TV Showcase #106: Veep #11: Hostages


Hostages is the 11th episode of Veep and the third of season two, first broadcasted on April 28, 2013 with a script by Armando Ianucci & Sean Grey and directed by Chris Addison.

When a hostage crisis in Uzbekistan heats up, Selina and Secretary of Defense General Maddox (Isiah Whitlock, Jr.) have a trouble getting on the same page during their joint appearance at the Marine Corps Base in Quantico. Sue testifies at a Congressional hearing on governmental efficiencies, which turns into a ‘robust’ media frenzy. Dan and Gary fight for the Veep’s ear. Sue’s replacement, Cliff, makes a mistake, which affects the Senate Swearing In Ceremony and a man’s leg.

A pretty solid episode with a lot of good funny moments and great acting from the cast including Isiah Whitlock Jr.
