The ride is so fun and the writing so sarcastically clever.
July 3, 2019
The writing and the delivery of the show's razor-sharp remarks remains impressive too, even if the storylines do cut dangerously close to the bone this time around.
May 24, 2019
Every single member of this cast could headline their own series and deservedly so. Now is the time to go back and binge the entire first six seasons of Veep before it goes out with one of the best final years in TV history.

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

They may as well rename the Best Lead Actress in a Comedy the Julia Louis-Dreyfus Award. She was stunning, and the writing on this series - led by showrunner David Mandel - was next-world amazing.
May 13, 2019
Over seven seasons, a real-life regime change, and a record-breaking number of Emmys for Louis-Dreyfus, Veep evolved into something different-harsher, bigger, and bleaker.
May 13, 2019
From the reckless, madcap nature of the pacing to the emptiness in all of the characters' fates, it was a fitting an end to a political satire.
May 13, 2019
By adapting through shifting social currents, and by fostering more raw malice than perhaps any other show on television, Veep has proven itself the only program capable of lampooning the otherwise comedy-proof Trump.
May 13, 2019
"Every nation gets the government it deserves." It's all your fault, Veep seems to suggest, with a disdain that'll continue to serve as a warning for future generations, just in case they feel the need to shake things up again.

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.
April 20, 2019
Veep is satire, parody, farce, pantomime and social commentary all swirled together to create this impossibly hilarious concoction.
April 8, 2019
Selina simply lives, breathes, such crassnesses: gloriously, more than she should, she actually voices them.
April 5, 2019
In real terms Veep should be showing its age. And yet in the execution it feels as sharp as it always did. Perhaps more so given the embarrassment of riches that Washington D.C. shovels in the show's direction every day.
April 5, 2019
They're all as revolting as they're real.
April 5, 2019
As in much of the best comedy, Veep operates by sly substitution. It promised a dick joke, a punchline about ineffectuality, a woman outside the party, uninvited. Instead, it gave the story of power's incapacity to see itself.
April 4, 2019
While monstrous Meyer remains the centre of its semi-fictional universe, Veep is also an ensemble workplace comedy and it was a joy to see the gang back together, trading razor-sharp quips.

April 4, 2019
This is masterful comedy, packed out with the darkest of zingers, its black heart buoyed only by the delighted embrace of its silly, clown-like brilliance.

A painful and hilarious x-ray of the most cruel of politics. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
April 3, 2019
A nonpartisan, ideology-free lampoon of politicians as hypocrites or buffoons can be tame and housebroken, but the edge and viciousness of the satire in Veep places it in a special category of political comedy.
April 2, 2019
It's the kind of show that makes you cringe as much as it makes you laugh, which, of course, is exactly what it wants you to do.
