    Louis-Dreyfus's performance--which, like Congress, can be divided into two houses, Crackling Charm and Hysterical Ego--still drives the show, but we're getting more realistic sense of political gamesmanship. [22 Apr 2013, p.45]

    So glad VEEP is back! One of the smartest comedies on television. Julia Louis- Drefus delivers each line with perfection. This is a fast paced office like comedy with nonstop laughs. The writing is incredible. I will often watch each episode twice and I always discover a new joke the second time around. Full Review »

    Tragically underrated, Veep is a hilarious and witty political satire featuring a brilliant performance from Julia Dreyfus, along with excellent supporting roles from the rest of the cast. The humor works best within its more subtle jokes and references, and for those who love a strong script, there's always something going on to laugh at here. Full Review »

    Season one was OK... Season two however, thus far has been downright hilarious!! The entire cast is really delivering the goods this time around. Absolutely love it!

    How any critics gave this a low score and bad review completely baffles me!? Hopefully HBO wont cancel this one, like so many others in recent years...
