Finally something to look forward to on TV! Thank you!!
12 November 2017 | by mstaffordcaSee all my reviews

FINALLY something to look forward to on TV! THANK YOU! I don't understand these people who give bad reviews based on historical details or compare it to real life government, THIS IS A FICTIONAL DRAMA TV SHOW NOT A DOCUMENTARY people!! This is a great show and I'm sick of all the great shows getting dropped! If one more good show gets dropped I'm leaving cable TV for good. For the USA network: ratings would probably be so much higher but all At&t customers can't record shows ahead of time anymore. At&t now only allows us to setup recording of a show a few hours before the show however most people WORK and have children and busy lives therefor aren't in front of the TV a few hours ahead of any showtime whereas before we could look ahead many hours even days/weeks to schedule upcoming shows we wanted! We tried using At&t's search option and it didn't come up that way either and it's not on demand, therefor it's impossible for most people to record this show!! We had to watch it on our black box/android box. We did however purchase this show on Amazon in an attempt to try and help its ratings in hopes it will stay on TV but its not likely what most people are going to do. At&t's has the worst on demand services for its high tier customers.
