Please stop posting.
I've been watching one episode a week. I think that allows for characters, stories etc to sink in the most and I have to say... there are a TON of holes in HofC.
While I like watching the politicking involved, I find it truly hard to believe that Francis is this successful a wheeler-and-dealer that he can not only successfully plan a move to unseat the Speaker, he does so really to get the Majority Leader ousted, he can out-move the POTUS, can out-wit the CoS, and no one expects him of duplicity or somehow pulling some strings? Also,he's that well-connected and doesn't know he's being passed up for SoS?
That was some *really* flimsy evidence the reporter chick used to get into Francis' house. "Hey, here's a photo of you allegedly checking out my ass." Yeah. That'll really make someone in power want to listen to you. Then her boss calls her a c-bomb and she doesn't have immediately file a lawsuit, but somehow tweets it and he isn't put on leave immediately?
Also, a white Democrat in the Deep South? lol.
There were some other things but I think overall its done well enough to make it enjoyable.
