Hale’s obvious submission. Very good.June 12, 2017 at 3:09 am #1202118126
Absolutely loving this season. Another great episode although it did leave me yearning for an actual showdown between Gary and Selina. Tony Hale is really earning his inevitable nomination (and possible win) this year- he’s had at least 3 tapes that I would consider brilliant potential submissions. Dreyfus was also fantastic as ever.

It will be a joyous night when ‘Veep’ silences the haters and wins a third consecutive trophy for best comedy series.June 12, 2017 at 2:55 pm #1202118726

“Haters” is grade-school terminology. “Haters” won’t stop doing shit, especially if “Veep” wins a third undeserved consecutive Emmy in Comedy Series for this nonsense. Being the minority viewpoint doesn’t change that viewpoint at all. It never has and it never will.June 12, 2017 at 7:21 pm #1202119060
Some people are so in love with their own opinions they like their own posts! I do admire that kind of cockiness.
Speaking as someone who’s usually in the minority in most of my opinions around this site: it doesn’t matter. This has been a weak season for comedy series in general. Any show that wins will make a portion of the crowd angry.
I have said this before, and I’ll said it again at the risk of being called “condescending!” by some folks who are exactly that more often than not: this season for Veep is mostly for fans. It takes characters we fans love to new places, and I can’t see how regular viewers who already had plenty of reservations about Veep would suddenly start loving it. So the hating (for lack of a better word!) is predictable and natural. I say this even though I think the wit and political commentary has been taken to new, bolder levels this season.
If it came to win a third Emmy, and people are upset, it’s not Veep’s fault. The show is what it is. It should not and it does not respond to award wins when deciding which paths to take next.June 13, 2017 at 6:04 am #1202119477
