Love spy, intrigue, lawyer, D.C. Govt shows. HATE so-called Reality shows. At least I know what I like is fiction.

This looks like the most interesting new show NBC has ordered this year. Spies. Family drama. Scott Cohen. Three solid reasons to tune in. I’m disappointed this is being used as a mid-season replacement. I would have thought this show would get the Monday @10 slot after Blacklist wraps for mid-season break. I’ve seen the trailer for State of Affairs, and it didn’t exactly grab me. Hopefully I’m wrong and NBC isn’t wasting there best lead-in on a dud…
