Ben's reaction to Jonah shooting himself in the foot was great.

We need more Jonah shenanigans.
I couldn't stop laughing when he shot himself in the foot and Ben's laughter was infectious.

Was that the season finale? I thought it was supposed to be 10 episodes, not 9.

Anyhoo, wonder if next season will be fallout from the documentary and/or Selena being Dr. House's Veep.

Favorite line of the season; "I'm eating so much pussy, I"m shitting clits!"

There's at least one more. There was a preview for next week.

I could watch a show of just Peter MacNicol's character berating Jonah

Okay, so are they going to have more seasons of this? Because I don't see how. The show is called Veep, so I figured they'd just have Selina be veep again, but I guess not?

Yea... well I thought it was weird that she was President for so long given the title of the show... but, like you - figured she'd be back to Veep again. But I guess it's refreshing to take an alternate path. Maybe we get to see her as a regular person, and also get to see her try to climb back somehow. Could be interesting.

The image of Mike carrying a 6-year-old in a Baby Bjorn is still making me laugh

It was really weird seeing that senile old fart Bob Bradley still working on the Nevada ballots, who even told him to? But it looks like that's probably how they are gonna work the whole group back into the White House picture again.

And they kept mentioning how Cathrine lost the memory card with all the footage she shot. I'm sure that'll play into things somehow. But I'm not sure what, as it was all embarrassing information on that thing.

Yea, I forgot about the memory card. I figured she was going to lose the footage earlier in the season, then this episode mentioned she lost it... and then I totally forgot about it and it was never referenced again.

I'm guessing there's incriminating footage on there that will make Selina look bad - but may also help her get back into office somehow?

I did like how Catherine turned into her mother and Selina turned into her daughter ie. Catherine's all dressed up and asks her mom "are you going to wear your hair like that?".

It seemed like Gary stole the hard drive because of the way he quickly told Catherine that Selina hadn't seen it.

Show will be about Ex-President Selina Meyer

I for one am glad they aren't going the How I Met Your Mother route and hold the title of the show sacred.

That was my thought too, actually. I don't see how they could get her back in right away. It was convoluted enough as it was (though kind of fascinating - I bet this show is pretty accurate as to how our government actually works).

I almost thought they were going to go the route of Montez being born in Mexico and therefore not eligible to be president.

My guess is that angle will get pursued next season, as it seemed like they were laying that groundwork...

I thought they were just making fun of her for being Ohioan but pronouncing her name with a Spanish accent.

It sounds like the showrunners are not going to try and get Selina back in office.
