    The series reserves its most blistering humor for the universal narcissism on display, always distracting from the real work at hand. For all the brilliant, tossed-off insults and uniformly excellent performances, including Patton Oswalt as a "hands-on" aide to the vice president, the season's through line is its treatment of politics as a con artist's medium.

    Veep enters its fourth season, firmly established as one of television’s best comedies, and then immediately does what seems impossible--it delivers its most thoroughly assured, hilarious and brilliantly written and acted episodes.

    The Emmy-winning show is still as funny as ever, if not moreso, but it also merits our attention for the care with which it is managing a long run on television.

    Veep is incomparable in comedy. Along with fellow regular Emmy-nominee "Louie," the HBO comedy has crafted a style so unique the series itself is entirely its own beast.

    The dialogue is, as always, ribald and inspired. [10 Apr 2015, p.59]

    OK, if you don’t find awkward funny, you won’t get Veep. But terrific as Louis-Dreyfus is at playing a woman seemingly incapable of embarrassment, her large supporting cast also helps establish the show’s bizarre rhythm.

Brilliant performances by Louis-Dreyfus (a very well deserved Emmy), Hale and Chlumsky (and all the other actors, seriously, it might be the best comedic assemble in history of dry comedy), literally bazillion jokes per minute (someone actually calculated jokes per minute ratio and S4 apparently has the most jokes per minute in any tv shows) and superb ridiculous storylines might make this season the best yet. Selina as president unveils mountains of timeless laughs, and the rapid social commentary, poking sexism and poignant political games just makes it an even better treat. A+ Expand

It depicts government as being a comedy of errors, and that might be the nicest current depiction in Pop Culture. I appreciated, too, the absurdity of following the Vice President. Since Selena Meyer is now the President in Season 4, it remains to be seen how that impacts the DNA of the show. Expand

    Good show, engaging and, at times, extremely funny. Though I find the sidekick characters far more humorous than JLD,she does have her momentsGood show, engaging and, at times, extremely funny. Though I find the sidekick characters far more humorous than JLD,she does have her moments and the show does stay on an even keel, humor wise, from episode to episode. I don't quite get the "10" vibe that so many critics put forth, it's quite worthy of the "sometimes funny" compliments it gets, but it does feel as though the show could be much more funny. Expand

Not to mention Dryfus is smoking hot. I also like the supporting characters as they continue to float around her and continue to do really anything BUT help. Smart and usually not laugh out loud funny, but quirky. Expand
