In Season Two, Vice President Selina Meyer (Louis-Dreyfus) is even more concerned about leaving a legacy within the current administration. Oftentimes sidelined, she steps up into a major power position in a crisis that involves rescuing hostages from the grips of a terrorist cell.Read more ›
he faced two huge problems in bringing this show to the USA. one, we have a different political system to satirize. although we are both democracies, the structures of our governments are quite different. two, british humor is different and is an acquired taste for non-Britains.
some are complaining about the swearing in this american show. it is NOTHING in comparison to the swearing in the british show. Malcolm, the lead character in the UK sho,w is a swearing machine compared to Selena in the American show.
this second season hits the show's stride. it builds upon and improves the already quite good first season. one of the very best comediennes in the business, Julia Louise-Dreyfus, plays Selena, vice president of the United States. She'd like to be president but it is hard to achieve that when the president acts for the most part as if you don't even exist. Selena is vain, independently wealthy, unsuited for marriage but quite lusty, and only informed on many issues as well as her staff briefs her on them. Any sane person would hate to be dependent on her staff as their primary concern, to a person, is keeping Selena's image bright for their futures, rather than really knowing anything about issues of the day.
what this show satirizes, just like its UK counterpart did, is the downside of democracies.Read more ›
One thing that I think is good with the show it's not a "serial" type show like Homeland or Dexter. It's not a show you need to watch completely in order and each episode sort of stands on its own. As always with television shows like this I recommend the watching in order style of viewing but this show is a little more lenient in that regard.
I'm also happy to report that this season has two more episodes in season one. I love that television nowadays focuses more on quality than quantity with the shows they make. I still think for 10 episodes charging more than $30 is overpriced but what can you do.
Thanks for reading!
