I have only seen two partial episodes of this series, but I have to say, I Like It!
I enjoy the cast. I am a fan of Téa Leoni and Bebe Neuwirth. However, what has really made me want to watch this series is how the characters, Madam Secretary, especially, deal with the issues that arise.
This Sunday’s episode, the whole dealing with the teenage daughter, well, it hit home. Hard.
How she responded to the daughter…the writers nailed it!!
She basically told her self-righteous daughter that things aren’t always so black and white. The decisions that we parents have made. The mistakes and/or actions in our past.
She tells her that life is complicated. That it is about experiences. A great spiel, really.
The daughter…she’s packed and leaving. Not without hurting her Mom with words, of course. She lets her know that those experiences are what she is trying to do. It is understood that the daughter believes she can and will do better than her conniving mother.
I do apologize for the lousy synopsis, but believe me, some of the last few posts that I have done have been off my phone, and it is no walk in the park! Let me tell you!!
So I do apologize. I do this because I realize that this is quite possibly the only way I can get to blogging 😉
I do ask you bear with me.
Getting back to Madam Secretary…as the scene ended, it took me to various exchanges with my eldest.
I shared this with my husband, and sure enough, as I said that I was sort if reminded of my Pumpkin, he laughed, “Only Sort of!?!”
And as he and I had continued, it made me quite grateful that Our Heavenly Father is so patient, loving, and merciful!!!
wonder how old I’ll be before I stop having to add, “I was an arrogant teenager who thought I knew better than God” gets dropped from my confession list! Yup, so glad God has tonnes of patience! We all play that girls part far too often in life.

LoL. I actually trying blogging from my phone as well.
I like her as an actress, so I did want to check this one out. It is so tough keeping up with the number of great shows out. We have not even started Sons of Anarchy yet. We started The Blacklist recently. What I like about shows comes down to going against the usual formula.
For instance, if you are going to give me a scene, where someone from the leading cast has lost a loved one–make the emotions look genuine. I do not get this in a lot of shows, but when it happens, I can tell immediately. When they continue going with the regular formula, I know what will happen before it happens, and that is not a great feeling. LoL. We play this “game” at home, and we laugh each time I get something right in the show.

Thanks for stopping by, reading, and above all commenting! 🙂
You know, I tried The Blacklist, but since it started up after The Dome, I just couldn’t. 😉 I was too upset about losing The Dome again 😉
