Moen, M. It also, more anomalously, plays on the multiple, inset screens, as the cabinet and Palmer are connected at a remove — in a visual pun on removal — through videoconferencing. This feeling of turmoil is reinforced, too, by nauseating handheld camera movements and accelerated zooming in and out that create blurred images, as well as by the sheer number of inset screens that convey an image of fragmentation, rather than unity. Split screens and split votes echo split loyalties — the Secretary who casts the decisive vote professes utter respect for the President even as he deposes him.
When Mike Novick closes his computer in a game over! A bust of Lincoln left , and a portrait of Washington center are cast as so many historic echoes and remediations of what it means to be one of the great presidents, placing the fictional Bartlet within this pantheon of historical figures — and through this mise en abyme of sculpture and painting, the series simultaneously makes its own claim to being a contemporary political art form, and not merely entertainment.
Have the Democrats in the executive just committed collective political suicide? The deal he is about to put on the table the framing of the table-top during the first part of the scene emphasizes this metaphorically is introduced by praising her presidential qualities: her leadership as University Chancellor, her expertise on the Middle East, and her performance on the Shanghai ranking index, as a recruiter of future Nobel Prize Winners 29 ….
His sarcasm about the value of experience, when Mac objects she only had one term in Congress, and his listing Watergate, Irangate and WMD-gate — a direct allusion to George W. Although Mac sees his real motive and points it out — he needs her to close the gender gap in votes — she does not realize that the door to actual power is being slammed shut in her face — the sound we hear as the flashback ends as Mac is literally called back to reality by the door of her car slamming shut. In the latter, President Mackenzie Allen, in a gender-bending version of Harrison Ford in the action movie Air Force One , fights not terrorists, but a burst appendix, on the presidential plane.
Knowing she will have to undergo sedation, she invokes the 25 th , thinking the Senate Leader will become acting president, but she underestimates her arch-nemesis, Republican Speaker Templeton, and his ambition. We see the conflict between idealism and cynicism being played out here too, along gender lines. Even as idealized presidents are portrayed as vulnerable, and even as they are momentarily removed from the presidential stage, their authority is never undermined. In a more theatrical metaphor, it reminds us that the president must stand before Congress and the nation via television , once a year, and how this aspect of his or her role must be learned, acted, rehearsed.
Roosevelt, the president who had had polio. But gender is portrayed as central 35 to CC : its last episode, in June , when it was already known there would not be a Season 2 36 , stages Mac reviving the Equal Rights Amendment, which in real life, was dropped in after falling short of the 38 states needed to ratify it. Is our contemporary History something of a perpetually rewound Groundhog Day? This was more than the eternal return of scripted events within the institution — from campaign stumping to inauguration ceremony, through Thanksgiving episodes, or the State of the Union speech.
Was it all in my head? No… it was actually worse! This aspect added a new level of warping to the time-space conundrum that lies at the heart of the series are the voyagers of the Battlestar future generations, or our ancestors? Where was, if not the outer, the inner darkness? Like Neo after he has taken the red pill in The Matrix, the Oval Office in this idealized form seemed staged, stagy, constructed — reality seemed that of our worst nightmares. What is a mutant human being? In this episode, in a conversation with the geneticist who has been tracking people with special abilities — the terrorist who blew up the city was one of them — the president calls for the extermination of all those who have supernatural powers.
When the White House announced in the first week of May that Osama Bin Laden had been killed and his body disposed of at sea, the sole photos the world saw of the event were these two:. Although one would hate to be associated with the paranoid right-wing Birthers of , one can only wonder: how could this mise en abyme of TV viewing without the images not prompt questions?
How could one not think, too, that Jack Bauer had just been sent on that mission to Pakistan? Where does the spillover of fiction into reality stop? On the one hand, series present us with representations of presidents with the avowed intent of prompting us to think about politics, policy, war on terror, war, and the value or the dangers of compromise or of realpolitik. Even as they praise idealistic leaders, or denounce the abuse of power, however, these series, because they bring the president into our living rooms weekly, over years on end, reinforce the institution and its legitimacy.
More often than journalism, political fiction points to our role as citizens: as Martin Sheen wrote in a March open letter to the L. The groundhog day aspect of seeing TWW again from the vantage point of is also reinforced by the now dated aesthetics of the first three seasons, with their episodic structure and light music even at the close of a dramatic episode. Even if TWW remains unique in its depiction of intelligent, articulate, political debate in the service of idealistic values, its optimism, and its refusal to put the War on Terror at the center of its narrative make it slightly surreal.
But BSG is also the series that most questions political and philosophical choices, and in the end, its message is that it depends less on the president, be she Laura Roslin, than on each and every one of us. President Ed. Montparnasse, provides an excellent overview of American presidents on screen.
