Veep: Season 4 (2015) 100%

HBO’s other hit comedy — Veep, which stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as a put-upon Vice President (and later President) of the US — is also returning this weekend, so we’re getting season four of that series, too. The only extra listed is a collection of deleted scenes.

    THE REVENANT – 8/10

    VEEP’s 4th season was its best so far, but I still don’t consider it to be that good. Certainly not enough to win the Emmy. You know which show did deserve it? SILICON VALLEY. Its 2nd season was as good as the 1st one (it was my favorite non-new show of 2015).

    I can’t watch IP MAN 3 until I watch the first 2, but I do want to. I’ll skip THE LADY IN THE VAN and 50 SHADES OF BLACK.

    • Karl Lanthanimos

      the revelant 8/10….seriously? it was a two and half hours long borefest. the high point was the opening sequence and obviously the bear rape.

      • Vits/Vicente Torres

        It was clarified a while ago that the bear didn’t rape him.
