In my review of series one, I surmised that Veep was less hard-hitting than The Thick Of It, the UK series it was based on. So I was pleased to find that just as the UK series evolved & sharpened its satirical teeth as it went on, so has Veep. Series 2 gets more political & while the self-serving nature of some of the Vice-President's more pathologically career-oriented staff remains a source of comedy, it's now also shown as something more distasteful. This is due to members of her team alternating between supporting Selina to the hilt & schmoozing her political opponents in order to find a new job, depending on her current position in the ever-shifting political landscape. Conversely, Selina proves to be just as self-serving herself...

Like all Vice-Presidents real or imagined, Selina complains that she doesn't have an active enough role. But she quickly learns to be careful what she wishes for when the President gives her some measure of responsibility in Foreign Policy. This grants Iannucci greater scope to put her in awkward situations, such as an embarrassing encounter with the Finnish Prime Minister, deftly played by Sally Phillips ("Europe used to be my favourite continent," says Selina. "Now it's not even in the top five").

There are also events inspired by real-life news stories, like Selina overseeing a military operation & later having to choose an official photograph of the ops room - like the iconic one of Obama & his staff watching the killing of Bin Laden. Except the one which shows her best side also makes POTUS look "jowley"... And there's some fun moments between the characters too, like Selina forgetting on a lifestyle TV show that her daughter is vegetarian & coercing her to eat some chicken to cover up the mistake.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus reprises her brilliant comedy performance as Vice President Selina Meyer in the second series of Veep.

The series opens with the mid-terms, where Selina's appearances on the campaign trail comprise a series of `happy Nurembergs.' Although the party's results are poor, Selina's political star is in the ascendency. POTUS has relented to his Veep's wishes to be more involved in White House matters and given her a greater role in foreign policy. I am reminded of the dictum `be careful what you wish for' as issues relating to hostage taking and the Middle East threaten to dent Selina's popularity. The press have no qualms in firing exocets and prior to a visit to Europe label her `the Europhobic Khalesi from DC'. Public image is paramount and the episode where Allison Janney's journalist ambushes Selina in a supposed `puff piece' interview is a highlight of the series.

This series is even better than the first. The writing and plotting seem to have a slicker cadence and the ensemble cast appear completely at ease with their roles. The vitriolic profanities continue to be spat out thick and fast, and whether rapier thrust or sledgehammer smashed effortlessly hit their targets. Although technically on the same side of the political divide, both politicians and their aides continue to behave amorally, being prepared to say or do anything in order to gain an advantage. The reason that this brutal satire succeeds is that we are ready to accept the venal and duplicitous behaviour portrayed as a believable norm. We believe that politicians, and people associated with politics, are capable and willing to do anything in order to climb up the greasy pole. This series does nothing to dispel this belief.

Better than Season 1. Tighter scripts, less deliberate jokiness, the fun comes out of the situation (which is, I know, the definition of sitcom but not all writers seem to grasp this). JL-D is excellent throughout.

Basically, the thick of it for the US made by a good chunk of the UK team (plus a bit of direction from Chris Morris) - not quite as raw and punchy as our UK version but still very very funny at times.

This continues to be a superb series. The inventive swearing we know and love from The Thick If It but with a new set of great characters. Highly recommended.

Totally addicted --not possible but this series just gets better and better and is certainly one for our "re-watchable collection". The only downside is that I have to wait so long for the next series!
Another of the In group to be recommended to like thinking friends!

Totally entertaining. My family are all ages and all political stripes and we had so much fun....& were all laughing out loud. Series 2 is even better than series 1. What a pleasure. Julia L-D is top notch actress-comedienne.
