This is one of the best shows of its type I've seen in a long while. The acting is excellent and the casting superior. The show incorporates references to current events which procures and then holds your interest throughout the show while leading you to anticipate the next episode. Although it is similar to both movies and television shows in the past, I find that commander in chief takes a somewhat different approach. The way in which the scenes are portrayed make the viewer feel they are right in the middle of the action. It sets up extremely realistic scenarios and brings them to conclusion. I am tremendously disappointed when substitute shows are placed in its regular time-slot and hope to see this practice subside shortly. If a full season has not yet been shot, I would urge the production company to do so immediately. I believe this series will be one of the most popular yet. I LOVE Commander-in-Chief.
