I like TV. Probably more than any human should.

HBO Does The Obvious, Smart Thing And Renews Girls And Veep

leave a comment »

In a charming bit of serendipity, HBO announced yesterday that it’s renewed its two newest comedies, Girls and Veep. I say serendipitous because I just wrote about Girls on this very site yesterday. Lesson to TV producers – if I write about your show, you’ll get renewed. FACT. All kidding aside, both of these moves seemed to be no-brainers based on the strength of both shows’ early returns. Girls, as I wrote in my review yesterday, brings Lena Dunham’s unique voice to television and the show’s examination of twentysomething women in NYC struggling with the cusp of adulthood has the potential (if it’s not there already) to be an essential show. I’ll likely have something up on Veep in the next few days but suffice it to say, it might have been my favorite comedy pilot since perhaps Community back in 2009. Both of these shows absolutely deserved a renewal – which is pretty much a fait accompli with HBO series – and they, along with shows like Game Of Thrones and Boardwalk Empire are helping to restore the HBO cache that had lost some luster in recent years.
