Veep

Critics Consensus

Veep shows no signs of slowing down in its fourth season, thanks to sharp, funny, rapid-fire dialogue between POTUS and her hilariously incompetent staff.

Tv Season Info

A four-time Emmy nominee for Outstanding Comedy Series, Season 4 finally won the big prize, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus made it four-for-four with another statuette for Outstanding Lead Actress as Selina Meyer, who opens the season with her first big speech since becoming president before a joint session of Congress. Of course, just because she's the most powerful person on the planet doesn't mean her staff is more capable now than before her previous boss stepped down, as Amy (Anna Chlumsky), Ben (Kevin Dunn), Gary (Tony Hale), Dan (Reid Scott), Mike (Matt Walsh), Sue (Sufe Bradshaw) and Kent (Gary Cole) do their best not to sabotage her Oval Office honeymoon. And on top of freeing an American reporter jailed in Iran, dealing with campaign chaos and finding a scapegoat for a major data-breach scandal, there's still the small matter of actually winning an election. Also appearing are Hugh Laurie, Timothy C. Simons, Sam Richardson, Patton Oswalt, Sarah Sutherland and Diedrich Bader.

Critic Reviews for Veep Season 4

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (15)

Veep is more cynical than ever-the show portrays her new position as so precarious that she is mostly as ineffective as commander-in-chief as she was as VP.

There's simply nothing sharper or funnier on television - something that's particularly true this year, as Julia Louis-Dreyfus's grinning Selina Meyer has somehow stumbled her way into the Oval Office.

These characters don't inhabit a great system that happens to be full of terrible people. They inhabit a system that provides perverse incentives that perpetuate dysfunction. It's a braver way to cut into political culture.

(Julia Louis-Dreyfus) is crafting one of the best comedy performances in the history of TV here. On the current best comedy on TV.

Even in its fourth season, "Veep" continues to push boundaries and excel in topical content big and small.

Top Critic

It remains one of the smartest deadpan comedies on TV.

Apr 7, 2015 | Full Review…

Thankfully, while the show is populated almost entirely by grotesques, they are drawn (and played) with detail and shade...

If Seinfeld represented 90s America in a show about nothing, Veep encapsulates the age of political nothing, from the do-nothing congress to the nothing-can-get-quite-done presidency.

Jun 4, 2018 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

We all dream of telling off our cartoonish superiors in real life, but Amy (who's never been the one to hold her tongue, no matter how far up the chain of command you are) actually does it. Now I anxiously await her next move.

Sep 1, 2017 | Full Review…

So much of the comedy in previous series has come from her constantly thwarted ambitions. Now she's got where she wanted - can they keep up the funny? It was clear from episode one that they can.

Audience Reviews for Veep: Season 4

  • Jul 22, 2018
    Keeps getting stronger as the seasons go on.
  • Jul 12, 2017
    So funny and very clever. Perfect satire, well acted throughout.
  • Jun 04, 2017
    For Meyers' first full-season as president, Veep hardly changes its format and we should probably all be grateful for that.
  • May 07, 2016
    Hilarious. Most laugh out loud series currently running anywhere!
  • Sep 13, 2015
    Gets better with each season

    I so love this series....how in the hell does this have 79% from the audience? Julia Louis-Dreyfuss is hotter and funnier than she was in Seinfeld, you have the the Office Space collection, Buster from Arrested...everybody is nails in this show, I can't get enough.

    Politics is a joke, but if you have to swear this much to get a laugh, then your writing is *!#$%@!&ing bad. I mean its really &^*((()$$#@!!ing awful.

    Unfortunately i have to disagree with the critics here - the writing on Veep season 4 is definitely much weaker than previous seasons. The joy of the show has always been the dialogue - the quick repartee, the insane elaborate insults and quickfire cursing. After 6 shows of the season, I must say the dialogue is mostly uninspired and somewhat plodding - you keep waiting for punches that never happen. Though the show is still generally amusing, it seems to have lost most of its initial verve and inspiration, and is morphing into just another sitcom with 'zany' characters.

    A definite must see.
