News & Interviews for The Mayor: Season 1
It's here to subtly remind viewers of what politicians are meant to do, while entertaining them with clever humor and human stories.
The Mayor can be preachy and predictable, but is also spirited and reasonably amusing in this opening scene-setter.
All in all, it's one of the more promising debuts of the fall TV season. But it's also an expression of faith in a system, and a political future, that badly needs the hope.
This show needs to slow down, take a breath, develop the characters and most of all, make certain Hall is on screen most of the time. He's pure charisma. His show's a pure muddle.
With a talented cast, solid writing and an optimistic view, this series should flourish.
