‘Madam Secretary’ may not be for everyone

Maggie Bushow, Staff Writer

The show “Madam Secretary” is full of drama, government problems, and even family issues. If you are the kind of person that likes drama and the issues in the government in our country, then this is the show for you. If you don’t want to even think about the government because it gives you a headache, then I would recommend you watch a different show.

“Madam Secretary” gives us examples of what goes on in our country every day, and we don’t even know it.

In the show, the main character is Elizabeth McCord who works as a CIA agent to the madam secretary. Elizabeth and her team do everything in their power to fix the problems in the world. It is not easy for Elizabeth because she is juggling her job and being a parent. She does her best to fix issues in the world, but it is harder to be there for her kids when they need her. Her job puts her family in danger, so they can’t have a real-life without being judged. Elizabeth’s husband is a professor and former marine, so he understands everything Elizabeth goes through. He supports her in every way he can. Her kid is somewhat disrespectful, but all kids on TV are rude.

When I was growing up, and to this day, I never talked back to my parents, but that’s different on TV. She has three kids, and all three of them have totally different personalities. The oldest child is Stevie and she likes to party and have fun. The second child is Alison. She is one of those kids that does good in school but not a geek and she loves to design clothes. Finally, the youngest is Jason. The best way to describe him is as the cool kid in school who gets in trouble a lot. All three kids support their parents.  Even if they are sometimes disrespectful to their parents, they always encourage their parents.
