    I watched the entire series over the last two days.

    I found it engaging enough, I suppose. I had originally hoped for more biting satire, but it played mostly as soap opera. The political crises (Iran, Chinese sub) were really given the short shrift.

    I liked Bud and Grandma well enough. Both boys seem to be a couple of tools, IMHO. The main reporter was all over the map. Weaver was, of course, terrific.

    If they have a season 2 it makes sense to me that Elaine will challenge Vice President Jerkface for the nomination. He must be stopped. I think they'll leave the President dead.

    Overall I'd say an amusing summer diversion, with some very good moments.

    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    The bulimic wife showed up on Emily Owens MD the other day in episode three I suspect as a reocurring character.
