Audience Reviews for Madam Secretary: Season 4

  • May 07, 2018
    This is the best show on tV. It often reflects real life and the cast and the writing is solid and believable. Few errors and one finds himself immersed in the day to day workings of the White house, or what the white house used to be like. Obviously, it's an idealized view of the workings of the government, especially compared to the government of today.

    I watched the first series. It had a glimour of hope. There was some great kind of potential to it. Today I watched the first episode of the 4th season. It really hasn't changed. Today however, I also chose to change my toilet flushing tablets from blue to pink. The pink apparently has the smell of rose blossom and strawberry. Still to smell that. However, back to the program. I have no idea why this has made it to Series 4. It is inspid, unrealstic and totally unatural representation of what could have been a really insightful insight into what it is to be a woman in government. Instead the producers, writers and directors have chosen to candy floss the whole experience with easy wins and difficult situations with easy wins, whilst at the same time having a theology professor as her husband providing a constant moral, if out dated, compass. Add some whiny kids with 'issues' (presumably cos their mom is the new 'Oprah'), and there we have it. Give it a miss.

    From world affairs to family dynamics, this is one of the great dramas in perhaps the golden age of great dramas.
