After spending a good portion of last week and the full weekend in San Diego for Comic Con, I'm still playing DVR catch-up as I adjust to being back on Eastern Standard (and non-SDCC-rush-around) time. Sunday night marked the return of Breaking Bad for AMC, and over on USA, their new limited series Political Animals made its grand debut. If you missed the premiere episode of the political drama, you can watch it in its entirety here.
Political Animals stars Sigourney Weaver as Secretary of State Elaine Barrish, the former First Lady who may have her eye on getting back into the White House.
To protect a dark family secret, secretary of state Elaine Barrish agrees to have hungry D.C. journalist Susan Berg follow her for the week of her son Douglas's engagement party. Meanwhile, a hostage crisis in Iran drives Elaine to make a momentous decision for the future of her family and her career.
For those of you who didn't catch the first episode last Sunday night, it is re-airing (My DVR has it set to record an encore airing of the premiere tonight and I expect there are other airings set to take place) over the course of the week. USA was also kind enough to post the full one-hour and thirteen minute premiere episode on YouTube. Check it out below.
Political Animals consists of six episodes and airs Sundays at 10:00 p.m. ET on USA.
