veep + a character you'd die defending
I think this one is obvious – I love Amy Brookheimer with all my cold-black heart and don’t care who knows it. I also find myself getting irrationally defensive whenever people are too snippy about Selina (who I openly admit is a terrible person) (but…still. Leave Selina Meyer ALONE).
NOT Dan, oddly enough. Dan brings out my schadenfreude to a degree I find faintly worrying. As in, even when he had his nervous breakdown and was in a hospital bed, I still lacked even the faintest sympathy for him. If anything, I enjoyed watching him suffer. (I think this partly because Dan – unlike some of the other, more straight-forwardly comic, characters – does have at least the potential to be a proper human being – and so I get irritated with him for consistently choosing not to be).
Oh, and as much as I think Ben is the most ruthless character on Veep…when HE gets upset or emotional, I feel an immediate Urge to Hug.
