Season 1 episodes (8)

1 Fundraiser
In the series premiere, Vice President Selina Meyer and her staff are still finding their footing in Washington, D.C. Selina decides to make the Clean Jobs Commission a pet project, but a series of missteps cause her staff to work damage control.
2 Frozen Yoghurt
The Veep's office is revived by good news that her task force is likely to be green lit. With the President (conveniently) out of the country, Selina looks to make headway on filibuster reform and meeting with some 'normal' people.
3 Catherine
Faced with a trumped-up story of a rift between the Veep and the First Lady, Selina quells accusations that everything is about her--even though it is. Gary selects candidates for the VP dog, though Selina's daughter Catherine gets final say.
4 Chung
Dan and Amy attend a book launch for Gov. Danny Chung, a charismatic Asian-American war hero, who Selina worries could be a political threat. Meanwhile, Selina preps with Mike for a 'Meet the Press' interview.
5 Nicknames
Selina becomes obsessed with the (many) unflattering nicknames given to her by bloggers, and after a snub, assigns Dan to get White House intel from Jonah. Later, Dan's political maneuvering puts the fate of the Clean Jobs bill on the line.
6 Baseball
Selina attends a healthy-eating event at Camden Yards with some grumpy fast-food executives, where she also confides a secret to Amy. Mike holds a press briefing for some local news pals. Amy and Dan are forced to entertain elementary-school children.
7 Full Disclosure
With the Veep and her staff taking flack over a pregnancy rumor and the firing of a Secret Service agent, Selina orders a 'partial' full disclosure of all office correspondence and threatens to fire a key staffer.
8 Tears
Season One Finale. Selina travels to Ohio to support a gubernatorial candidate who no longer wants her endorsement; the Clean Jobs bill comes back to haunt Dan; Mike and Amy open the floodgates after they play up Selina's tears.

This show is inanely good, from beginning to end. With Veep, Julia Louis-Dreyfus has landed herself as one of my favorite actresses. She not only shows her honed comedic timing here, she also oscillates between aloof to precise, terrifying (knowingly and inadvertently), and never misses a beat. I don't care too much for politics, but I was a fan of "The Thick of It", so decided to give this a try. So glad I did - it's now one of my favorite shows. Also - the ending was TOO perfect.

This the king (make that queen) of all adult comedies. Curb Your Enthusiasm took the Seinfeld formula to a more daring level, and Veep raises the bar seemingly beyond reach. I can't imagine a more outrageously entertaining show can arise from the nourishing vine of memorable comedy that resulted from the collaboration of Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David. If you've never seen Veep, watch one episode. Any episode. You'll be hooked!

This is funniest TV show currently on. The dialog and characters are just superb. Like Arrested Development, a lot of the best lines are underplayed. Like Scrubs, you get the feeling that comedy is a truer representation of its subject than a drama. And like The West Wing, it's set in Washington and is full of cursing and genital jokes.
