Veep 3×04 ‘Clovis’: Flying Hitler

We learned a couple new things this week on Veep. Mike is too happy being married, Selina Meyer became a millionaire in her thirties, porn parodies are a sure sign of success, and Veep is having one heck of a third season. Clovis and Craig (pronounced Kray-eeg) made for great opposition for our beloved Veep […]

Veep 3×03 ‘Alicia’: Optimistic Warmonger with a soft spot for educated gays

Veep 2×10 ‘D.C.’: Going out with a bang

Selina Meyer, President of the United States? Could it really happen? If last last night’s season finale is to be believed, it’s a strong possibility. They always say, ‘save the best for last,’ and I would say Veep Season 2 did just that. There was so much going on in this episode that at times […]

Veep 2×09 ‘Running’: Those pesky glass doors

The penultimate episode of Veep, entitled ‘Running,’ worked very hard to set up the end game for this season. And while it did seem to lose the comedy in a few places, overall it was step above the last couple of episodes. The episode begins with Selina riding high after last week’s on-camera confession. The […]

Veep 2×08 ‘First Response’: When the awkwardness is almost unbearable

Veep 2×7 ‘Shutdown’: Taking out the trash

We got a break from Veep last week for HBO to premiere ‘Behind the Candelabra,’ so the VP tried to come back strong in this installment.

Veep 2×6 ‘Andrew’: Selina Mapist

In this week’s episode of Veep, entitled ‘Andrew,’ the crew is back in DC from their eventful trip to Helsinki, and we finally get to meet the Vice President’s ex-husband.
