This show is a vast improvement over the endless line of political-TV dramas and crime thrillers they keep pumping out. Madam Secretary gives us great acting by the leads, especially Tea Leoni, with intelligent scripting and story lines, and it avoids the slick gratuitous violence and obligatory torture seen nightly in every prime time TV political and crime drama that modern audiences seem to get off on so much. My only single complaint is the unnecessary interplay between Daisy and Matt; Patina Miller overacts (as if she's real nervous and can't sit still), and the two were already fighting before we knew there was even something going on; either way, it is a rather irritating sideshow to the real story lines. The three kids need some more development, but all in good time. But overall, this is a very good new series and I hope they keep it going! Robert
