A TV show which goes inside the political views of K Street lobbyists in Washington, D.C., and people who they give advice to, including senators and congressmen. Some lobbyists are real people, such as James Carville and Mary Matalin, and some are fake, like Tommy Flannegan, Francisco Dupre, and Maggie Morris. The first half of episodes of this TV program were about the lobbyists' relationship with the government, clients, and the law. The second half portrayed a leak, giving away the CIA's identity, and Tommy's relationship with his wife.Written by

Good, but 10 Episodes Enough
This show is fusion... Curb Your Enthusiasm meets The West Wing. I think this was well done , but 10 episodes clearly enough. Basically ,this is a fictionalized account of DC , playing as the political version of Curb. What Larry David is to Curb, James Carville is to this show. Very intelligent though not quite as funny as Curb, the show is a fine depiction of how The inner circle of DC uses the media to get their message to the masses. I do feel the show could have used more humor but it is more of a fictionalized documentary , with roots of truth . I liked this show and ,surprisingly, I thought James Carville is a fine actor. Hmmmm , maybe that is telling in itself when it comes to our beloved public servants, but I shall digress. The material here is real and I like that the issues are more of light nature. One can easily enjoy this without taking on the somberness of the state of the world. The show is nonpartisan , so no side of the political aisle needs to be offended. Give this a watch and you will probably agree that it is a nice show and that 10 eps are just enough.
