Veep - Season 2

The Spring trailers are coming thick and fast now…

Hot on the heels of new teasers for Game of Thrones and Nurse Jackie, here’s the first look at the second season of the Julia Louis-Dreyfus political comedy, Veep.

I was a fan of Veep first time around and will certainly be tuning in this year. At it’s best Veep is whip crack smart and laugh out loud funny – and certainly much better observed than fellow hyped-to-death HBO offering, The Newsroom.

My only quibble with the show? I wish the characters could display a bit more warmth towards one another. Sometimes it’s exhausting watching a show where every character pretty much loathes one another and the dialogue becomes a non stop tirade of insults. Of course that acerbic tone is part of the appeal of the show!

This time Veep will have a larger scope – with Vice President Selina Meyer heading abroad on a political trip – and more insight into the characters’ partners, families – and exes.

Veep returns Sunday April 14th on HBO. Here’s the trailer…
