News & Interviews for Veep: Season 1
"Veep" might be even more hilarious if it didn't hit so uncomfortably close to the truth.
The good thing is the show is blessed with a fantastic cast, but we really hope they are given a chance to bite into meatier material. Iannucci certainly has a way with one-liners... but the goodwill from that will only last so long.
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.
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.
Veep is one of the more intelligent comedies on TV. It features a great cast and characters that are taken to the extreme, yet never come across as caricatures.
This series won't be for most. While it dabbles in a certain level of absurdity, it doesn't over-reach to try and grab viewers.
The Veep's repeated semi-casual query to her secretary, "Hey Sue, did the president call?", forever greeted with the blunt negative, will become both catchphrase and leitmotif for this next transatlantic winner.
With overlapping dialogue, and phenomenal chemistry, the writing feels completely natural and thus the jokes are inherently funny, rather than being set up and waiting for a punchline.
To say there's a wealth of possible material for this political comedy to exploit is an understatement, and with Louis-Dreyfus at the helm, and a stellar cast and razor-sharp writing backing her, nothing is safe.
Audience Reviews for Veep: Season 1
Nov 08, 2020Veep Season 1 is all Right but not yet in the Place it could be. Julia Louis Dreyfus is Amazing as well is Tony Hale. The Writing and Pace is all Right. I liked the Handheld Camerastyle which gives you at Times the Feeling as if your watching a Documentary the Political Setting is great as well it's Time for a Political Comedy. RATING: 3,6
Mar 06, 2020Excellent. So smart. So funny.
Oct 02, 2019A fast paced, but dull, unfunny, cliche and mean comedy with unlikable characters ruin the good style. This is filmed like the Office and I didn't like the Office. I really wanted to like this show, but I didn't laugh and the characters got on my nerves.
Sep 10, 2019It's definitely an acquired taste, but one that you can grow to appreciate once you get used to it. Stick it through with the first season of VEEP, because the flashes of witty push-the-envelope writing and an inspired return to the small screen from Julia Louis Dreyfus suggest that there's plenty of space for future growth in this political satire's campaign. Iroh's grade: C+
Aug 25, 2019Fantastic writing!!! Love love love Tony Hale
