Request renewal of program
2 May 2006 | by schmidtrrSee all my reviews

We think Commander in Chief is an excellent program and think it should be renewed for next season. Our children should see a positive female role model in a very responsible position. There are not enough show on television that encourage a young girl to further her aspirations.

The plot line is realistic and very true to life, the characters are engaging and very dynamic. We love the strife between Donald Sutherland and Geena Davis. The side plots are also pretty good.

We look forward every week to this show.

Please keep this show on.

Thank you.
