    • EPISODE: RIGHT OF THE BOOM-2/21/2016

      I dirty bomb explodes at a conference where Henry and the children are attending. Henry is exposed, but is ok after treatment. I am beginning to wonder if this series is going to have a name change. Going from MADAM SECRETARY to madam secretary and HER SPY HUSBAND. I thought the series was about the secretary in the working of her department. But, we get more children items from football to drugs. Then there was Henry basically forcing the foreign military student to spy and then hanging him out to dry. If this series is going this new way, then maybe it is time for re-runs on USA network.moreless
    • A pleasant surprise

      I tuned into this show after several episodes had already aired. But I was intrigued by the trailers so I started watching. I am pleasantly surprised that I enjoy it so much. Tea Leoni and Tim Daly are truly captivating. And the supporting cast does an excellent job. a fan and intend to continue watching until it gets taken off the air as so many truly good shows often are. Keep up the good work!moreless
    • Awesome!

      This show is very realistic and captivating! It is one of my favorites!!

      Can someone please tell the writers of this show that the kind of people who enjoy watching political dramas don't need the extra spy crap or for them to DUMB everything down. They could even watch a few award winning political dramas for tips or please email me directly and I can list everything you are doing wrong by cake decorating a good idea.
    • Nice show

      I actaully enjoy this show as it actually shows there is a family behind as well and not just going from one catastrophe after the next episode wise.
