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!
Once in awhile, in just a few episodes, there are a few scenes that are really out there, so proceed with caution!
General mayhem, one person briefly shown with injuries, not particularly graphic
"Initiate Evac Protocol Zion." - secret service
"Well, so much for kindness, even in their grief" - Madam Secretary (end of conversation with NASA guy)
A special ops force tries to arrest someone and it goes poorly, many die. It is displayed on a screen within the situation room, making it harder to see.
Music swells, then silence
"Okay, I think you're all probably familiar with the old axiom 'Plans go out the window when the first shot of a war is fired" - Henry lecturing
