BDOTPOTUS*

Veep returned for a fifth season this week, picking up after the nail-biting cliff-hanger-ending of last year’s finale, and pulling all of the regular characters back together again, while also adding another famous face to the extended ensemble: Clea DuVall … Continue reading

A Kind Of Crazy 2: Killer Catnip

[Contains disturbing dog-food suppliers and SPOILERS!!!] Inevitably, as soon as I’d finished watching Wonderfalls I started jonesing for more Hannibal, and began binge-watching the second season (2014)… which was just as implausible and plot-holed as the first season, but also … Continue reading

A Kind Of Crazy 1: Abby-Normal

[Contains hard-core food pron and SPOILERS!!!] I’ve already mentioned one of my reasons for being wary of the Hannibal TV series, but I was also a little put off by the male-dominated cast… so kudos to showrunner Bryan Fuller for … Continue reading

Def-Con Fun!

[Contains ghost-written memoirs and SPOILERS!!!] Rather than rest on its laurels, Veep changed things up for its third season, sending ‘Selina Meyer’ (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) off across America on the campaign trail… no longer content to just sit in her office, … Continue reading

When Life Gives You Lemlers

C.I.Yay?

[Contains “original” flavour Pringles and SPOILERS!!!] I was jonesing for more X-Files to binge on, and ended up slapping on the metaphorical nicotine patch of Covert Affairs… which turned out to be a fun girly-spy show, with a rather ludicrous … Continue reading

Loopy

[Contains motorcade-cruisin’ SPOILERS!] Last Saturday, BBC2 were showing In the Loop (2009), so I thought it might be fun to watch it again, to see how it compared to writer/director Armando Iannucci’s subsequent HBO sitcom Veep. In truth, aside from … Continue reading

VP-Hell 2: The Softening?

Although frequently hilarious, there was something slightly dispiriting about the first season of Veep, which (much like its British forebear, The Thick Of It) left me feeling slightly empty and depressed once the laughter had died down. Strangely, that wasn’t … Continue reading
