User Reviews

 
Will wait and see
24 September 2014 | by KalianiSee all my reviews

Being from Europe and not really interested in the details of US politics, I watched the show simply as entertainment and did not take it too seriously. Too bad some people take it as propaganda, it's only a TV show...

I liked the pilot and it left a lot of room for character and storyline development.

Seeing as there are far worst shows out there, I'm willing to give this one a chance and hope to be positively surprised.

Also, I've been waiting for Téa Leoni to be back on TV and really enjoyed watching her in a role that is perfect for her.
