  • Classified tearjerker for ME because I'll be crying when the show is gone!

    After seeing this episode, and how great it was, I see that the person most responsible in the weaker storylines of Commander in Chief, that later trasferred into lower ratings, was indeed Steven Bochco. This episode felt very "Rod Lurie" and brought me back to the show I fell in love with back in September. Dee Johnson did a great job with an excitement and nail-biting episode. Here we have the President gone for a day and a chance to see what Templeton would do given the power he so much desires. We see that he would in no way make as good of a President as Mac. But now, we're down to the wire and Commander in Chief will soon be gone. With such great performances given in this episode, I'd be surprised if ABC doesn't go back on their decision to cancel the show. They would be complete morons not to renew if for a second season!!
