The current regime is the Starbucks cup in the Westeros of the Veep Fictional Universe: it’s always there in the background, breaking the alternate-reality spell. The premise revolved around a Washington D.C. scene where Selina Meyer could stand out as a notably horrible human, where politicians felt obliged to hide criminal activity, where everyone assumed the American people could only tolerate so much corruption. But that changed in the final seasons, when Meyer’s Beltway full of bastards got out-absurded by current events. It was as if that 1938 War of the Worlds radio broadcast got interrupted by an actual Martian invasion. Veep needed the Obama White House for context the way The X-Files needed Bill Clinton. Neither show could handle the transition of power. … [Read more...] about Hail to the ‘Veep’: How HBO’s Political Comedy Made History
Macaulay Culkin retired from acting at the age of 14 and has continued to stay out of the public eye. Pictures of the former star have brought up rumors of heavy drug use, but Culkin has denied any of it and reports say that he's a grounded adult with a child-like sense of humor.
