Just finished watching the first season of this.

Ok, being not an American, and not that up on US politic I might have missed a few things. But on the whole I really enjoyed it.
Up there with Aaron Sorkin's other work like the West Wing and Studio 60 (which should have had a second season).

I thought the writing was great and the cast amazing. Great humor at time and I'm guessing kicking the system over there?
Its clear that Aaron Sorkin is no fan of the Tea Party? And if half the things in the show are real quotes I can see why!!

Any of our US contingent fans?

Sadly I have not. I watched most of a couple of episodes, but never sat through a whole show. Not really my thing, to be honest. I absolutely despise political commentary, and the show was very heavy with it. That right there made it a major turn off to me. :(

Mind the gap.
