The cast of Veep is so abject that it is one-dimensional. [Full review in Spanish]
March 21, 2019
[The] opening gave me hope that I was in for a fun final ride with this crew. But it was mostly downhill from there. There was a clear inability to capture the manic energy of the best episodes when Iannucci was in charge.
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 1, 2019
The final season of Veep returns with all cylinders, working overtime doling out caustic barbs.

What makes "Veep" masterful is how it understands true satire. In this seventh season the show brilliantly tears apart the very nature of campaigning.
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.

They're all as revolting as they're real.
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.

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.
March 28, 2019
There's still an undercurrent of realism to it all... but there's nothing on-the-nose about it.
March 29, 2019
[The cast is] in stellar form.
March 27, 2019
Moves past the cynicism which defines the series into deeper reprehension. As in previous seasons, the dialogue is brilliantly vicious. But now there is a well-worn sheen of exhaustion over the enthusiasm of going after the biggest job in the world.

March 29, 2019
These last Veep episodes feel like a respite from even thinking about our present reality. It's certainly funnier than reality.
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.
March 29, 2019
Veep is still as hilariously cutting as ever. Its performances are fantastic, its rhythm and density are unparalleled, and its sense of the absurd is still sharp.
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.

April 1, 2019
I feel like Selina is the victim of some version of a Get Out experiment, but there's a rich, tall, white man trapped inside her petite woman-body, begging to be set free.

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.
April 1, 2019
This is satire of the darkest order...
