Surprisingly Great Pilot, Well Done NBC
19 November 2014 | by leverageprogramSee all my reviews

I too am surprised I liked it because I don't care for Kathryn H, but she pulls it off well and has won me over. I hated the first few minutes because her acting(being a ho & in denial with the psychiatrist) could've been better. However, the end of the pilot left me very curious so I will definitely, keep watching. Also, the cast is GREAT! Love Woodard! She is believable as president. And truly want to see more of the dad from Dexter (Remar), also Boutsikaris and Derek Ray. Remar's character is mysterious and menacing, which adds to the plot. I feel that this show is WAY better than Madame Secretary due to pace and plot. Btw, Tea Leoni is very monotone so it's hard to listen to her. However, I think it's great overall to have so many dramas with these great powerhouse actresses! (Heigl, Woodard, Washington, Leoni, Davis, Margulies, Baranski, Panjabi, Bree Turner, etc) And I'm not a feminist, just a fan of good roles for women and good TV :)
