Veep (HBO)
This new HBO series just started airing in the States. EP1 Available in usual places now.

It's an adaption of the BBC series "the thick of it" .
Hopped in the car and torpe'ed to the shack
Of Shaheed, "We gotta go back" when he said
"Why?" I said, "We gotta go
'Cause I left my wallet in El Segundo"

Yeah I was just about to write that ^

Definitely similar in style, but it's written by Armando Iannucci so go figure.

I liked the first ep.

it's very different to the thick of it, which is a good thing. i hate fucking remakes (as i've told you all before).

show has a lot of potential imo.

It's not a remake of The Thick Of It and it's not half as funny. But I don't bother comparing anything to The Thick Of It cause it's one of my favourite shows of all time. I was a little worried when I first heard about Veep as the American scenes in In The Loop weren't half as funny as the British scenes. But I love Armando and after three episodes I'm starting to love this. Lack of a Malcolm Tucker character is a bit of a hole but I guess he couldn't have an American version as that would be kind of lame. There's only one Malcolm.
