Veep 5.9

  • Gimmick episodes like this are a mixed blessing. Yes, they can be clever and fun but they also make you feel like you have missed an episode of your favourite show. I remember feeling that way about some of the Moonlighting episodes back in the 80s and I feel the same now. 
  • Having said that: this is a funny and clever outing, allowing us another look at scenes we’ve been before from a new angle. The Mike stuff was the best.
  • Also: the big story arc of the season reaches a climax. What next?
