Commander in Chief - Geena Davis - ABC

Hey guys! I know that a lot of other tv series have threads here... I didn't see one for Commander in Chief, so I decided to create one myself!

The pilot show premiered today with Geena Davis as vice president/president Mackenzie Allen and Donald Sutherland as speaker of the house.

Did anyone see the show today? WHat do you guys think of it? I think it's a really good show, so far.... can't wait til next week!

I didn't watch it.. I see your avatar. Was tonight America's Next Top Model? I hope I didn't miss it.

I never got into West Wing so I doubt I'll get into Commander in Chief... I'm more reality shows and CSI, Without A Trace type shows... (crime solving ones)

I taped it on my DVR and when it came on "LIVE" I was going to flip it real quick but it was so good that I watched the first 15 minutes until I had to go out. I continued to tape it and will watch it later.

I can tell that this is a really good **well written** drama. Geena Davis is great and the cast is great. I was ticked when her staff wanted her to resign when they thought the current prez was going to die. I thought that they would love it for a women to become prez, until reality hit me, with the "reality written dialogue". They were not behind her at all.

I am going to like this show because I want a women prez someday and I can pretend through this drama that we have one for now.

I hate to say this, but Geena Davis looks much more... how to put this... weathered ... eroded .... experienced? than I remembered

She hit a wall, hon! Plus, she's like really old now, like late 40s maybe and she just had some kids. Long gone is the young little thing in "Earth Girls are Easy."

And why is it that when women reach a certain age, they pile on the big red lips thing like gangbusters? She looked like the avatar for creep, for Christ's sake! I always liked Geena, and in fact "Beetlejuice" is one of my top ten movies of all time- I just watch it every time it's on. Geena looked more like Sylvia Sydney than anything from Thelma and Louise...

There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.

I can't wait to see what happens next week!

From the pilot episode we find out that the president and her daughter have a very rocky relationship, kinda like real moms and daughters do. I like that dynamic, they portray Davis as a 'real' mom... Next week, the media finds the daughters diary and she has some not so nice things to say about the president...

Donald Sutherland is perfect for his role as speaker! When he says to Geena Davis, "I'm right behind you" after her first speech to Congress, (where the teleprompter 'mysteriously' stopped working), it comes out as both comforting and threatining.

If anyone hasn't seen it yet, the pilot comes on again Saturday at 10pm on ABC.

I think it's just meant to be threatening.

I can't believe the jerk cut out the teleprompter. How 3rd grade was that?
