  • The Politician [Netflix]



    Anybody been watching? Iím four episodes in and hooked! Another Ryan Murphy/Brad Falchuk show about a high school kid whoís convinced heíll one day be President and all the dramas that go with getting there.

    It looks good but I’ve heard mixed reviews about the show, and the main character is likened to Rachel Berry, which is off-putting. What a fantastic cast though.

      I loved this, got totally hooked! Itís very dramatic with lots of twists! I particularly loved Jessica Lange

          Very mediocre in my opinion. Murphy doesn‘t live up a single bit to his abilities.
          The characters are overly weird, Jessica Lange as the mentally disturbed grandmother is unbearable to watch and the overall vibe is very ‚outworldly‘.

            I started watching too, just finished the first episode. I'm loving it so far. I think it's extremely entertaining.

              I binge-watched this in one day. I thought it was fantastic! I'm so excited for S2.

                I accidentally binged the whole thing in 1 go. It was quite short!
                Loved it from start to finish. I was simply enormously entertained by the plot, acting, cinematography and the great satirical humour. It was hilarious! The Dusty/Infinity/Ricardo moments were priceless, I laughed my *ss off.

                  I thought it was terrible! I was expecting a fun, funny show and didn’t laugh once.

                    It was really watchable, I’m glad they moved away from the school in the last episode as that was getting a bit samey. Bring on season two! I hope this runs for many years as there’s a lot of mileage following Payton’s journey.

                      Won’t watch Season 2. I think 8 episodes were just tolerable.

                      I’d have loved to see more Gwyneth Paltrow & Brigitte though.

                          Same! The setup for season 2 was excellent.

                              Just finished binge watching this over the holidays! Loved it. I agree with [MENTION=834]Thriller[/MENTION] it was good to move it away from the high school setting toward the end.

                              It was over the top most of the time which made some of it ridiculously hilarious.
