Great series - from start to finish. You can only learn so much about the Executive Branch of Government from history and civics class in school. Although obviously dramatized for entertainment value, I found this series, from start to finish, to be a great teacher of the inner workings of the presidential staff's day to day activities. Who works for whom and so on. I really love this series and would recommend it to anyone who has the least bit of interest in the political genre.
This is one of the best shows I've ever seen. I have a better understanding as to how difficult it is to make political change, no matter how much the desire is to do so, and this was a group I agree with. There is much depth to each episode, showing the extreme complication in running this country as well as being a force in the world. I just can't say enough about this program, how much I enjoyed it as well as how much I learned.
I agree with Dana H. completely! The entire series offers the absolute best inside view of Washington's inner workings in TV history. It holds it's own alongside feature films like "Primary Colors" and "Thirteen Days" as one of the finest politically based entertainments ever - basically pulls no punches and is amazingly educational while maintaining dramatic integrity throughout!
