Veep 5.2

John Slattery.

  • Less story-driven than opener.
  • Very funny, across the board: seems like every character got a chance to shine here.
  • And there are so many great characters now. Is this the largest cast we’ve ever had in a sitcom? (Does Soap beat it?)
  • Best characters? Richard cracks me up, as does Mike. And both were terrific here. Consistent laughter every time they appeared on screen.
  • Loving the two new (romantic) story arcs, too. Assuming they both continue past this episode. And I hope they do.
