Follow on for "West Wing" fans
27 April 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was hoping that this could take on the mantle of the gap I know "The West Wing" will leave after the final series: something to stimulate, challenge and educate me, not to mention making me laugh. After watching 4 episodes I'm pleased to say that it might. It's intelligently written, doesn't pander to the audience and the performances are excellent. Geena Davis is incredibly believable and you can sympathise with her being torn between home and family and the most important job in the US. There are a couple of drawbacks - the enemy character of Nathan (and I've always liked Donald Sutherland). It's just that the paranoia and backstabbing is getting a bit tiresome. And to a lesser degree, I really want to slap the teenage daughter who's a real brat (the character, not the actress). I'm looking forward to more, I want to see exciting plot lines and I'm hoping it doesn't go down the route of "I'm out to get you in every episode": the same rehash every time, because as much as that might reflect reality, I'd like to see more of her governing and doing the job, rather than being thwarted in her attempts.
