Former vice president and onetime president Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) is back in the campaign trail in the seventh and final season of the acclaimed HBO comedy series. As Selina woos uber-wealthy donors while navigating threats from primary challengers, including aide-turned Congressman Jonah Ryan (Timothy C. Simons), her band of misfits is also back – save for Mike (Matt Walsh), who’s been banished from Selina’s orbit and now covers the Presidential campaign, having been replaced by ongoing nemesis in the press, reporter Leon West (Brian Huskey). Meanwhile, Amy (Anna Chlumsky) is figuring out how she feels about her pregnancy vis-a-vis Dan (Reid Scott), who seems unwillingly to give up his playboy ways for fatherhood. And rounding out the team are ever-faithful bagman Gary (Tony Hale), cantankerous Ben (Kevin Dunn), numbers-obsessed Kent (Gary Cole) and new staffer Richard (Sam Richardson).

Julia Louis Dreyfus is outstanding and so are many others in it! Lots of fast talking and well written clever dialogue. Also I avoid most news and political stuff but this is different; quite deserving of it’s high praise.

Selina Meyers is a slightly smarter Sarah Palin. Just as self centered, power hungry, status and glory seeking. We might add ungrateful to those who are loyal. Now we get into Trump territory. The Cast is superb. The Satire biting. Julia is a great comedian. Tony Hale is great. Chris Meloni was a riot in his story arc. Everyone is well cast. The entire ensemble cast is great. The story lines move along, and no season disappoints. The wrap up at the end, was surprising, and her epithet was disturbing and funny in a very black comedy way.
