Last night. It is an American version of The Thick of It, with all the bungles, swearing, and incompetence. And I thought they made the switch across the pond seem seamless. And, it is just going to get even better. A lot of people were probably scratching their heads. They are not familiar with these In the Loop/The Thick of It guys. It will grow on folks, and should prob be a cult-y sort of hit for HBO.
Mark my words, most of the lefty political blogs that are bitching about Veep now, will be posting scenes and quips from it themselves in a few months from now.
I had nothing to fear, after all. Veep is going to be one of my all-time faves. (And Sorkin's new show, The Newsroom, happening in June, looks dynamite, too. HBO are Kings. But when do we get the third season of Treme?)
