TV Show: Veep
Episode Title: A Woman First
Original Air Date: June 18, 2017
Episode Number: 6×09
Selina’s book finally arrives; Jonah has an important meeting; Dan, Ben, and Kent go out for drinks.
This is one of the better episodes this season because Selina wasn’t as mean to her staff as in previous episodes. Also, they got a win despite the horrible truths that are coming out of her presidency; now everyone knows that she was the one who negotiated the Tibet deal with China and not Montez. That’s pretty huge and hopefully that will be the focal point of the diary leaks and not the rest of the items. Although, there are quite a few questionable and possibly not legal actions on there so maybe this is just the calm before the storm.
Jonah getting totally ripped a new one by his uncle has got to be one of the funniest scenes this season. Yes, the uncle was mean as hell, but I don’t mind his mean-ness that much because it’s targeted at Jonah (I felt bad for Shawnee when he was saying all those mean things about her, though) and we all know how horrible a person Jonah is. This is probably the end of his congressional run, he lost his fiancee, Kent and Ben are gone, and he became Jewish for nothing. He has nothing else left and somewhat I don’t feel sorry for him.
Dan getting pushed out of his show and Jane coming back and hosting it again (this time with Brie) was something I didn’t see coming, but i like this development. Now Dan, Ben, and Kent can all work together to work their magic. Can’t wait to see what they come up with.
Other random observations:
– Kent in his nerdy basketball outfit was too freaking hilarious. I loved that he jumped and said “Yes!” when Jonah fired him.
– Selina’s book title is horrible. A Woman First: First Woman? Really? LOL.
– This quote: “My presidency just got caught with a tranny hooker on Sunset Boulevard, and I have to make America think that I was just giving her a ride home.”
– Selina to Mike: “Why do you work for me, you stupid mustache?!”
– Adam Scott as the Tonight Show host was cool. He’s certainly making the rounds.
