'Veep,' by MSNBC Host Chris Hayes
I thought the first season of Veep was great, and the second really hit its stride. Julia Louis-Dreyfus just kills it. They're plumbing the depths of awkwardness. The show is about ambition and status obsession, and the weird channeling of ego and competition and sex that happens in Washington. In some ways, it's a case study in how satire can get at deeper truths.
