    This is exactly how I felt except I did watch the whole thing. :thumbsdown:

    I didn't like it either. In addition to not being funny, and not very realistic, I found the shaky camera thing bothersome. That is one trend that I wish would go away.

    Anna Chlumsky is not credited as a cast member in IMDB section on Veep. Is she just a one time character?

    No, according to the show's credits she's #2 in the cast.

    IMDB is great, but far from perfect.

    Finally someone mentions the Emperor has no clothes.

    I agree 1000%. This show is awful.

    The Office can die now; this is an excellent successor/replacement.

    It looks like the show thinks it's funnier/smarter than it actually is. I will give it a chance for 1-2 more episodes.

    I wonder if Selina knows whether or not the President has a big stick.

    I found it a little awkward but I'm not counting it out yet. I really like JLD and Chlumsky, especially JLD. For that reason alone I will continue watching for now.

    I'm surprised so many here didn't care for it. I thought is was fantastic (and I'm not a Julia fan). I also watched the second ep and I'm 100% in. This is going to be great fun.

    My only complaint is that it seems there won't be any nudity. I like nudity!

    To me it feels like it's trying to be clever, and coming oh so close, but just not quite making it.

    There are no laugh out loud moments, but there are some weak smiles. It has potential, but it's not hitting on all cylinders yet.

    I assume you have just posted a spoiler about episode 2. I have not watched that yet. So thanks. :thumbsdown:
