The return of Representative Francis Underwood.
February 1st, 2014.
You would think I am getting paid to talk this up, but sadly, I am not.
I have peers who swear by West Wing. I can see that there are plenty of really relevant scenes, but this show is completely engrossing, and topical, too! Incredibly topical... you have political pandering, intrigue, (illegal behavior), and maneuvering for a coup within Congressional leadership. It's great viewing.
I mean, this is one of Obama's favorite shows!
For instance, in episode seven, there is a great scene that can be shown in class detailing a Presidential Bill Signing, and the intrigue and pettiness that goes into it.
However, it is not for the classroom due to adult topics. So, figure out a way to put clips in without totally exposing yourself to risky business from your admins.
Anywho, free to watch the entire Season 1 now, and Season 2 on 2-1-14. I can't wait. I better have all my lessons up to date.
I don't have Sirius XM radio, but many of you do. I am sure that many of you already know about this, but it looks like a good resource to follow on social media and occasional check in to find out what they have in terms of sound bites.
So, I am going to be putting P.O.T.U.S. on my newsfeed and see how it goes.
