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 »

User Reviews

excellent
10 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Like the rest of Ianucci's work, this is a fantastic political satire. The reflexive self-serving sycophancy, the arbitrary nature of power, the automatic deferral to the hidden powers behind the throne, the elevation of random dross above real issues (brilliantly lampooned in the pilot when the use of cornstarch forks in the White House becomes a stumbling block to setting up a clean jobs task force) are skillfully portrayed, showing how the dysfunction of the modern arena (especially the media's eye, usually passive but, as in the second episode, sometimes accompanied by a mouthful of vicious teeth) prevents the exercise of power for actual governmental function. None of the characters are perfectly likable, though all are well-played, but somehow the ensemble is endearing. Watch this if you want to see a sharp commentary on the drunken carousel that is politics.
