| Everything Ryan Murphy touches turns to Glee
I don't mean that in a good way. The Politician starts out smart, dark and addictive, then rapidly descended into a s**t tornado, minus the gold.

His tendency to rely on histrionics and maudlin song performances and ghostly apparitions in attempts to manipulate his audience into feeling all the feels pushes you past saturation point (he did the same to Pose, which also started out amazing before morphing into Glee) and ironically, it loses all its potency.

There is some lazy writing by way of information dumps and less than subtle exposition (especially in the last episode), but the cast are generally great. And visually it's great. And it really does start out great. Shame about the last half of the season.
