As midterm elections loom, Vice President Meyer is scoring higher ratings than the President in several popularity polls, which she hopes will boost her influence and help her curry favor with the chief executive. But despite her best intentions, even the most banal actions can set off unexpected and often disastrous consequences. Her staff is close at hand with a laugh-out-loud combination of personal problems and government-insider antics.

Juvenile. Every character has to use the F-word at least twice in every sentence. Frantic, rapid-fire speech and activity.

I really enjoyed this and I didn't think I would. I'm going to have to get the other seasons too now. What I think is most interesting is how REALISTIC this show is, even though it is supposed to be satire/parody. But every elected official I have ever met is similar to Selina Meyer. I think this show is closer to how government works than West Wing ever was.

How all this talent could produce such a disappointing mediocre waste of time is a mystery.

Not quite as brilliant as season 1 but infinitely more brilliant than any other comedy. Some smart Brits showing how comedy can be done. No sitcommunism here. >>>>> Comedians are so intelligent and (funny) yet almost all venues except stand-up are severely stunted. Not so with Veep. Comedy’s not hard, just harder than anything else. Of course just-jokes are the easiest. Well, it’s a start...

Not as fresh as Season 1, it still has it's moments with Dreyfus as the "not-as-clever-as-she-thinks" Vice President Selina Meyer. She has her usual syncophants around her who are ready to jump ship at latest scandal. A good parody (or is it?) of the democratic politics in America (or any country really). Very enjoyable.
