Yup I binged watched it loved every minute of it. Reminds me so much of House of Cards...except it's a hilarious comedy. JLD kills it every episode.

The Thick of It was a great UK show but what's even better is the movie based on that show called "In the Loop." Check it out although it may require multiple viewings; the jokes are pretty rapid-fire and you miss a lot of them initially.

Veep, as an American remake , is very well done and holds the spirit of the original quite well.

I think my favorite joke of the whole series is when they're at the tech firm with Cra'ig and Selina asks her "Smarch" to bring up the website meetmeyer.com (which it changes to meatmeyer.com), and Mike freaks out before anything even loads. It's so quick and subtle, but fits his character so well. Of course he has a mental directory of all the Selina Meyer porn sites

Timely news, then - Thick of It/In the Loop star (and current Doctor Who) Peter Capaldi to direct a couple of episodes of Veep, and he hints at guest-starring as Malcolm Tucker:

Veep a big winner at the Emmy's last night. Really cleaned up.
It wins outstanding comedy series and best writing for a comedy series.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus wins lead actress and Tony Hale wins supporting actor.
Veep is absolutely brilliant television. Well deserving winner.

Yep, with how brilliant season 4 was I figured they'd clean up. Nice to see Tony Hale finally get picked though, he's amazing

Yeah, whoever did the casting for this show did an awesome job, everyone fits their character perfectly. Jonah nails it.

Yeah gotta give it to Silicon Valley over Veep, only because there hasn't been anything like Silicon Valley before.

However, Veep ranks right up there for me. Probably top 3.

OT, I saw Gary Cole in a coffee shop down here the other day. Nobody noticed who he was except for me.

^A Mike Judge show and Gary Cole in the same post = Time to watch Office Space again!

So Episode 2 may have been the best Veep yet. I barely stoped laughing the entire time. Finding out Ben was getting Amy's "Nightcap?" texts was the perfect nightcap to the episode.

This weeks episode may be the weakest of the year..... in the their best year.

What an amazing year it is having.

That office at the end in the double basement looks identical to the one the West Wing uses in ... Season 1? for the Republican lawyer they hire.

The Steam Pipe Trunk Distribution Venue.

Roger Furlong's tirades this season have been outstanding. Mike's mustache took a real beating this week.
