    I just haven’t been able to get into this season, which is really disappointing because this show was so amazing in its peak.

    This season is a substantial improvement over its 6th. But, likely due to the series no longer revolving around the daily activities of DC and The White House, the humor and storytelling isn’t the same. Veep peaked in season 5, which felt like a natural series finale.

    I liked this season a lot. I found the humor to be different but funny. While not everything is working, when it works its great.

    I really liked Discovery Weekend and Oslo. They are both my favorite episodes of the season.

    Sally Phillips was the highlight here, and hopefully she finally nabs the Emmy nomination that’s eluded her all these years. Otherwise, this was pretty useless as an episode overall and baffling as a penultimate. Too rushed as well, even for an extended length episode. However they choose to end this series remains to be seen, but I’m not very optimistic about it based on what’s been presented so far.

    The show peaked in seasons 4 and 5, but this season has been a mess. Nothing works for me. It seems that Mandel’s idea was to make everything gradually more and more cynical and less and less funny:p Remember how hilarious Minna always was? Not a single laughter this time.

    And what’s worse, no one from the main cast has gotten a great material, not even JLD. As a huge fan of Chlumsky, I will be so sad to see her not winning for this role, but girl does not even deserve a nomination this year.

    At this point I want Emmys to snub it across the board.

    Hale is the biggest victim of this season’s writing.

    Hale is the biggest victim of this season’s writing.

    The biggest grievance of mine is how they’ve completely ruined Amy’s character. It feels like her entire personality has changed.

    Chlumskly was really good in the first half of the season, if only she had two or three more powerful scenes in a single episode, i’d predict her to win. My favorite scene of hers was outside the abortion clinic reprimanding the filthy protesters.

    I’m a fan but I try to stay impartial. I think this season should already had a WOW episode like “Alicia”, “Convention” and “Mother” (episodes of beginning of season). I agree this season could have been better. It gets the feeling that before VEEP could do more with less.  But if you did not like  episodes 1, 5 and 6 you do not like VEEP.  Because these were classic episodes of VEEP.

    I actually liked this episode. It was fun to see Minna one last time (maybe) and all the interactions surrounding Catherine and Marjorie’s wedding were very funny to me.

    This season is pretty unremarkable in just about every single way. This show deserves a better send-off, honestly. Unless the finale is an absolute knockout, I wouldn’t predict it to win a single Emmy, and I’m someone that felt JLD deserved each win.

    My biggest problem with how this season’s pace is going is that the characters don’t have any time to react to anything. The best comedy in Veep doesn’t happen with how things happen. Sure, the events are funny, but ALL of the best and most memorable moments come with how the characters REACT to the situations. For example, my personal favorite episode, Mother, is really well-regarded because of how it lets Selina, Gary, and Catherine react to everything. Selina pulling the plug on her mother and losing the popular vote isn’t actually very funny, but it’s the aftermath that make it such a phenomenal episode, with Louis-Dreyfus, Hale, and Sutherland all knocking it out of the park with their reactions. With how fast this season is going, the writers have to cram all of the events with no reaction time, so the magic of Veep is lost.

    On a more positive note, I was thrilled to see that Sutherland finally had something to do this episode. She’s always been the unsung hero of the show, and her performance during her breakdown scene was just another shining moment in the wonderful disaster that is Catherine Meyer. She’ll never get nominated in a million years, but she entirely deserves it.

    Hmm, I really liked this one. Sally Phillips is always a standout and she was excellent here. I’d absolutely love to see her land an overdue Guest Actress nomination. Sarah Sutherland was great, too. In a longer version of this season, I wish they would’ve spent more time on Selina as a war criminal. When Minna reports Selina to Interpol, I really though Mandel & co. were setting up the endgame for the series finale, a fitting and surprising one at that, but it wrapped too fast and a little too neatly for me. Nevertheless, Julia was great, particularly in her speech about Tibet. I know they’ve gone to the dissonance well many times, but she always sells it and this time in particular has a certain gravitas as we’ve seen Tibet serve as her most shining achievement across the past three seasons.

    I’m a bit behind but “Super Tuesday” was great. Some hilarious lines and a great plot that felt at last like we were moving towards a finish line.
