  • Another excellent episode.

    Another great episode.

    We can now see that the relationship between Mac and her Husband and the rest of the family is under strain.

    It would be a very difficult situation to be in.

    Mac is a very strong character and I would love for her to really stick it up Templeton!
  • a good show for the people

    i see this show because it makes me closeres to the reallity of been a president and what they have to go every day in their jobs. I said it befoere and say ot again this show has the makings to be the next west wing or even better. The writers make a good job shifting from topic to topic in every episode. The only thing thta i do not like is the caracter of speaker of the house and his agresivnes as is show to us by the writers because he wants the job of presidentmoreless

    Another great episode! I love that they took something Americans are experiencing in real-life (hurricane season), made it real, and showed the world how a President should really handle a crisis! (Mac gets up IMMEDIATELY when reading to the children) I know some viewers are getting tired of the family stories but I for one am loving them...Geena Davis as a mommy makes for a more endearing President and family show. If the show was all about politics it would only be 'The West Wing' sans a "wee-wee."moreless
  • An episode focused on the horrors of hurricanes.

    This was the sixth episode of the series. In it, the president must deal with two crisises, the hurricane and an oil spill. President Allen, though fictional, did a better job than George Bush. When there is trouble, instead of reading to children after hearing of a crisis, she took action. The fictional president really did her job well.



    It seems that the House Speaker is ganging up on her by making the President's friends become enemies.



    This script was well written and I can honestly say that the show is getting better and better. Good Job ABC for creating such a wonderful political show!moreless
  • Basically, I love every episode of Commander in Chief and plan to watch it until the end.

    I enjoyed this episode. The tension between the

    president and the first gentleman continues to

    bother me. I really like them as a couple and want them to get along. I am not worried about a

    separation or anything like that but ... I am concern about the closeness of the press sec. to the first gentleman. I hope that relationship remains clean. It is obvious that he loves the president very much but I think he feels neglected at times. As always, I love Geena Davis' performance as the president, mom and wife. GREAT SHOW!!!moreless
