HBO's political comedy Veep wrapped up its freshman term last night with what was easily its strongest outing since the pilot. Don't get us wrong -- we've thoroughly enjoyed the show throughout its eight episode run, but this was a case where the whole sometimes felt better than the sum of its parts. Particularly during the middle chunk of the season, the show occasionally suffered from some wonky storytelling (like Selina's pregnancy, although that was resolved in hilariously dark fashion) and scenarios that never fully realized their comic potential (Gary breaking up with Selina's almost baby daddy on her behalf). But even when the material wasn't quite clicking, the cast always made Veep great fun to watch. Led by the fearless Julia Louis-Dreyfus, this ensemble played off each other so seamlessly, observing them work was like attending a master class in sketch comedy every week.
