You've probably seen a million and one posters on the subway advertising the show VEEP. Initially, I thought it was going to be a serious show on politics but it turns out that it was about what's funny about politics. It is nice surprise to see Julia Louis Dreyfus in the role of vice president of the United States in the show. They picked the right person for the show not only because she looks the part but she's funny without being to over the top. Even if you don't like politics, you'll like the show because it is well-written and gives you some sort of insight as to what happens in the White House. It may be real or serious but I'm sure it is based on real life. This is the funniest show I've seen in a long time and truly deserves a 4 star rating. If you don't have HBO, VEEP is your new reason to get it.
