Trivia

Stockard Channing really did break her ankle in real life (it was a hiking accident). Rather than shelving the character or severely limiting where she could be shown, it was decided to give the First Lady the same injury in the show. See more »

Goofs

The USS Portland captain mentions maintaining radio silence to evade a Luda class destroyer. This class is only employed by the Chinese People's Navy, and would not be actively patrolling North Korean waters in the first place, let alone be so close to the South Korean border. See more »

C.J.'s too sexy for her podium
16 November 2012 | by (Estero Island) – See all my reviews

When contact with a nuclear sub is lost, Asst. Secretary of State Albie Duncan (national treasure Hal Holbrook - ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN, WALL STREET), a crusty dinosaur whose scolding and pontificating make Jed hide, is called in. Toby defends the N.E.A. from the philistines. He's asked what he thinks about an artist who strips, covers herself in chocolate, and and sings. He replies, "By and large, I'm not wild about musicals". The sparring between Abbey and Babish is priceless. The high point belongs to Bruno, when he talks with disgust over how the word "liberal" has been demonized...and the liberals allowed it to happen. Silver's finest WEST WING moment.
