The pilot is up on Hulu, for benefit of Breaking Bad fans and others who missed it. Excellent starring performance from Siguourney Weaver. But on seeing this, it is no wonder that Sebastian Stan is in this, because this fictional world is very much like Kings. It is plainly directly analogous to real world people, yet it also plainly is not. Weaver is Hillary, divorced from Bill. Ellen Burstyn is a cross between Miz Lillian and Betty Ford. The sons are fictional, as we can tell from the lurid purple they are outlined in. Adrian Pasdar is Obama Lite, in several senses of the word. Carla Gugino is the girl who learns better, a feminist version of that Brock boy who wrote a bio of Hillary. There's plenty of melodama but the feminist theme is hit hard.
