  • Ending too contrived for a show with a political bent. Need more Asian American players.

    The Madam President part was somewhat convincing. The story line was way too contrived. The war on drugs is a sham. Without a more progressive way to reduce the demand beyond just throwing addicts in prison, killing the supply side only enriches the drug lords.

    A more nuanced ending with ambiguities of the war on drugs would have been more interesting.

    There was one Asian speaking role. No Asian extras in the background. Darn. There goes my pay day.

    The Asian speaking role goes to Laura, played by Hiro Ambrosino. She has dialogue with Madam President's daughter.

    Surely, Madam President Geena Davis, doubling as a co ex-prod has heard of General Eric Shinseki, the maverick General who testified in Congress about troop numbers needed to win the peace in Iraq.
