Goofs

Lord John Marbury is described as having been the "British Ambassador to India". As both the United Kingdom and India are members of the Commonwealth, their diplomatic missions to each other are called "High Commission" rather than "Embassy"; as a consequence, the head of the mission would be the High Commissioner.

I should've locked her in the dungeon
21 October 2012 | by (Estero Island) – See all my reviews

It's time to wax rhapsodic - Lord John is coming to town. The incomparable Roger Rees (ROBIN HOOD: MEN IN TIGHTS, CHEERS) debuts one of the highest- juiced characters in show history, as an emergency adviser on a military escalation between India and Pakistan. C.J. is frozen out of the loop regarding the latest military intelligence, over concerns she might leak it to the press. For any STARGATE fanatics out there, we've got two members of that cast, in one show: John Diehl, as a contentious Freedom of Information Act lawyer, and Eric Avari, as the pakistani ambassador. And the first romantic overtures between Charlie and Zoe! Charlie asks Jed for his blessing. One resultant scene, about racial non-issues, belongs on an all-time best Jed/Leo scenes list. About the show's liberal bias...the writers are quickly becoming more adept at even-handedness, as evidenced by occasionally giving a conservative argument to a series regular (or later on to Ainslie and Walken and Joe). And moments that feel biased, often aren't so at all. For example, Mandy floats the idea of working for a liberal republican, and Sam snaps at her that it's not her job to end the fight, it's her job to win it. If his outburst came from a conservative republican character, most would boo and hiss...yet with Sam we're much more tolerant. It's up to us to recognize that in ourselves...the screenwriter's only job is to convey truth.
