Veep Sea­son Six

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - What To Watch - S. Indramalar

IF you thought Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Drey­fus) was hi­lar­i­ous as the pres­i­dent, she’s even fun­nier (in a re­ally tragic way) as the fallen pres­i­dent who has lost most of her team­mates (although they are still fea­tured plenty in the show, thank­fully).

Also, thank good­ness the showrun­ners de­cided to have Selina lose the elec­tion at the end of Sea­son Five – be­fore Don­ald Trump took of­fice – be­cause even the best writ­ers could not make a bum­bling Selina worse than the real bum­bling McCoy and his team. So this sea­son, real-life com­par­isons don’t come into play with­out sac­ri­fic­ing the qual­ity of the show and its jokes.

So in­stead we have Selina want­ing to pub­lish her mem­oir by en­list­ing Mike McLin­tock (Matt Walsh) to write it. While go­ing through the im­por­tant mo­ments of her life, Selina dis­cov­ers that ev­ery­thing she thought she knew about her fa­ther was a lie – he sold her pre­cious horse when she was a girl, he cheated on her mother and was never re­ally there for her.

Gary (Tony Hale), still her as­sis­tant, con­tin­ues to fawn over her while she, in turn, con­tin­ues to dis­re­gard him. It’s still great com­edy. –

Veep Sea­son Six airs Mon­days at 10.30am on HBO (Astro Ch 411).

For­mer pres­i­dent Selina Meyer (Louis-Drey­fus) and her as­sis­tant Gary (Hale) con­tinue to re­gale us with laugh­ter this sea­son.
