Veep - Testimony

“Testimony” picks up where “B/ill” left off, with the Meyer administration brought before Congress on allegations of fraud stemming from Gary’s verbal agreement to pay Dan and Amy to lobby against the Families First bill. Rather than follow the action behind the scenes, as the show so frequently does, this episode switches perspective and shooting style, mimicking C-SPAN footage and keeping the camera mostly static as staffers come up one by one to testify about the events of the season. This approach makes “Testimony” a rare beast, both standalone (a discrete, compartmentalized episode following the hearings) and serialized (a culmination of the entire season). Rather than propelling episodes forward, as it did in season three, following Selina’s campaign this season has bogged down the action, as one setback after another stymied the team. Putting all of that baggage aside and focusing on telling a contained story, while maintaining the subtext of Selina’s perilous position, works wonderfully to reenergize the season going into the finale.

Tears

Veep - Tears Online S01E08Armando Iannucci made it clear with last week’s episode that “Veep” will be steering away from anything resembling real issues. While a pregnant Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfuss) at the end of “Baseball” opened the door to a potentially inspired direction for the show, one episode later it was explained away by Meyer having a miscarriage, as the veep and her team moved on to the next issue that was plaguing their office. The show’s established theme is that the office of the veep is essentially powerless and even meaningless, and as a result it doesn’t have much to say about the political climate in Washington except for how it operates on the most superficial level. The recurring theme is that those in Washington who wield power and influence are stupid, assholes, self-involved or all three at once. Listen, we get it, but we hope as “Veep” moves into season two it has a bit more to say as they are running out of non-issues to try and mine for laughs.

The waterworks proved beneficial for Selina as she went from a toxic asset to the President whose endorsement a low-level congressman didn’t even want, to a DC power broker who was suddenly the most popular woman in Washington.

This is another example of Veep’s obsession with how appearance, in politics, outweighs any actual politics. But the real star of this episode was not any member of the regular cast. Instead it was a newcomer, Congressman Roger Furlong. Played by the excellent Dan Bakkedahl, Furlong is a foul-mouthed volcano who is a gift to the “Best Lines of the Night” section below.
