doubt a nod to former President George W. Bush, Graves stars
Nick Nolte as a former POTUS (and was nominated for a Golden Globe
for his performance) who tries to reclaim his former Political glory
25 years after leaving the Oval Office. Featuring a stellar
supporting cast in Sela Ward, Ernie Hudson, Skylar Astin, Helene
Yorke, Chris Lowell, and Callie Hernandez, the show was a hit on the
Epix Channel (recently greenlit for a second second) and has now
found its way onto home video courtesy of Lionsgate. For fans of The
West Wing, this show is bound to entertain fans of Political
television and Politics in general, but may fail to impress as
heavily those who are not.

in standard definition with a 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen aspect
ratio and a lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 track, the presentation here is
pretty standard for DVD and nothing particularly impressive. A step
slightly above the original broadcast. As with anything, it could
benefit from a high def. release.
