Show Summary

Madam Secretary explores the life of Elizabeth McCord, the shrewd, calculating, and extremely determined newly appointed Secretary of State who drives international diplomacy, battles office politics, and circumvents and ignores protocol as she negotiates worldwide issues, She is also a college professor and a brilliant former CIA analyst who left the agency for ethical and personal reasons. After the suspicious death of her predecessor. Elizabeth returns to public life at the President's behest. The President values her apolitical leanings, deep knowledge of the Middle East, flair for languages, and ability to not just think outside the box, but to not even acknowledge there is a box.

  • Why the ratings are so be above 8!!!!

    It is such a nice show. They work hard on developing a story, good cast with hardly any irritating character. Normally in good shows, there always come an annoying character. I just can't understand why the ratings are so low.

    I just hope this gets renewed for atlas another season
  • Family needs to go

    It is an ok show.. it is typical of most shows that has a female lead in power, they really work their sensitive side and how they care about everything. The one aspect that puts me off the show is the kids. Especially the eldest daughter. That the mother falls over herself to win approval is sickening. In the last episode the daughter announce that she was coming back home since the couch at her friends was lumpy. This after treating the mother like crap. I would have been 'you aint coming back unless you return to college or get a job.. and you will treat me with respect or pack up and leave' .. but no, we have to endue this horrid character.moreless
  • Show is ok but the family is so annoying !

    The show would be much better without the annoying husband and 3 kids. I hope to see less of them in the second season. Maybe they get killed in another plane crash like Marsh ?
  • Lame show

    She looks like a man with the manly shirts under her suits, if she wore something frilly and feminine, it might be worth watching
  • Not usually a TV person

    I'm not super into Hillary, for those who think this is a push (it has come to mind, esp the. Benghazi watching Tea makes gov't personnel more accessible in my mind--less plastic at heart, yet still stiff like we see on the outside. The writing is interesting--the way the secretary's family personalities fit is clever & the way the US gets out of some jams show that if Washington ever needs any "crazy ideas" they know who to call.

    From the sound from other reviews, i's need to be dotted and t's crossed to be overwhelmingly appreciated. Find some detail-oriented person to assist the director with concerns (the "French" lady, calling Somalia, etc). Do that and I think most people can hop on board (unless they want something less cerebral).

    **In my mind it's still a 10. Look forward to it every week. That's never happened before in my 29 years.moreless
