It is the story of the secretary of state, former First Lady, who decides to run against her own party in two years, and the problems this causes in the life of her two sons and her ex husband.
The West Wing ended I was empty, but I'm sure I wasn't alone, most of us have that one show that defines us, that makes all other shows in comparison just blend and uninteresting. For me this show was the first, and up to this point, the only one that compared to that Washington feeling that The West Wing gave me when I saw its seven seasons. Now, I was very sad when it got canceled, there was a cliffhanger of course, but it also wrapped up in many ways, so the six episodes alone are still wonderful to watch and re-watch. It is essentially a long movie, mini-series, but I do wish there was more. This was the show where I fell in love with Sigourney Weaver, and her character portrays how politics is still very much a male driven game, even when clearly there are far more qualified people out there. While seeing the show, or reading my review, you will have noticed the similarities in the life of the Clinton's and the show... But, it is a great story, isn't it?
I highly recommend it to anyone who: is a Weaver fan; likes political shows; enjoys historical fiction; likes drama :D and finally, to anyone who wants to enjoy a quality TV show that has a beginning, a middle and an end. This is one of the good ones!
Until the next item on my list!
