Highest Rated: Ep 6, Season 1
The show ends its first season with its first truly shocking moment and its best episode yet.
The threatened destruction of California! A punchy ex-president! Pot-smoking grandma! All that and more!
For the first time in its now four-episode run, Political Animals shows its constraints as a limited series (we’re in the home stretch now, people).
Ciaran Hinds’ Bud Hammond has become the punching bag of Political Animals, encapsulating the show’s worst trait: caricature without either making a statement or creating a compelling character.
