    [Silicon Valley is] paired with the third season of the savagely hilarious Veep, this combo promises to be HBO's most robust and certainly most entertaining comedy hour in years.

    [A] fast, funny political satire. [14 Apr 2014, p.49]

    Veep has become the clearest heir to 30 Rock and Arrested Development, and specific bits throughout the season recall both series.

    Tossing Meyer into the election fray was a great idea, particularly since it gets away from the well-worn path she strutted last season. Now, out of her comfort zone, she’s bobbing and weaving with the best of them.

    In addition to embarking on a substantive season-long story arc, these new episodes also tread fresh emotional territory.

    Line for outrageous line, Veep is still a wickedly funny gut-buster. Yet while I could relate to Selina the perpetually marginalized chump, flailing to advance, Selina the stumping, power-grabbing candidate risks confusion.

    The show works because all of its actors seem so human, so likeable, despite the words coming from their mouths.

    The show's as cynical as ever, but it doesn't feel nearly as empty. Selina's more of an actual character--and has become an accomplished slinger of four-letter verbiage in her own right--and even if the team's screw-ups remain inevitable, the ways in which they screw up feel far less predictable.

    Louis-Dreyfus can still sell an uncomfortable political smile like no one else. I will say that the tone this season seems somewhat unnecessarily darker at times than in the first two.

    Veep remains pretty well defined by its protagonist’s inherent plight: noteworthy, yes, but still a significant step away from true greatness.

    A brilliant show led by Comedic God Julia Louis-Dreyfus, each season proves to be better than the previous one. The writing is great, the cast is perfect. If this show doesn't win Best Comedy Series at The Emmys, I am going to be mad. Full Review »
