YMMV: VEEP
  • Dueling Shows: (or maybe complimenting shows) BBC America started airing the original The Thick of It around the same time Veep started (they did the same thing for Free Agents).
  • Growing the Beard: A more gradual case than most. The first season earned positive reviews, though it was with the second season that the show earned recognition for more than Julia Louis-Dreyfus' performance, with many noting the strengthening of its supporting characters and citing episodes like "Hostages" as a case for the show expanding its scope.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Two episodes in season 2 deal with debt negotiations that fail, leading to a government shutdown. Fast forward to October 2013...
  • Magnificent Bitch: Amy leaking to Jonah to get Ray and Dan fired and land herself the campaign manager job gives her a moment of this.
  • Squick: Selina tearing up her face and hand when she shatters a glass door.
  • Tearjerker: The end of "Hostages."
