Seriously, Sebastian Stan and James Wolk (http://www.newnownext.com/sebastian-stan-talks-grindr-political-animals/06/2012/)together in a series? I will watch just for that. And, yea, Sigourney Weaver as NOT Hillary Clinton.

Political Animals (http://www.usanetwork.com/series/politicalanimals/?__source=ggl|sigourney+weaver+political+animal|Si gourney+Weaver|G_PoliticalAnimals1.0_Talent&sky=ggl|sigourney+weaver+political+animal|Sigourne y+Weaver|G_PoliticalAnimals1.0_Talent) starts July 15.

I liked the premiere quite a bit.

Is this a reboot of the BBC's "Party Animals?"

I was kind of iffy on the premiere, but try never to judge a show solely by the first episode.

I thought the Bill Clinton caricature was a bit over the top and, y'know, I had to grit my teeth at the bad son being gay--although they present a good argument for why he might have gone off the rails.

I love Sigourney tho, and even if she seemed stiff in a few scenes, she brings a certain gravitas to everything she does.

I have hopes for the series.

I really enjoyed the pilot, though some of the issues seemed a lot for one show. I'm hoping it doesn't get too over the top. I'll definitely be looking forward to the second episode this weekend.:)

Yeah, but I've never heard of them before I'd ventured into this thread.

Yeah, I have no idea who they are even after clicking the links, so don't feel bad, Ben.

ETA: Oh, man! Why did you say Carla Gugino was in it? Everyone else is meh but Carla. :)

Heh...I suppose there are tons of actors I've never heard of (but glad to bring them to your attention!). And James Wolk hasn't had a great track record. Stan is everywhere lately tho--he co-starred in a big budget action flick (Capt America) and was a featured player on a top rated tv-show last season (Once Upon A Time).

Carla and Sigourney had some of the best scenes together. Unfortunately, the character Carla portrayed had to suffer through some ridiculously sudsy personal drama in the pilot. Hopefully the show will relagate that definitely to a second or third tier for the rest of the series.

Oh, THAT Sebastian Stan. O.o. Oddly enough, I saw Captain America twice and still don't recognize him from the pictures posted.

I missed last night's episode. Does anyone know where I can find it (i.e. Hulu or iTunes)?

If it's on basic cable, I'm surprised it hasn't shown up another 453,478 times already.

I can't decide if I want to watch this anymore... I also kind of wish each episode was 2 hours long and not one.

It has just occurred to me that Sebastian Stan is the Mad Hatter in "Once Upon a Time."
