Trivia

During the 2013 EMMY awards show, both Tony Hale and Julia Louis-Dreyfus won awards for their performances. When they stood on stage together, as Louis-Dreyfus was speaking, Hale pretended to feed her lines, just as he does on the show, playing her obsequious personal assistant. See more »

Brilliant
23 April 2012 | by See all my reviews

Just saw the first episode of Veep and, if the rest of the series is as good as the opener, HBO has a brilliant series on its hands. Louis-Dreyfus delivers a performance reminiscent of her Elaine days; utilizing every ounce of her talent and pouring her entire body into each moment. It's easily her best work since Seinfeld, and that's no put down of her post Seinfeld work. It's a commentary on just how brilliant she was on that show.

The supporting cast is up to the task of keeping pace with a comic and actress as strong as their leading woman. Pleasantly surprising is Anna Chlumsky's funny and endearing chief of staff.

One episode may not be enough to judge a series on but, for episode one I vote 10 out of 10. Smart and laugh out loud funny is a hard combo to come across. I sure hope the rest of the show lives up to day one. I look forward to more.
