Good start
30 September 2014 | by ppllukSee all my reviews

For me as an European I watched this show, as many other on the same subject, as an entertainment and not as an intellectual and purist page of pure politic..... Comparing Tea Leoni's character with Hillary Clinton is just BS, in my humble opinion as a foreigner, Tea is in every way a lot better, no comparison, if only the US will have a woman like this show is portraying, I'll bet she would be the next President... unfortunately it doesn't. I can understand if you are a politician or in any way work in the system, well, probably you'd be disappointed with the terminology and accuracy of the script. I would say this is a show not for you or for any social aggressive, intolerant or cynic, anti-religious, racist or plain and simple ignorant. I enjoyed the scenery, music, costumes, and above all a fresh cast: powerful and with very good acting. The script is articulate, intelligent with good references and subtext. There are some clichés why not? They give it a more real approach; we do have them all around us. That it has some religious context, why not? Is not your religion? Or you're an atheist, or you consider yourself above all religion believes?! Good for you! And so on and so forth. If you don't agree or like something, just ignore it or be active and ask yourself why is it there? Perhaps there is a reason, even if the reason is no reason at all and it was just a nonsensical thing... :- ) Sit back and enjoy the show, if you don't like it, you know what to do, just switch to another one, or read a good book or spend some time doing what you love. Don't punish yourself watching something you don't like just to go ahead and spread your anger for everyone to see as if the rest of the world would have to listen and follow!!!. I hope I'll be entertained with this show if not I'll change and search for another one. Making comparisons is not bad but trying to compare everything!!! I just think you lose perspective... and is bad for your health.... Be positive and constructive, there is enough violence and intolerance in the world, let's try and be proactive and contribute for a better and fairer society... it begins in each and every one no matter your colour, religious believes or social status... BE HAPPY!! Contributing in a positive way...
