Trivia

In an episode of Seinfeld (The Watch), Elaine (played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus) is asked by Joe Davola if he knows her from somewhere and she answers with a joke: that he probably recognizes her because her face is sculptured on Mount Rushmore, alongside the U.S. presidents, instead of Roosevelt's face. The poster for the fourth season of Veep, shows the face of Selina Meyer (who's also played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus), sculptered on Mount Rushmore, but it appears instead of Jefferson's face.

Reopened my account just to score the show high.
24 April 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Why are people voting on a show before it's aired? There is no way this deserves a 4.9; however, I'm sure it will go up as actual viewers chime in. I've seen the first episode and I'm hooked already.

Short and sweet: Louis-Dreyfus is best at characters with an edge. She had me laughing out loud and re-watching line deliveries ("Selena. Hi. I'm melting, I'm melting."). The entire cast is great. Tony Hale does what he does best -- meek, a little dim -- but it works great. Anna Chlumsky holds her own next to Dreyfus. The writing snappy and natural. The direction slick.

I hope this show sticks around for a bit!
