2011/2012: When HBO became my favourite.
A self-admitted nerd, Chlumsky spent her free time practicing kung fu, managing fantasy-football teams, and, occasionally, publicly krumping: “There are songs where no matter how much you know you shouldn’t—like the Ying Yang Twins’ ‘Shake’—I’ll be in a dress, and I’ll krump to it. It’s horrible!”
This is precisely why Anna Chlumsky and I ought to be friends. (Also, Anna Chlumsky was beyond great in Veep last night and I am looking forward to seeing her on my
television laptop screen every week!)
“Louis-Dreyfus has found perhaps her best post-Seinfeld role and takes to it with such fervor — the constant swearing, the barely veiled desire to become president, the unhappy give-and-take with other politicians and a delightful disdain for average citizens — that you can’t help but applaud what is clearly an Emmy-worthy effort.”
I am excited for Veep, y’all.
