Critic Reviews for Veep: Season 5

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (12)

I'm not willing to say that Veep is as "funny as it's ever been" but it's still much funnier than most things on TV.

April 22, 2016 | Full Review…

Every year, it has seemed like Veep wouldn't be able to top itself, but the innovative and unrelenting comedy just kept doing it anyway, every year, without fail.

April 22, 2016 | Rating: A | Full Review…

Hilarious, as always, and unexpectedly, maybe an instructional guide to the current political landscape.

Top Critic

Led by Louis-Dreyfus at the height of her powers, this is a show that makes palate-cleansers of the bare-knuckled, real-life characters trying to gouge and kick their way into the Oval Office. But it's OK. Go ahead and laugh.

Top Critic

The familiar cast of gargoyles have retained an obsession with the rectal that reeks of the 18th century, but also of the production line: jokes manufactured with machine-tooled efficiency.

May 3, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Right now when politics seem to be filled with more despair than usual, laughing an incompetent president without fearing real world consequences offers a bit of catharsis.
