    Veep offers uncomfortable comedy at its most sardonic.

    Season two yields modest improvement thanks to shrewd cast additions, augmenting the pleasures of Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

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 »

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