Strange Turn of Events
Not quite what you would expect from this series, but it's a great thing to "not be too predictable." However, this season's "unpredictably" has left me scratching my head wondering "what just happened here?" Not the intrigue of Season 1-2, where it's painful to wait between episodes; I almost forget what the previous episode is about and why I loved it. It's like the writers wanted to take it somewhere they couldn't go. So now they're twisting and turning it back on course? Anyway, I will keep my rating fluid, and adjust up.. or down depending where it goes. 4 stars for now.
I started watching this on Netflix and just can't get enough. I was so excited when the new season started. It has depth and you feel like you are in the middle of chaos that surrounds these characters and their attempt to keep democracy flowing. I can't wait for the events of this new season.
One of the best shows on television. Outstanding cast!
Every season of Madam Secretary is fantastic. Smart dialogue, great storylines.
