It’s fashionable to say that politically driven shows like Veep and House of Cards have been made irrelevant by the Trump administration, because no scheme the shows’ writers dream up could be nuttier than whatever headline you read right before you clicked on this review. But that thought never occurred to me while watching the bugnuts fifth season of Netflix’s potboiler. I keep seeing the same joke recycled on social media: that the current White House is House of Cards as performed by the cast of Veep. But that doesn’t seem right, because it fails to capture the creeping dread and incipient chaos of 2017 that this show mirrors so perfectly.
