Veep

Veep

Former Senator Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) has accepted the call to serve as Vice President of the United States. The job is nothing like she imagined and everything she was warned about. 'Veep' follows Meyer and her staff as they attempt to make their mark and leave a lasting legacy, without getting tripped up in the day-to-day political games that define Washington.

Meyer's inner circle includes: her chief of staff Amy (Anna Chlumsky), longtime press spokesperson Mike McClintock (Matt Walsh), right hand and body man Gary (Tony Hale) and secretary Sue (Sufe Bradshaw) all of whom often do battle with Dan Egan (Reid Scott) an ambitious interloper and smug White House liaison Jonah (Tim Simons).

I'm not offended by language at all, but I still think this show suffers from an overabundance of vulgarity. I'd guess that 99% of the characters in the show swear on average of more than once per sentence. I think that's a conservative estimate. Some sentences are more swear words than anything else. I don't object to this for any moral reason. I think it just makes all the characters less believable and it becomes boring really fast. The vulgarity isn't contrasted to anything.

I love every character and moment of it.

@az25 I've watched seasons 1 and 2 now and it's not bad. I kinda like the characters. But I still don't get why this show would win so much Emmy's. I see a comparison somewhere between this and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, but that's like comparing Dr. Who with Battlestar Galactica...

@az25 I have to agree with you about Veep- it's very much akin to earlier seasons of the office with more vulgarity in the dialogue. As for comedies with strong starts, both Veep and Brooklyn Nine Nine come to mind for having some of the best openers out there currently. Veep gets the ball rolling with excellent political commentary and a snappiness that just isn't in many shows these days.

Not to mention, at 22 minutes a pop, you can churn and burn through an entire season in an afternoon- Veep lets you do that with ease.

@starspike @Baltimore This is normal with all TV comedies, I think. It takes 8-10 episodes for you to get used to the cast, and more importantly, comedy is so much harder to do really well than drama is, it requires timing, chemistry, succinct delivery, a bond between writer and actor that isn't quite necessary for a drama show. It takes a long time for actors in comedy, especially if they aren't classically trained, to figure out what the rhythm of the show is going to be.

I would recommend trying out a few more episodes if you have the time before giving up, although, imo, Veep started off in excellent fashion, so it might not be your kind of comedy. But, I recommend to all my friends, if you're going to start watching a half-hour comedy show, give it at least 8 episodes before giving up on it, because it's REALLY hard to get right before a cast has worked together for months and have gotten used to how they each respond to each other's little ticks and rhythm's.

@starspike I didn't really get into it either. Just not my cup of tea.

I'm two episodes in, but I'm not really impressed... Is that normal? And does this become a lot better?

@DRJ no me lo parece, por mi parte, ahí se queda la serie. Menuda decepción de midseason.
