Veep (Season 4) (2015)

Another terrific season for HBO’s brilliant political satire, “Veep” continues to distinguish itself with some of the best writing on television. Julia Louis-Dreyfus, always an impeccable comedic performer, is even better in this season than she has been thus far: With Selina becoming President, Louis-Dreyfus is free to blow up Selina’s character flaws and inflated ego to immense proportions, having lost her insecurities but given in to her thoughtlessness along the way, and she’s a delight to watch. There are a number of stand-out character arcs throughout the season, but none better than a confrontation between Louis-Dreyfus and loyal assistant Tony Hale, who delivers an electrifying monologue that redefines the relationship between the two.
