"Dirty" TV comedy
14 September 2006 | by (Tokyo, Japan) – See all my reviews

But I still laughed.

Fans of Soap will dig it. There was clearly a lot of inspiration there.

And the satire was brilliant.

Patty Duke was the eye of this hurricane. The only normal one. The rest were your regular stereotypes.

Philandering first husband. Friendly but slightly unhinged Russian Premier. (Shawn was excellent in the role.) Loose daughter. Gay assistant. War monger General. Right wing secretary of state. (Herscel Bernardi's last role?) Southern gentleman democrat. And Glynn Thurman playing and over-the-top version of Jesse Jackson nearly stealing the show.

The humor was a bit off color, but that's what made me laugh. I think people liked it despite themselves.
