'Veep' - 'Fundraiser': Plastics!

What did everybody think of HBO's new political satire?

I posted my review of HBO's "Veep" on Friday morning. Now it's your turn. What did everybody think of Julia Louis-Dreyfus as V-POTUS? If you're a fan of Armando Iannucci's UK work, did this stack up, or did you miss the presence of Malcolm Tucker? Were any "My Girl" fans scarred by seeing Ann Chlumsky in this kind of role? How do you feel Tony Hale did? And, most importantly, are you going to watch again? 

Though I enjoyed this show a lot, I'm not planning to do weekly write-ups of it. Not only are Sundays a complete bear, but the three episodes I've seen are all very much of a piece, and I doubt I'd have interesting/different things to say each week, even if my time was less constrained.

So have at it, and I'll check back in either later in the season if they do an unusual episode, or else at the very end.

'Seinfeld' alum shines in new political satire from 'Thick of It' creator Armando Iannucci
Many jobs are what you make of them. When you become Vice President of the United States, though, the job is what the President lets you make of it. Sometimes, the VP gets invested with tremendous power, as President Bush the younger did with Dick Cheney; other times, the VP is marginalized as quickly as possible, as President Bush the elder did with Dan Quayle.
 
Selina Meyer, the heroine (of sorts) of the new HBO comedy "Veep"  (Sunday at 10 p.m.), desperately wants to be a Cheney, but is instead more of a Quayle.

FOX at 25: A quarter-century of risk-taking

Not every experiment works, but this is the network that gave us 'The Simpsons,' 'The X-Files' and a lot more
Television has changed so much in the 25 years since the FOX network launched in primetime — an anniversary(*) being celebrated with a primetime special on Sunday night — that it's hard to convey to someone under 30 what a big deal it was for a fourth network to not only debut, but endure.
