Geena Davis is superb. Donald Sutherland is perfectly cast for his role as shrewd politician bent on pulling the rug out from under Geena Davis, who so far at least, manages to elegantly land on her feet. Lots of fancy footwork here, quite literally, with the Commander in Chief dancing with the Soviet head of state. Excellent family friendly television which is also believable.
I found the serious to be very interesting and very much like real politics. Donald Sutherland and Geena Davis both play there characters very well. It would not be the same if Sutherland was not in it. It is worth watching.
