veep au → dan and amy as spies!
Special Agents Brookheimer and Egan are two of Washington, D.C.’s sharpest, so it makes sense for the Vice President to assign them as partners for a top-secret espionage mission. The only problem is that they hate each other’s guts.
#IT’S THE B-PLOT OF CHASING LIBERTY BUT WITH MORE HEIGHT DIFFERENCES AND STRAIGHT UP AGGRESSION #'amy is that your third martini?' #'i'm seeing if gin-goggles make you less of a pain in my ass' #[amy backseat driving during a car chase] #[dan taking every opportunity to pose as marrieds] #[amy giving herself pep talks in the bathroom so she doesn’t punch him then kiss him] #[dan having emergency poison darts sewn strategically into his formalwear] #IT’S ALL I EVER WAAANTED [yeaaah] IT’S ALL I EVER NEEEEDED [YEEeeah] SO TELL ME WHAT TO DOOOO NOOOOW #THAT I WANT #THIS #BAaaaD
THE NEW KID IN LATE NIGHT
Seth Meyers is the best listener on television. To see the proof, watch him every night on his new show, Late Night With Seth Meyers. His ability to connect his big-picture brain with his compassionate attention to detail makes him a great host and a loyal friend. He is a sharp performer and superior writer. But his biggest talent is the delight he takes in helping others look good. At Saturday Night Live, Seth spent 13 years making sure the comedy sausage was delivered on time. Sometimes it was delicious; other times it was tough. But he always knew what the show needed to make it edible. Often it needed him on Weekend Update, as a fake anchor delivering real news. Late Night needs him now, and we are lucky he has arrived. It’s a brutal business, this late-night game. Thankfully the new kid in town is an old pro with a kind set of eyes and the skills to pay the bills. [Note to TIME editors: I am upset with Seth for complaining our recent dinner went on too long, so please take him off this list per my request. Thanks in advance.]
