This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. I very much enjoyed the first episode of Madame Secretary - but almost solely because of Leoni's performance. Not that anyone else was bad, just pushed to obvious supporting roles at the moment. The story itself was a bit cookie cutter, though I loved the pointed commentary made about how fashion will push out content in the daily news cycle. The one part I wasn't sure about, was the whole "conspiracy" within the WH bit. It seems gimmicky to me - I'm hoping for more "West Wing" than "Scandal".
With a cast including Bebe Neuwirth, Zeljko Ivanek, and Keith Carradine, and some promising lesser knowns, I'm hoping the writing will be up to the potential.… Full Review »
Well acted, especially by Leoni who brings a nice balance to the part. I felt the Chief of Staff as the "opposition" was a bit forced and rang a touch false and the depth of th ed storyline left room for improvement. But the basics were there, especially in the casting of her staff.… Full Review »
I have read many of the Outlander book series and was very excited to hear that it was being made into a tv series. That being said I am truly disapointed after watching several episodes. You can not have a series of this magnitude with a weak leading lady. Caitriona Balfe is not a strong enough lead for the show and she does not get the essence of the Claire character. I cringe everytime she uses the expletive "Jesus H. Roosevelt Christ" and really find her unbelievable. There are so many talented actresses out there who would perhaps even look a little more like the book version of Claire that I am truly shocked that she was cast.… Full Review »
Don't waste any time, is just an american/english propaganda. They talk lots about patton, mcarthur and the american participation in the war , always good way. I am ok with that, but not mentioning general Zhukov who won in moscu, stalingrad, leningrad and Berlin among others is just a crime, which I think can't be just ignorance, so that means is deliverate and dishonest, to serious for a channel called "history channel".
At the end of the last episode an american senator says "no one can deny the soviets helps us to defeat nazis, but is also true they had their eyes put in the post world war" !! hahahahaahahahha what is this, a joke??? where the americans had their eyes put??? americans entered into the war when they had no other option, and when the war was already won by the soviets, who did the dirty job!! I am not a fan of stalin, but the truth is the truth, americans helped soviets to win, no the other way, in fact they had won the war even without day D invasion. Don't waste time, just american propaganda.… Full Review »
They should have called this show Battlegate Galactica because it was obvious from day one that they wanted to copy what people loved about that show.
This series can join Star Trek Enterprise in the group of spin offs that killed their franchises.
The saddest thing is that the last episode was actually fairly good, everything else was tedious and boring.… Full Review »
