Re: the spy/assassin genre resurgence

Not sure about movies but as for TV shows to be fair, 24 had its share of corrupt government officials all throughout the Bush II years, with perhaps the biggest and certainly the best IMO being President Logan, a Republican president, and when that storyline went down I think Jack was speaking vicariously for a lot of anti-Bush people when he told Logan, 'you're going to see justice today Mr. President!" Man, that was an awesome scene. Conversely, the first President Palmer was the show's best President and most noble, and he was a Democrat.

Two more shows that didn't get mentioned were Undercovers and Rubicon. I know Undercovers has been canceled and I think Rubicon was canceled too.
