Format: DVD
When I first heard that an American version of The Thick of It was being made, I had very mixed feelings. Popular sitcoms from one side of the Atlantic which are remade on the other have a pretty appalling track record - if you have a masochistic streak & a strong constitution for terrible TV, try searching on YouTube for 'Dad's Army US version'. But this one had three interesting names attached to it - Armando Iannucci, Seinfeld star Julia Louis-Dreyfus & HBO.

I expected it to be just like the original but with American accents, so when I saw there was no American version of Malcolm, I was initially disappointed. But given the significant differences in the UK & USA's political systems, I see now that this simply would not have worked. Instead they have have exported the style of The Thick Of It & transplanted it to the Office Of The Vice President Of The United States. This ties in perfectly with TTOI's rationale since the role of veep is intrinsically absurd. While the job title of Vice President suggests a similar amount of responsibility to, say, the Deputy Prime Minister, apparently the veeps' entire role is to be ready to stand in if the President dies. And that's pretty much it - stood within reach of the seat of power, the VP has very little power of their own. They are generally given some work to do but it's mostly just to keep them busy. And while the President claims the credit for the VP's successes, the VP naturally gets the blame for their failures.

I'm a fan of Julia Louis-Dreyfuss and had heard about her new hit series so wanted to see what it was like. Although she gives a great performance, I think the whole Armando Iannucci take on profanity and incompetency in government is getting a little long in the tooth. I had trouble taking to the supporting cast, and am getting tired of seeing government officials portrayed as idiots and nasties without any subtlety--if I wanted to see that, I could watch the news.

I'm a big fan of US political drama and also enjoy satire; add into the mix HBO and surely Veep couldn't miss.

Sadly, at least for me not the case. The story lines are far too contrived and the humour of the less intelligent variety. I suspect the show is stuck trying to be funny and topical at the same time and misses both targets, especially with the relatively short runtime.

Had this not been a HBO production I'd not have persevered through the first series, but at least I can be sure I'm not missing anything. Frankly, the only thing missing is the canned laughter.

By their own high standards this is a poor production. From anyone else this would be below average, but from HBO I'd say it's a very poor effort.

Veep is a wonderfully produced political satire that has me, quite literally, laughing out loud. Julia Louis-Dreyfus is as amazing as you'd expect and in fact the whole cast are top-notch. This is already one of my favourite comedy series to easily rank alongside such classics as Curb Your Enthusiasm and Arrested Development.

Well at the time of writing this I have only seen a couple of episodes but I am definitely liking this show. Having not watched "The Thick of It" I can't compare the shows but i did laugh at the situations and the way the characters behaved with one another. I also was partially shocked by the amount of foul language but I did find it funny rather than inappropriate. Definitely a show I would buy on DVD and watch again. The cast are very good, Julia Louis-Dreyfus is a brilliant actress. While not a fan of Seinfeld, I have seen her in various other things and always thought she was great. I love the fact that "Buster" from "Arrested Development (fantastic show) is also amongst the cast, as is "My Girl" herself, Anna Chulmsky (sp?)
I hear the show has already been picked up for a second season so I hope this has a decent run.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Alan Jones on 23 April 2014
Format: DVD
I was sceptical of the growing reputation of this series. With Armando Iannucci involved a high level of quality seemed guaranteed. It took me about 20 minutes to become comfortable with the speed of the dialogue, the quick fire profanities and to establish the various characters.

After the first episode I watched the rest of the series in two 'sittings'. As with The Thick Of It, despite the machinations and convoluted plotting, because of the excellence of the writing and acting I found myself developing an empathy with the characters, despite at times some comic-book stereotyping. Jonah Ryan, as the White House liaison to the Veep's office is Basil Fawlty incarnate in the level of his grotesqueness. There is not a hint of pretentiousness here.This series is a true classic of its genre. Highly recommended.

Slightly disappointed, funny and clever, the fun of us politics, but left me a little underwhelmed. The Thick of it much better.
