I rather liked the movie, including the Washington segments. I was gratified to see that the marvelous Broadway theater actress, Cherry Jones, will be the president this season and that Bob Gunton, another oldtime Broadway guy, will be a regular, too. I will miss Powers Boothe, though, he is always marvelous when he plays charismatic but untrustworthy sleazeballs like Noah Daniels.
I agree that the movie was nothing extra but it looked good and more than held my interest. I particularly enjoyed the portrayal of the cowardly UN worker. It's clear that the writers are not sold on the UN.
For a lifelong substance abuser, Keifer Sutherland still looks amazingly good. Maybe doing some time for DUI did him some good, I hope so.
