  • 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.

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

  • 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.

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

  • look likes USA is going after some Emmys

  • 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.

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

  • I am SO there! Can’t wait!

  • 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.

  • Can’t wait… love Sigourney Weaver!

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

  • 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…
