Episode Summary

EDIT
Urquhart is the perfect politician. Impeccably diplomatic, charming, admired, trusted and respected by all. He has faithfully served his party without question, but events are about to spark his ambition. When the long-standing Prime Minister dies, the hunt is on to find a replacement. Urquhart is a hard-line Conservative and believes in strong leadership. In his eyes, none of the choices measures up. Naturally, he keeps his opinions to himself, but as Party Whip, his support is valuable, and he is courted by all the candidates. He must tread warily, as supporting the loser could cost him his position. Supporting the winner, however, could land him a Cabinet position.moreless

    I think it's time someone left a comment on tv dot com.



    While tripe like "The Vampire Diaries" have 300 reviews within an hour of airing, this classic goes 24 years until someone takes the time to leave one stinking review.



    I decided to check this out after watching the first season of the new House of Cards, starring Kevin Spacey.



    Fans of the current version of HoC will appreciate just how clever the original was. Everything seems to fit very nicely, and everyone is perfectly cast, especially the cocaine snorting Roger, who you'll recognize as Peter Russo from the current incarnation.



    I look forward to watching the other 11 episodes of this ahead-of-it's-time series.moreless
