Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that strong language is the biggest concern in the HBO comedy series VEEP, with "f--k" (and every imaginable variation of it), "bitch," "t-t," "s--t," and "d--k" being the major offenders in the anything-goes dialogue. Sex and drinking are lesser concerns but do arise, though more as conversation points than anything else. Clearly this content isn't appropriate for most teens, who probably won't fully appreciate its satirical take on the political process as a whole anyway. But for adults, it's a scathing, laugh-out-loud glimpse at what might go on in one of the most questionably effective political offices in the country.

Sexual Content

More referential than visual. There's mention of extramarital affairs, implications of using a career position to solicit sex from interns, and references to erections.


Not applicable


Frequent, comedic versions of "f--k" ("f--ktard," "pencil-f--ked," and plenty more), as well as "bitch," "t-t," "s--t," "d--k," "piss," and "God almighty."

Social Behavior

The series paints an unflattering picture of the political system as a whole -- and the vice president's role in particular -- poking fun at closed-door deals designed to further careers rather than effect positive change and making light of all-too-familiar issues like sexual relationships between public servants and interns in particular. There's also some politically incorrect name-calling like "retard" and "freak." The casting of a woman in a powerful role is a plus, but since the show takes jabs at her failures in that role as its main source of laughs, it's somewhat counterproductive.


Nothing stands out, but brand names like Dell, BlackBerry, and Wikipedia pop up in the context of the dialogue.
