Season 2: Funny, but yet still lacking that real sense of cynicism
23 June 2014 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

For me the second season of Veep continues in the same vein as the first, which will be good news for most but a rather mixed blessing for me. On one hand it remains funny and produces many good laughs in each episode, however on the other, it remains surprisingly gentle in content and tone. There is a reasonably good through-line to this season in terms of narrative and the plots are pretty good in terms of politics and maneuvering and from this point of view there is a lot to engage with; but the single issue remains – it really lacks teeth.

People say that Americans don't get satire and cynicism, and that this is why Iannucci's Veep is a little softer, however for me this logic doesn't play in a country with such great topical comedy shows and things like The Simpsons in the mainstream. So I'm not quite sure why it is the case, but the second season of Veep continues to lack a consistent edge. I say 'consistent' because this is not to say that it is never there, because there are plenty of barbed moments and lines, but these are parts of the show rather than the whole tone of the show. Instead the tone of the show is more of a gentle, although foul-mouthed, comedy with regular sight-gags and misunderstandings. It still works and I still enjoy it, but it is difficult not to want more from Iannucci in the context of what else he has done.

The cast continue to do well and of course Louis-Dreyfus is very strong in the lead. The supporting cast continue to do well but the standouts for me were Cole, Dunn and Bakkedahl – all of whom had smaller roles but seemed to inject foul-mouthed energy and laughs when they do. Walsh, Scott, Hale and Chulumsky all continue to do well, but the smaller roles seem to be able to be wilder in content. Season 2 continues to be a very enjoyable political sitcom with swearing that HBO permits. I'll continue t enjoy it if the third season does more of the same, but I'll also be hoping that it can find its dark cynicism and have a lot more bite in the material then these seasons have.
