From Foreign Intrigue To The President To Lava Lamps To Bad News
ccthemovieman-1 from United States
6 October 2007
"You've got one hour to convince me the United States should put you in
power," Jonas tells Gen. Raja, the son of the former leader of a small
foreign country. The latter was the country's current leader taken out
of power as revenge for him killing his father. Meanwhile, a senator
who also is on this trip to this small country, is complicating
matters, and she needs to be dealt with to prevent the right thing from
Back home, the women try to make a quick surprise get-together for
Crystal since her boyfriend (I thought she was married, but apparently
was shacking up with this guy) is coming home from assignment to
propose to her.
The main focus in this show, by far, is the political situation and
potential overthrow and how several people get out of tenuous
predicaments. It makes for a tense show. The surprise regarding the
kidnapping was easy to figure out but there is a surprise on the home
front that is a shocker.
This turned out to be two good stories-in-one, meaning another solid
episode. Not every episode is excellent, but most of them fall in that
category. I was shocked to see William H. Macy playing the President of
the United States. His conversations with Blane were interesting.
The second part of the story has some good humor in it as we get a
glimpse of the crazy early '70s but then ends on a shocking note and
will be, I'm sure, a continuing story. Without spoiling anything, I'll
just state the show ends with some bad news.
