...ruefully amused and regularly amusing...

It's too easy, too much like a series of safe sketches that play to all the stereotypes everyone in politics claims describe the other side.

Some amusing lines, but otherwise a disappointing misfire.

The supporting actors add their own nice touches, making Veep a well-acted comedy that remains in search of a heart, even a tin one.

Ruling this particular office space is veteran comic actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Vice President Selina Meyer, who is firing on all of her Emmy-winning cylinders.

There's nothing weak about Veep, though. The really good news is that it gets even better.

The result is overly broad and narrow at the same time.
