept that most, the week's entry proves that within that structure, ...
