Critics Consensus: Shallow and messy, but not in a fun way, The Politician's second term expands its political horizons but doesn't seem to know what to do with them.

2020, Netflix, 7 episodes

Critics Consensus: While The Politician can't uphold all of its tantalizing promises, it delivers just enough soapy satire in a sumptuous setting to keep Ryan Murphy fans invested -- though its unlikely to win him many new votes.

2019, Netflix, 8 episodes
