‘Veep’ wins a second season
The second season of the highly anticipated Emmy-nominated HBO comedy series, Veep, is winning top ratings since its cable premiere on May 13.
Created by Oscar nominee Armando Iannucci, the 10-episode series skewers the nuances of everyday office politics–set against the backdrop of the highest office in the United States.
Veep follows the whirl wind day-to-day existence of Vice President Selina Meyer as she juggles her busy public schedule, puts out political fires, and defends the president’s interests, even as she tries to improve her dysfunctional relationship with the chief executive.
Picking up in the middle of mid-term elections, this season finds Meyer scoring slightly above-average ratings in several popularity polls, which she uses to increase her influence and to curry favor with the president, as well as his new senior strategist Kent Davison.
But as shown last season, even the most banal decision made by Meyer and her staff can set off a ripple effect with unexpected and far-reaching consequences.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus reprises her Emmy-winning role as Meyer. The returning ensemble cast of the series includes Tony Haleas Gary, her right-hand man; Anna Chlumsky as Amy, her chief of staff; Matt Walsh as Mike, her weathered spokesman; Reid Scott as Dan, an ambitious political aide; Timothy Simons as Jonah, a young and somewhat clueless White House liaison; and Sufe Bradshaw as Sue, her executive assistant. Guest stars on the new season include Gary Cole who portrays the role of the new senior strategist and Kevin Dunn.
In September 2012, Julia Louis-Dreyfus received the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for the series’ first season, with the series being nominated as for Outstanding Comedy Series as well.
The new season of VEEP airs every Monday, at 10 p.m. on HBO.
When testosterone and cars collide
It takes more than leather vests and tattoos to restore and customize vintage automobiles—one also needs passion to do the job. And Danny “The Count” Koker has all of these things. In fact, this self-taught mechanic whose family worked for Ford is so enthusiastic and obsessive about classic cars and motorcycles that when he sees a vehicle he likes, he’ll do whatever it takes to get it, and then flip it.
This car-and-bike- buying machine, Danny, leads the pack in History’s newest reality show Counting Cars, which premieres in the Philippines on May 27 at 9:30 p.m. Chronicling the ins and outs of automobile restoration, every episode is jam-packed with stories of vintage cars turning from zero to hero at the hands of Danny and his leather-clad motley crew: his best friend and right-hand man Kevin, bookkeeper Scott, Mike, Roli the detailer, and Big Ryan, the shop’s parts expert.
Together they make up the Counting Cars crew—men who would recognize an automobile diamond in the rough when they see one.
History is available on SKYCable Ch 67; Cable Link Ch. 44; Dream Satellite Ch 30; Destiny Cable Ch 57.
