Progressive politics derail another promising show
19 May 2018 | by darkavenger77See all my reviews

I'm up to episode 11 now and have noticed in the past few episodes a definite political bias. It occurred to me when this aired GW Bush was still president. A prior episode took jabs at federal funding for sex education and teaching abstinence in particular. Now the lawyers take the case of a "gay" chimpanzee, complete with "testimony" from one. By 2008, there was plenty to complain about re: GW Bush. Why they avoided the serious intrusion upon our civil liberties the USA PATRIOT act imposed makes little sense. Maybe they'll get around to that one.

When the show began, it was an interesting premise. Like so many (Saving Hope, Designated Survivor), the writer's political bias has come to the forefront and replaced the premise of the show.

On the plus side, we have Peg Bundy as the new big bad, and it looks like she'll be here for a while.

This was a ludicrous episode. It used to be much better.
