I loved the first season of this show. It was epic, like
a Shakespearean play. The second season is still very good,
although it goes off the rails a bit and is not as tightly
written. The acting is still excellent.
The mayor's brain is still deteriorating, plus he's
taking drugs...he's hallucinating a lot. He's still trying
to keep everything together and not letting any know what's
happening to him. Some people do find out, though. He wants
to rush through all of his political plans so he can leave
behind a legacy, but he has that pesky reporter guy still
investigating him, and others.
The same basic group of people appear in the second
season, but with one great addition: Jonathan Groff plays
Kane's new aide, Ian, replacing the fired Kitty. He is
one sick puppy and really makes the show.
You want to make sure to buy this set. There are only 10
episodes of the season, but they are powerful. There
is just one feature, but it's fairly long and detailed, "The
King and His Court". It has all of the actors and other
people discussing the show. I enjoyed watching it. It's such
a shame there is no 3rd season!

brain disease, but it comes at a cost. Committed to his unorthodox agenda, Kane
cuts out the cancers within the political machine he helped build. As corrupt heads
