Goofs

Novaya Gazeta is depicted as a sensationalist and grossly irresponsible Russian tabloid. It is actually a highbrow pro-democracy newspaper, published since 1993 by the Gorbachev Foundation. (It is also pronounced NOV-aya, not no-VA-ya.) See more »

Quotes

Russian Negotiator Nikolai Ivanovich: Why must every American president bound out of an automobile like as at a yacht club while in comparison our leader looks like... I don't even know what word is.
Sam Seaborn: Frumpy?
Russian Negotiator Nikolai Ivanovich: I don't know what "frumpy" is but onomatopoetically sounds right.
Sam Seaborn: It's hard not to like a guy who doesn't know frumpy but knows onomatopoeia.

onomatopoetically, sounds right
18 November 2012 | by (Jersey City) – See all my reviews

The unassuming start of the most awesome four-episode run in the history of the show. A new Russian President, caught between ideals and conservative hardliners, communicates a major initiative through a protocol meeting between his aides and Sam. One of the negotiators is played by irresistible heavy Ian McShane (DEADWOOD, SEXY BEAST). Leo and Jed fret over a recall disaster that befalls a major computer company. They give its CEO (the uber-wonderful Peter Scolari - BOSOM BUDDIES, NEWHART) an unorthodox bailout. Then, in the final minutes, the quiet jolt of adrenaline arrives, in the form of secret service agent Simon Donovan (Mark Harmon - SUMMER SCHOOL, CHICAGO HOPE, NCIS), who has been assigned to protect C.J. after she receives death threats. They have an instant, electric Lucy/Desi chemistry.
