More on VEEP

I watched the rest of VEEP yesterday. I planned just to watch one episode, but it soon became a marathon.

Such biting satire!

Reasons to love VEEP:

  1. Julia Louis-Dreyfus is at her best. She deserved the Emmy.
  2. The dialog moves fast and furious.
  3. There’s something of a cathartic effect of watching people yell at the incompetent. Don’t you wish you could at work?
  4. While the show is heavy on testosterone, so’s the world and the show skewers that inane competition for alpha male position.
  5. Anna Chlumsky is marvelous. One of the best comediennes working today
  6. The show satirizes all politicians, all who scurry around for power. It’s something of an anti-West Wing.
