Summary of Season 1 (2005) - 2 discs

Geena Davis is the United States' first female commander in chief in this groundbreaking drama. Although the dying president encourages Vice President Allen (Davis) to resign and let the conservative Speaker of the House (Donald Sutherland) take over, she won't quit. Her refusal to relinquish her post makes history -- and helps mobilize her political enemies. Although the series was short-lived, Davis's performance earned her a Golden Globe.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the show features content that focuses on gender and politics. There is very little to object to other than comments made by Mac's adversary, who in the first episode jokes about human rights, a woman's ability to hold higher office, and menopause. One major plotline features a Nigerian woman threatened with violent death for having a child out of wedlock. A scene depicting her rescue that begins in a Nigerian prison is a little disturbing.
