    Finally got around to watching most recent episode. This season continues to kick butt.

    Seems to me that the presidential aide guy (the tall kid - keep forgetting his name) is different this season - I'm not as annoyed by him for some reason.

    Jonah.

    I decided to save my eps for the summer when I am always looking for something to watch. I visit here to see if it is still razor sharp. Spoilers never bothered me.

    The show is definitely worthy of rewinding and a second viewing.
    The web is full of articles with the one-liners, but people seem to remember the profane ones. There are many many zingers in each episode.

    This show must have one of the highest f-bomb/minute ratios on tv, definitely for the shows I watch. They crack me up.

    I was wondering that too. I seem to remember them saying they were in with the President. I looked around and didn't see anyone that stood out as being the President.

    Was there an especially jowly man in the sit room?

    I thought Selina was really going to pop Jonah when she told him to get off the plane. JLD did a good job with the anger portrayal.

    the bombing of finland was funny and the boob thing super awkward. i'm sure the wife has to know he's like that and i was shocked there wasnt an orgy or something in a back room

    what is command A anyway?

    i like the VPs secretary at home at 2 in the afternoon in bed. i guess no VP, no job to do lol. if only. the bagman translation was a classic.

    She was syncing her schedule to the VP's in Finland, not blowing off work.

    Loved the Finland episode. A friend of mine played a secret service agent standing in the background.

    25 f-bombs in the 5/19 episode "Andrew". The episode ran 29 minutes. 0.86 f-bombs/minute.

    I was saving the eps because the summer pickings look slim for me. But I could not help myself one night recently when I was sick and watched a few. I can't believe this show does not get more press. JLD is great! Love love love this show.

    So, just finished watching season 1 of VEEP. I thought it was OK...uneven, but many funny moments and zingers thrown in. Nobody on the show is likeable though.

    So how was season 2?

    IMO, Season Two has been better than Season One.

    Agreed. I was only slightly into season one. I almost didn't watch S2, but it was on the DVR and I had nothing else, so I gave it a shot. It's terrific.

    You know, I never thought about it, but you are absolutely correct. No one is likeable on this show. At all.
    So far, Amy has not done anything to offend me. And though unlikeable, I do enjoy Sue as the guard dog.

    None are truly like able (although I kinda like the Veep) but most of them are not unlikable either. They just are.
