VERDICT – 1/5

 
PROS –
1) Emma Thompson as Katherine Newbury is the only saving grace of this one time watch.

 
CONS –
1) The Devil Wears Prada (2006) revisited.
2) I would not even try to explore the socio-political message hidden in the plot of this average movie.

 
QUOTE –
Katherine: You can’t just download your emotional state onto me and hope that your honesty will somehow exonerate you.

VERDICT – 1/5

 

PROS –
1) Good Concept (but awful execution)
2) Season Finale (ENDORSE-Scene)
3) Nicknames
4) Dan’s Monologue (The Last Selina)

 

CONS –
1) Neither “Yes Minister” nor “House Of Cards”.
2) Boring
3) Jonah is the only recognizable character although annoying but enough to pull the show from disaster.
4) No reason to watch Season 2
5) Too much cursing does not make it cool.

 

Quote –
Dan: Remember that name. No one will want to call their child by that name. There are no more Adolfs. Soon there will be no more Selinas. You are looking at the last Selina. The Selina who killed America.
