Having become president after her predecessor stepped down, it remains to be seen whether her term will outlast that of America’s shortest-serving president, William Henry Harrison. With the stakes for Selina and her team higher than ever before, she must still run for election, and they will grapple with how to make her seem “presidential”.
Continuing where season two left off we now get to see VP Meyer take the reigns as President. It’s definitely an interesting step to take seeing as the show is called “Veep” but I quickly pushed that aside because I genuinely wanted to see how this all played out. The story this season is awesomely interesting and has so many great moments. The impressive thing about it is that it manages to take us on an extremely eventful and hilarious journey through the beginning of The President’s first term and does it in a way that doesn’t seem rushed given the season only has 10 episodes. Did this season top the previous ones? Easily. If you haven’t seen this show at all it reminds me a lot of House Of Cards in certain aspects with a good helping of The Office thrown in. That in itself makes for a must watch. One of the best things is that you can pretty much jump right in without watching the previous seasons and pretty much catch up with what’s going on within 10 to 15 minutes of the season starting. The cast works so good together and with the likes of Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Tony Hale, Kevin Dunn, Diedrich Bader, Anna Chlumsky, Patton Oswalt, Matt Walsh, Gary Cole and a surprise appearance by Hugh Laurie it’s really easy to see why this show is such a hit and continues to give us an excellent political comedy. 9/10
Deleted Scenes – Between the 2 discs we get around 16 minutes of scenes that are actually really good and entertaining to watch.
