    Collider: Veep’s humor is at its best when it comes out a place of desperation, and Season 6 is filled with it.

    Newsday: In TV terms, we call this a re-set, but in Veep terms, it’s genius. HBO offered three episodes for review, which seen together play like a movie–the funniest movie you will have seen all year, maybe next year, too.

    93 on Metacritic with 4 reviews.

    I was a little worried it wouldn’t be able to keep up the quality with her post presidency and 6 seasons in but it sounds like this will be one of its best years yet.

    I need Sam Richardson to come thru for that Emmy nomination, and by reading some of these reviews and the shows new focus, it may just happen.

    If there’s any other supporting Veep actor who needs a nomination, it’s Tim Simons. He’s such an underrated actor/character on this show and he deserves recognition.

    Does anyone else think that Veep can get three actors in supporting this year?

    No, Braigher and Burrell are on shaky territory but we have Stanfield, Henry, and Baldwin who are all threats. I would also look out for the Silicon Valley guys as that show is on the rise and Nanjiani has a lot of buzz right now from the Big Sick.

    I don’t see any reason for the SV supporting players to suddenly get in after years of getting snubbed and Middleditch only getting nominated for the first time last year. Clearly, the acting isn’t what is valued about that show to the voters.

    I actually don’t think that Baldwin is getting in. I think voters will have a difficult time voting for a non-regular in the supporting slot – just a hunch.

    The Atlanta supporting guys are definitely in the mix but neither were real standouts in comparison to the other and I am not sure that the love for Atlanta will really extend that far.

    MF managed to get three actors in at the height of its popularity and obviously Veep and MF are extremely different shows but Veep is rounding the corner on a possible third consecutive win – the main drawback is that the show has so many stand out performers it will be difficult for one to break through. But then again, Walsh managed to do it last year. I know it is a bit of a long shot but I have Hale, Walsh and Simons all getting in for now.

    Damn you’re right! Seems like forever ago that those categories were all clogged with MF supporting players. My how times have changed.

    I loved the premiere, but I tend to overhype shows I love when they first start their new season so I’m interested to see what everyone else thinks. Selina is seriously lower than ever and I think that’s going to be fun to watch. I hope Amy can somehow get more involved with the other characters or else she probably won’t get as much to do as Chlumsky deserves. Kevin Dunn has also been unappreciated as Ben, he was great tonight. I loved Clea DuVall too, I hope she has enough to do this year to maybe be competitive in supporting actress.

    Well, episode one is here, and Timothy Simons already has a Emmy tape. That burst out had me rolling. Also really good: Sarah Sutherland crying face.

    I think this episode is the one to settle ground for the rest of the season’s tone, but it felt very much like that: an introductory episode. Most of it didn’t feel organic, specially some of the enconters of the team. Even then, this episode was still funny as hell.

    Grade: B+
