Viola needs to realize that even great actors can sometimes suck and be wrong for the role.   

Get over yourself, Viola.

Maybe Ms. Davis should have asked to meet Mrs. Obama and hang out with her for a bit. The pursing her lips thing is just SO distracting and I'm pretty sure Michelle didn't do that all the time. It bugs me so much that I fast forward through her scenes. I do think Michelle  (Betty Ford) is killing it-I really enjoy her scenes. Gillian Anderson is doing a good job with Mrs. Roosevelt even with the prothesis in her mouth.

Sorry Viola. You're a great actress but it's not working. It's really odd though. She didn't observe Michelle in any of her interviews or ask to meet her to figure out how to play her? She has the most material to work with and she doesn't seem to have done anything with it. Why does she keep doing the mouth thing? What is that about?

Viola Davis was a producer too wasn't she? Wouldn’t she have seen how she was portraying Michelle and at the very least stop with the ridiculous mouth movements.

If she did it certainly doesn't show.

Someone should’ve brought up how ridiculous it was though. It was so obvious lol.

For me, Viola Davis can do no wrong. Michelle Pfieffer is terrific. The story I am really enjoying is Eleanor Roosevelt. Gillian Anderson is slaying it. Probably because she is the First Lady I was not around for. It's all new. 

I wonder, for a second season if there is going to be one, they could pick 3 more FLOTUSes and do them. Mrs Woodrow Wilson, Edith, should be one of the next. There is only one I don't want to see. 😁

Spolier?

Spoiler

Looked up the cast and there will be Kate Burtun as Hillary Clinton later on this season. Does this mean that thre Obama Arc will end with the 2016 Election? That is NOT something I want to relive, and I'm Canadian!

Clinton was Secretary of State, so the actress may have been cast for that reason.

I usually watch via Showtime On Demand and the tenth episode ("Victory Dance") is already available.
