It may not have happened in real life yet but the phrase “Madame President” is heard quite often in HBO’s Veep. Seinfeld star Julia Louis Dreyfus is a fun, fierce, egotistical Vice President in season one of the show. She pulls no punches and her eclectic team, while sometimes a dismal failure, seems to match her demeanor and abilities to a tee. Hailed as one of the best comedies in decades, Veep has benefited from a time-slot near Game of Thrones but it’s not just a second fiddle type of show. Veep has hauled in its share of awards every season, with Julia winning best comedic actress multiple times. The show is a hidden gem and we know you’ll want to stream Veep the device of your choosing in this day and age. Here are the best ways to watch Veep online.
