Critic Reviews for Veep Season 7

All Critics (59) | Top Critics (25)

And yet, while it may not be quite as insightful or scathing as it once was, "Veep" is still one of the best shows on TV, largely because it has arguably the best ensemble, all of whom return at the top of their game.

Dec 11, 2019 | Full Review…

For all that this finale keeps getting described as dark, I was struck by how insanely optimistic that view of American politics really is.

Top Critic

Everyone is either a fool, a knave or a monster in HBO's hilariously scabrous political satire starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus. After seven seasons, Veep ends its run with its sharp teeth fully intact.

This is satire of the darkest order...

Apr 1, 2019 | Full Review…

At this point in the show's run and our democracy's wobbles, Veep doesn't simply evoke real life. Real life inevitably evokes Veep.

Mar 29, 2019 | Full Review…

A joyful, wild, hilarious, insane -- and darker -- romp through the debasement of running for political office, as only "Veep" could imagine.

Top Critic

Veep often felt like the anti-West Wing, as Iannucci replaced Aaron Sorkin's reverential treatment and ideological haggling of Washington politics, with a bullying contest of utmost vulgarity which seemed symptomatic of the times.

Jul 23, 2020 | Full Review…

This is the way comedy is supposed to be.

Dec 11, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Veep should be remembered as one of the best ensemble casts ever, with Louis-Dreyfus surrounded by an absolute murderer's row of comedic talent.

Dec 11, 2019 | Full Review…

The often brilliant comedy ended its seven-season run with an episode that highlighted the best of its brutality.

Dec 11, 2019 | Full Review…

The writing continues to be crisp, the humor remains potent, and a recovering Julia Louis-Dreyfus hasn't missed a beat.

Dec 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Landing every laugh with precision, style and grace, [Julia Louis-Dreyfus] isn't just the funniest woman working on television today. She's one of the funniest of all time.

Audience Reviews for Veep: Season 7

  • Jun 12, 2020
    I'm a huge Veep fan. So much so that I've watched the first 5 seasons twice. But the final season was absolutely terrible. And season 6 wasn't that great either - but at least it was still somewhat intriguing. The only explanation I can think of as to why so many are claiming season 7 was great is because we've all fallen in love with Veep over season 1-5 and some of us have lost all objectivity. I actually agree with the part of the RT critic consensus that reads this season is "Brash and bonkers as ever, Veep bows out with an unapologetically absurd final season..." the key words being: brash, bonkers and unapologetically absurd. The problem is these adjectives aren't necessarily a good thing. Part of what made Veep so magnificent is that it was able to provide a very plausible, realistic and extremely authentic feeling government and political fantasy world while injecting that world with absurdly audacious drama and genius comedy. But season 7 threw out all of the plausibility and just went with the absurd. The jokes were repetitive and way over the top in a low brow humor sort of way. The shock value of each joke diminished with every attempt because it felt like it was simply trying to top the absurdity of the last one. But after a while your senses simply become numb to the same formula. The drama unfolded in a way that killed any remaining sense of illusion that this political world could actually exist in real life. I can only compare this sort of series degradation to the Hangover movies. The first Hangover was genius. The sequels ran out of genius so their only option was to just be as absurd as humanly possible. It's a very cheap way to go but I guess it makes financial sense. Give the people what they want - right? Well in trying to appease the masses, Veep neglected its subset of fans that were genuinely invested intellectually in the Veep world for all these years and who actually appreciated the slow-burn of its political intrigue. We didn't want Family Guy. We didn't want Hangover 2. You let us down.

    The final season went out with a bang. This is how you take your final bow. Bravo!!!

    As Outrageous and honest as ever, Ianucci signs Veep off in fitting fashion, with his trademark acid wit, raunchy humour and stone-cold satire ringing true —— along with Julia Louis Dreyfus, Chlumsky and Hale, who deliver a spellbinding swansong that will leave you in awe. Goodbye Selina... it's been political! Iroh's grade: A

    Amazing cast, amazing talent, all in all it was a fantastic show.
  • Nov 03, 2019
    How charmed a career has Julia Louis-Dreyfus had. She rolls from arguably the greatest sitcom of all time into another fantastic show. I was a big fan of the BBC show "The Thick of It" (run out and watch it if you haven't seen it) but Veep has actually managed to out snark that landmark TV show. Roger Furlong hilarious portrayed by Dan Bakkedahl is one of the most hilariously vicious characters ever dreamed up and Selina Meyer is not far behind. I'm imagining Iannucci's depiction is not that far off from the real Capitol Hill minus the wit.

    Never wanted to like the show but just couldn't help it. Great casting, great writing...It was great.

    JLD is the best actress on TV (comedy), no contest! Great Veep finally.
  • Jul 30, 2019
    Veep foi a razão, até agora, de não morrer em 2019. Enquanto a maioria das séries da HBO foi perdendo qualidade nesse ano veep assoprou um ar fresco e muitas gargalhadas.
  • Jul 15, 2019
    Sezonul final si mai ales ultimul episod sunt incredibile
  • Jul 08, 2019
    Overratted - If you are not a hard core partisan liberal you can skip this one - its nothing but smug liberalism and christian/conservative bashing. The show also probably has the most racism in it that I have seen in modern TV era.
