My friend Sue turned me on to the new Starz original series, Boss. It's stars Kelsey Grammer as the Mayor of Chicago, where all the wheeling and dealing of the city's politics are played out, all while the Mayor is suffering from and trying to hide a terminal illness (note-this is not a spoiler, you learn about his health within the first five minutes of the first episode). Oh man. This series is GOOD. Like, really good. Kelsey Grammer as Mayor Kane makes you forget all about his role as Frasier Crane. Every episode tops the last and honestly, I wouldn't be surprised to learn that a lot of what we see on the show really does happen in real life politics. Maybe that's part of why I like it so much!
Aside from the drama, one of my favorite characters is the the Mayor's wife, Meredith Kane-played by Connie Nielsen. Her wardrobe consists of fitted sheath dresses and skirt suits that are so minimalistic yet so powerful. And she is simply stunning. I was shocked to learn she is 47 freaking years old. Talk about INSPIRING! I guess she is showing the movie business who is the REAL boss!
I just finished watching Season 1 and am ready to start catching up on Season 2. Quite frankly, I'm shocked it was shut out at the recent Emmy nominations. It's total motivation to get me up and running on the treadmill for an hour! If you're looking for a smart, well written, well acted, and fast moving drama to watch this weekend, I highly recommend this one!
