Better than I expected, commercials horrible.

Watching the trailers for that show I thought it was going to be absolutely horrible, but I ended up watching the first episode anyway, because I personally watch a lot of political TV shows (even bad ones.) It was good timing on the networks part: year long shows are on break, spring shows just ended and most other summer shows didn't start when this show first aired. I was quite surprised at how good it was. It has a mix of a lot of different categories: political thriller, comedy,romance, and sci-fi. The intro is pretty funny and original too. Everybody calling this show mediocre or bad have to remember this is summer broadcast networks usually air absolute garbage and reality television during the summer. Which is why I'm giving this show a 9/10. I probably wouldn't give this show that score if it was on cable or premium cable or aired during the fall to spring time slot.
