    It’s still laugh-out-loud funny, the best comedy on TV. One episode will have her monitoring a free election in a former Soviet republic. The irony just drips. And all you can say about Louis-Dreyfus is that six isn’t too many.

    The show's sixth season, debuting April 16, doesn't take place within the corridors of power at all. It's about the disempowerment of a woman politician who believed she was going to cement her legacy by winning the election, and it's one of the most daring, and accidentally relevant, narrative turns the show has taken.

    In TV terms, we call this a re-set, but in Veep terms, it’s genius. HBO offered three episodes for review, which seen together play like a movie--the funniest movie you will have seen all year, maybe next year, too.

    While there are far too few Veep episodes each season, the ones that begin this, the sixth, are jewels to treasure. Unimpeachable, Veep remains the best comedy on television. Now, more than ever.

    Mandel hasn’t squandered any of his comedy capital; he keeps the barbs flying and the crushing disappointment looming closely enough to maintain the momentum in his second term.

    The results through three episodes are creatively enthralling, purposefully offbeat, and, as always, tied together by ferocious profanity.

    Stripping these characters of whatever power they previously had and scattering them to the winds forces everyone into their smallest, meanest selves--which frankly becomes hard to watch, and not in Veep’s usual “cringe because it’s so real” kind of way.

I double dare you. Freaking political correctness is even double standard on a HBO show too, shame on y'all writers producers on the show. Expand
