  3. kavyn says:

  4. USA_Bill says:

    This looks ridiculously good! CANNOT WAIT…

  5. Tim says:

    Looks like it’s well written and has great actors but I’ve never been interested in political dramas. I may give it a try though.

  6. mst3k says:

    Since i watch every USA original show (xcept L&O CI) count me in… I feel shame.

    • USARocks!! says:

      I am in the same boat as you, there isn’t an original show on USA i do not watch!! and it seems i have got one more!! i share your shame lol.

      • mst3k says:

        Yup, got hooked on Monk and Psych and I have literally never missed one since… Oh how many hours I have spent.

  7. Im in with just the cast how amazing they are.

  8. Greenerpuddles says:

    A political show with no cursing and no full frontal male/female nudity. Where’s the authenticity?

  9. Leo says:

    This looks amazing!

  10. jesse says:

    Wow, this looks awesome. Love the cast!!

  11. tahina says:

    I hope they wont rip off real political figures like HC here and her husband’s sex scandals that we know about. But sometimes its inevitable. Ill watch and later discuss.

  12. Sad says:

    Looks great except for the actor doing the Al Pacino impression. I won’t be able to watch the show with a straight face.

  13. ggny says:

    look likes USA is going after some Emmys

  14. Cash says:

    I dunno. Looks like quality stuff, but considering the election season we’re going into, I think the very last sort of show I’m going to watch in my free time will be one that focuses on White House politics.

  15. Zack B says:

    I’m in.

  16. Dennis says:

    the Finder would be great on USA

    • smidnite says:

      Yes it would; but this is interesting too. Now which networks would you like to see pick up Breakout Kings?

  17. wooster182 says:

    I have such a crush on this cast that it’s ridiculous!

  18. Lorie says:

    I am SO there! Can’t wait!

  19. MichaelS says:

    Can’t wait for Political Animals…It’s basically an unauthorized fictionalization of the Clinton’s but with more one-night stands, and 2 sons instead of a daughter. However, it looks like a good miniseries, and one that should win Emmys. Sigourney Weaver is awesome.

  20. matt says:

    Can’t wait… love Sigourney Weaver!

  21. Joe says:

    looks good and different from the other USA shows. plus i’ll check out anything with the beautiful Carla Gugino in it

  22. Claudelu says:

    look nice cant wait :D

  23. Margaret says:

    yesss. so in!! i LOVE james wolk, i hope he can latch onto a tv series that actually sticks!! (RIP lonestar) bc he is awesome!

  24. Babygate says:

    Oh wow! this looks really good! Count me in. But why July? :-(

  25. Justin says:

    I’m usually not iinto politics, let alone political shows, but USA network has a pedigree for good shows that I watch, which is pretty much all of their original shows. Plus, the trailer looks decent enough. So, I’ll give this one a try.

  26. M says:

    Why not avoid confusion and just go ahead and call it “The Clintons?”

  27. Watch Ciaran Hinds…He is one fine actor. I think this show has the potential to be amazing..I hope it lives up to the hype and I hope we can get in the UK.

  28. James E says:

    Wow, looks like CRAP! Although, I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. 90% of tv shows these days are crap. So, it should blend in well…
