General Comment
12 October 2005 | by jovanna-carterSee all my reviews

I just wanted to comment on how much I truly love the show. I've never been big on politics because it's always been a bit over my head but I find this show very intriguing and I look forward to watching it every week. For some reason I really feel as though I can relate to Geena Davis's character. I like the respect that is shown to her when she walks into the "Situation Room" and how she seems to switch gears so quickly. One moment she's talking to her kids the next moment she's on Ntnl. Television. It's empowering and I'm really enjoying the show thus far. Geena Davis is a great actress and I have no doubt in my mind that this role will lead her right to her 1st Emmey.

The only thing I don't like about the show is the youngest daughter. She annoys the crap out of me on a weekly basis. She always seems to be in the way. She's always trying to look wide eyed and adorable when really she's just needs to find something to do.
