On His Feet Again
27 January 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

With the Teacher's Union tucked in his belt, Frank heads back to the White House, basking in the glory of his "accomplishments." He enlists Zoe to take an even more secretive and active role in promoting him, the whole time manipulating the manipulator. This all works like clockwork which is its failing, in some ways. While it is good television, and, let's face it, there is little reality in the one hour segment in even the most able dramas, it is still a little too pat, setting up the narrative hook. What is great, though, is the ensemble is really set for us and the issues like lust, alcoholism, betrayal, ambition, are right there and as we proceed, they will become even more impactful.
