Top 35 Shows of 2013: No 13 Veep

This is a man’s world we live in. Because of the axis of dick.

After a good first season comes a fantastic second one. Veep built on its freshman year with a more serialised season two and was all the better for it. Selina’s attempts to wield more power resulted in a hilarious arc involving foreign policy.

Armando Iannucci has always been one my favourite comedy writers, he gets the cynical nature of politics and continually delivers devastatingly brutal put-downs.

Now Veep doesn’t have anyone near as maniacal as Malcolm Tucker but it has a very strong group of characters who back stab each other and swear their way out of cataclysmic situations. This season they all got to shine in the best possible way.
