The V.P decides to run for President. Trips to the early primary states are in order. VEEP proves real life and fiction are not far apart.
Considering this was made in 2014, the presidential debate sequences are amazing. One candidate who has never been in politics before, two minority candidates, a congressman who is so out of his league. Very funny in today's light.
Not nearly as good as seasons 1 and 2. Not serious enough to be drama, not funny enough to be comedy. I have a feeling that there were big changes on the writing staff. Portlandia keeps getting better and better, Veep has now lost my interest completely. Actually fell asleep watching it.
Veep is great although it seems to have taken a more serious tone the the first and second season. Not necessarily a bad thing but it seemed to me there were bigger laughs in the earlier seasons whereas this season took on a more dramatic tone. Four stars.
Because it's HBO and Julia Louis-Dreyfus has more freedom from network censors you catch the full glory of Selina Meyer. JLD has surpassed Jerry Seinfeld in comedic character genius.
