If you’re looking for a salve or an escape in your bingeable TV, look further than Veep. Don’t even think about hitting play. Get as far as you can from this show, a seven-season odyssey of human cruelty, pettiness, and political horror. You won’t find escapism in this tale of the United States’ first female vice-president – just the savage and brutally funny, the mean, the insane and the inane.
Starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Veep is a show with little-to-no faith in the political system, which sees a climate of backflipping, false promises, and nothing-speak as the structures of government working effectively.
