THE SHORT VERDICT:
I really, really liked this.
Don’t be put off by the political nature of the premise. I’m not into political stories myself, but I found this easy to like.
It’s got a robust story, lots of great acting, a fast pace, a compelling conflict, strong character growth, chemistry between the leads and a strong romance.
This lent itself to back-to-back episodes, and I finished it very quickly. And I plan to revisit it for more.
