    Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Anna Chlumsky have been great in this series. Though it has British origins (the TV satire “The Thick Of It” and the film “In The Loop”), Veep is a very funny skewering of American politics, politicians, and their staffs. It’s off to a strong start this season and I’m pleased as punch with the news it will be back again in 2014.
