The show is pretty good, albeit not too realistic (no lobbyists? really?)...still, Sigourney Weaver looks damn good for her age

Real American politics are a lot dirtier than they are portrayed in this show and things are run a lot differently. I have a feeling this is one of those political propaganda things with the media so I feel really bad watching this but the show is actually really good so I guess I'll tune in on the next episode

Great show, yes it is a long show, which I welcome really. Is not that there is a lot going on, just a person trying to deal with both her family and her job, and the way they intertwined. If we can deal with life in "reality", you sure can handle the bits and pieces of this TV show.

This was a great Show, even though it was a mini series, it had a lot of potential. the characters are so 3 dimensional

She is a lot more attractive than Billary, and Ciaran Hinds is a great modern British actor.Too bad its a soap opera.

A show plugging a political feminist plot toward a "matriarchal society" .... I'm all for that. A very well written and executed tv program. I hope its a success.

Really good show. Got hooked after the first few episodes. I can feel that i will only get better and better. Sigourney Weaver does a fantastic job as always. 4/5.

Still enjoying the show and still has enough interest to keep me watching. Each character is flawed in some way but collectively they come through strong. While Weaver seems a bit off her game with her acting showing signs of wear mind you just my opinion, she has moments that shine. The writing is better than most of what is on the three networks and I am in the hopes only gets better. While this isn't the political powerhouse show Boss with Kelsey Grammer is(that show rocks)it still has lots of merit on it's own.

weaver is outstanding in her role, as always. clearly, this is not a true representation of politics, but it is a pretty good watch. 7/10.

Topic is not easy for script writing. Show is a good to see the unseen parts of the politicians and their families. Plus political ambitions, greed, etc with great Cast. Really enjoying.

I watched about 45 mins of this at work, and I really liked it! it def. has potential.. if it wasn't obvious Weaver has the main character Mrs Barrish channeling Clinton! love her.

I can't believe I watched the entire thing, ugh so stupid. Why do I do this to myself? The acting is absolutely not good; there's definitely something amateurish about this show. I was attracted it by Sigourney Weaver but you can immediately see how weirdly off her acting is. I guess I kept watching for Carla Gugino. I also do not understand what this show is trying to say about infidelity. Three couples on the show; in all of them the males cheat, yet the women stay with them. And please do not see this show as ultra-feminist *head in hands*. You call it feminist because the women like their jobs and choose them over their family lives, but it is women NOT men being depicted as having to struggle with the family-work balance (for men a career focus goes without saying-show me a scene where a man sits on the floor and cries his career focus will lead to him dying alone, show me). I feel the same way about men encouraging women to seek better for themselves as I do white skinned people encouraging colored people to seek better for themselves- it's patronizing and repugnant. Ughh, must go deal with the self loathing I have from watching this awful crap to the end.
