 Madam Secretary: The Complete Series

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 4/10/20

This is an excellent political drama that also has a lot of action and family drama. If you loved West Wing, you might like this as well. Téa Leoni stars as the Secretary of State who then becomes President. Unfortunately, life didn't imitate art since we still don't have a female president in real life.

The show has some great actors in its huge cast, including Tim Daly, Bebe Neuwirth, Željko Ivanek, and Keith Carradine. They real a really amazing ensemble.

Conservative viewers may not like it because it does address many issues that they may consider to be "too liberal." I've never found it to be so. I think it sets a good balance of showing all views as much as possible. It's not really the liberal fantasy of "The West Wing."

The DVD set has many wonderful extras. If you missed the show on air, here is your opportunity to rediscover this excellent series with its many fine actors and stories.


Madam Secretary: The Final Season, Madam Secretary: The Complete Series

Street Date: April 7, 2020

Format: DVD

Description: Stars Téa Leoni as Elizabeth McCord, the shrewd, determined secretary of state who drives international diplomacy and circumvents protocol as she negotiates global and domestic issues, both at the White House and at home. A college professor and a brilliant former CIA analyst who left for ethical reasons, Elizabeth returned to public life at the request of President Conrad Dalton, who values McCord’s political leanings, deep knowledge of the Middle East, flair for languages and ability to not just think outside the box, but not even acknowledge there is a box. McCord’s team includes her chief of staff, Jay Whitman; policy advisor, Kat Sandoval; speechwriter, Matt Mahoney; press coordinator, Daisy Grant; and charming assistant, Blake Moran. As McCord debates third-world problems, confronts issues related to her decision to run for president, finesses foreign dignitaries at work and does battle with the president’s combative chief of staff, Russell Jackson, that’s just a warm-up for when she goes home to her supportive husband, theology-professor-turned-intelligence-operative Henry, and their three children, where “politics” and “compromise” take on new meaning.
