1. It had some cheesy stuff, but I still liked it
Loved Speaker Templeton. Great villain.

Best scene was when the young daughter spilled the drink on Allen. That and the big confrontational scene between Templeton and Allen. I love Donald Sutherland.

8. Good. Needs better writing and characters
I loved the premise and the two main characters--Davis and Southerland. I thought it predictable, not very dramatic, and the writing was bland at points. But I think Davis and Southerland, and the Chief of Staff, are intriguing. Also, though he had very little role, I thought the son was good. Hubbie was a bit annoying, as were a lot of the peripheral characters.

I'll watch it again, though. Could work. Just needs more imaginative scripts. They are writing about the seat of government, and I felt like the plot could have been over who ran the local civic association--well, if the local civic association had an aircraft carrier.

10. I'm hooked
I would probably like anything starring Geena Davis but I was sold before the first commercial break.

When the teleprompter crapped out I had a Bill Clinton flashback. I will continue to watch this one.

12. Actually, I think it was kind of a dig at the freeptards
Bill and Hil are the two most hated people on the right, and the way the character who kept referencing Hil I thought was funny. I'd take that whole bit with a grain of salt. After all, the prez who died in the show, plus a lot of the peripheral characters resemble Bushbots. So maybe the writers are aiming at taking some whacks at them.

I loved the show!

14. It was a backhanded way of slapping down the repukes who...
continued to go after the Clinton's.

While I didn't mind it, I don't want to see too much of it.

FICTION!

To the lounge, to the lounge.
