    OHHHH Tonights ep was definitely full of humdingers..

    Spoiler:
    so the guy who survived just HAPPENED to hide out (or possibly did) in a refurbished 'get away' room that just so happened to have been remoddled 2 months ago into a bomb shelter. AND ALL those who sub-contracted on that room died?
    And now he is in line to be made VP?!!?

    Blondie (the republican senator) i am STILL seeing little to like about. BUT i am actually liking his chief of staff AND the dude press secretary...

    I loved the governors grilling the president.. I also feel bad for our 2 FBI agents knowing what they do and not knowing who they can trust..

    I liked the way Kirkland handled the interrogation, right up until he decided to go along with the demand to block all immigration. Yes, absolutely, close the borders and only let those who apply for legal entry in, and we can discuss accepting refugees, but simply blocking all immigration isn't right. Legal immigration is a cornerstone of this country, and he shouldn't have let that slide.

    And the parallel interrogation of the accused mastermind was a nice touch.

And now this one, ALSO democrat.

    Is it just me, or is there one heck of a willful bias there on that angle?
    Don't forget Scandal. They're Republicans, but not the kind we get these days. And Madam Secretary doesn't seem to be following the real world political spectrum. The most liberal thing they've done is talk about global warming, but not about what causes it but that is happening and thus bases should be built with the change in climate in mind to prevent deaths as a result of insufficient preparations. So I'll call that one neutral.

    Speaking of other TV shows, wasn't the President from The Last Ship also the secretary of Housing and Urban development? Gosh, those guys sure to have a much higher survival rate than the other cabinet members.

    Also, don't secretaries also have deputy secretaries? Wouldn't they fill in for the Cabinet in the mean time?

    I agree. While i agreed with the governors we need MORE border security, refugee vetting etc, a complete close down is not how we should go about things..

    Never even thought about that...

    Well, 3 eps into the new season and its going good, BUT this weeks episode was VERY heavy handed in its push that "illegal aliens = good, companies wanting to protect American workers = bad"..

    I'm behind on this series, but considering how far left ABC is, that is not a surprise.

    Strange, i don't see much if anything on their network that's Pro-right/conservative.. But they have a hell of a lot that's pro-leftist.

    I wouldn't say that. Consider Grey's Anatomy. Isaiah Washington (Jaha on "The 100") played a Doctor on that series. Sometime around 2006 or so, he apparently used an anti-gay slur directed towards a fellow cast member in a public location. The following year, he was released from the show and his character was written out of the show.

    For several years after that, ABC, and in particular, Grey's Anatomy was in heavy "mea culpa" mode, trying to appease the LBTQ crowd. They brought in several gay relationships into several series, including G.A. and some of those continued for several years. The blonde female pediatrician in GA is currently seeking a new gay partner, based on what I saw the last time I watched the show.

    ABC is certainly "politically aware".

    How can it all be about the money when they are trying to appease the LGBTQ crowd, who represent what, 2% at the most of the viewing public?

    Well, I've enjoyed the show from the beginning. I've enjoyed watching Kirkman develop as a character. I'm looking forward to the second half of season 2.
