Great Show!
8 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this program last Saturday night and I was COMPLETELY impressed. There was lots of integrity and attention to detail. It was also great how there were captions that explained to the watcher who each character was, as pertains to how the US government runs. It was also multicultural without being over the top obvious about trying to represent all of the different ethnicities that make up this country. That is always a plus in my book when it comes to popular culture. I truly hope that they keep this one on the air. Taking the perspective of having a President (and I capitalize the word as a high five to Geena Davis),who is an Independent is certainly a different spin than any similar program that has come before (including others that have had a woman as in the oval office. I hope it has long life. I really don't care very much for The West Wing. Go Get 'em Geena and crew!! Can't wait to see the next episode.
