'Veep' - 'Fundraiser': Plastics!
What did everybody think of HBO's new political satire?

What did everybody think of Julia Louis-Dreyfus as V-POTUS?

However, in HBO's "Veep" it is one frigging F-bomb after another except when spelled with that S-bomb word for manure. It got really tiring really fast.
I loved Julia Louis-Dreyfus in "Seinfeld" and the few episodes I watched of "The New Adventures of Old Christine" she was funny but not as much as in her Elaine Benes run.
So, I flipped over to HBO last night to see her in "Veep." Not one laugh, campers. Not one.
I went through the comments following Sepinwall's HITFIX blog and for the most part those commenting loved it.
So, it makes me ask, "What is wrong... with all these folks?"
I missed it. I was watching Celebrity Apprentice. lol. We do have HBO so I am sure that it will be played 100’s of times during the week.
I didn't know robots like Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.
Do robots dream electric dreams of DW-S?
Hey, ray, that's not that Debbie 'The Dem Skank!' Wasserman-Schultz's photo at Bender's bedside... that's me, the hot Fringe Agent Olivia Dunham, Bendy's one true love!
Really, Olivia, you are so... out of the loop!
Sorry, Liv, but if I can love the one I love... I love the one I'm with!
And bedside photo aside, Bendy's with me... more than you!
Just keep it up, Fauxlivia... and I'll be pumping you full of lead!
Bring it on... Liv!
Bang... Bang... There problem solve, as Bendy likes experience best of all and I have better than 80 years of it!
Well, I can't argue with Betty... especially when she packing her 45!
Okay, thanks for clearing that up.
Now, about the electric dreams part. I've always wondered if the, er, climax causes any short circuits?
Gadzooks! To be honest... last night I dreamed about getting one of those new I-Pooooooooooooooooooood... phones--

I just watched the first three minutes and can unequivocally state that Veep is a rip-off of the BBC series The Thick of It and the related feature film In The Loop.
It’s even got that one actress from In The Loop in it! (Anna Chlumsky, I had to look her up on IMDB - and she seems to play the exact same part.) They also copied the wobbly camera and cut style to a “t”.
Anyway, since it’s a blatant rip-off of the above mentioned series, a lot of swearing was to be expected.
