This TV Show is somewhat tiring to watch.

Notes About the Violence

Madam Secretary is one of those shows, which is 95% OK, then it sneaks in a very violent scene. But it fits the mission of this website well, in that we don't feel that just because 5% is violent or graphic, we have to skip the whole show!

General Warning

Once in awhile, in just a few episodes, there are a few scenes that are really out there, so proceed with caution!
