For those unclear of K Street’s concept (as I was until I checked out HBO.com):
I missed episode 1, but caught most of last night’s episode.
I’m a political junkie, so I when I heard about this show, I thought it would be right up my alley. I thought it was going to be actual footage of lobbyists and political consultants in Washington doing their thing.
But then I’m watching it, and I’m thinking, "Hey! Wasn’t this guy on ‘Ed?’ "
And then one of the female characters awkwardly confronts an associate at a sidewalk cafe, and tells her to “Fuck off.”
So then I realized it was fiction. Sort of a “Curb Your Enthusiasm” for politicos.
Anyway, I’m not really sure yet if I’m going to like this show. It’s sort of a “mockumentary,” which I typically like as a genre, but to me this show was a little confusing. I wish they’d put the names of the characters and RL people on the bottom of the screen as they enter a scene so we know who they are (like in a real documentary). But maybe I’m just slow, or am not really used to the concept yet.
