    Veep has always worked even when the writing/plot-lines have a seemed a little unrealistic but that's when the cast pulls through it and takes it to another level. This is one of those rare show's where literally every character has purpose and is most importantly **** hilarious ****

    Like many comedies that were once funny (ahem 99) , Veep is just repeating itself or trying to push the enveloppe so far it becomes ludicrous (the Jonah story line is not funny. it's embarrassing to think some writers came up with this kind of 3rd graders joke. Incest jokes, here we go! Next stop: zoophilia and necrophilia!).
    Apart from a few zingers here or there, it just helps you

    Apart from a few zingers here or there, it just helps you chuckle whiling your time away. Young American people call it cringe, don't they?

    A mindless sitcom, thinly disguised as cutting political satire. As far as mindless sitcoms go, it's okay. Not great. Not particularly memorable. But, watchable...

    I find it astonishing, though, that people think this show is - in any way - clever. The other user review said all the characters have a lot of depth. What? Who has depth? They've been doing the lesbian daughter joke

    They've been doing the lesbian daughter joke (which wasn't funny in the first place) forever. Now they've resorted to Selena's daughter in law describing her sex life to the presidential candidate in the middle of her office. Why? Because it's supposed to be funny.

    There are LOTS of lowest-common-denominator jokes throughout the series. It is actually cruder and stupider than a lot of Family Guy episodes.

    They just keep repeating the same "jokes", over and over.

    This is bad television... It has lots of swear words in it but it's about POLITICS! So, it must be worthy of a sophisticated adult audience!

    Thankfully, it is coming to an end.

    This season flanderizes some of its characters but in fairness politics themselves have become flanderized. A great first three episodes make it exciting to speculate who will win the presidential throne.

    I think that the shorter season hurts it overall, but this is still a decent send-off for Veep.

    What began as a pretty clever political parody morphed into the most fearless comedy on the tube. A continued concert of dizzyingly brilliant acting, writing and editing that truly seeks to affect how one perceives modern geopolitics.

    I’ve seen three episodes of the final season, and each is a pleasure. I didn’t always laugh out loud at Team Meyer’s various misadventure, though I did often enough—and I consistently found myself almost nodding along to its rhythm.

    Veep, in its last season, comes full circle, a final trip that's as predictable as it is nonetheless enjoyable.

    It gleefully wallows in its own world, suggesting nobody in Washington really knows what makes it tick. While Louis-Dreyfus is just as Emmy-worthy as ever, it’s Simons who rises to this season’s top.
