i like political shows, but this is one of the most watered down types i have seen in a while. the election stuff was good, but then it moves onto the political issues and kind of gets lost in what its trying to do. There are several better political shows out there - The first 4 seasons of the West Wing, Boss and the thick of it are all vastly superior
Political Animals is not on a mind blowing serious that will have anyone who watches addicted, but it is also a very legit, mature, and behind the scenes look at how elections/etc really are. I absolutely love the series and am beyond ready for another season. CONTINUE PLEASE!!(:
I had so much hope for the new show Political Animals because of the excellant cast. Unfortunately, the story line has the actors acting like a bunch of bastards and animals. The political aspect is so minimal, it is a farce.
I was hoping for more politics and less blantant sin.
Someone made reference to George Bush. The better reference would have been to the Clintons or to a lesser degree Carter.
However much as I, as a non-American, like a Southern drawl, how realistic is it for Americans to have elected a President like Bud Hammond, who comes accross as uneducated and cannot be understood by the rest of the world?
