    As I said when you first posted the first several of this series (which I see you have reposted), even as someone who doesn't know from The Simpsons, this is great work.

    What? Associate Justice Cruz or Senator McKinley? I have a feeling I know the answer, though.

    I suppose old German Crime Dramas directed by Fritz Lang aren't particularly popular with the wiki box thread's demographics. :p

    I never knew it that Brüning had it in him.

    Must have been Wilhelm Marx; or perhaps Papen?

    Brüning would've been approximately one hundred and two times more likely to do that sort of thing than Marx.

    With Illinois' Senate seats occupied by popular incumbents, Peter Fitzgerald and Dick Durban, Barack Obama set his sights on the Governor's Mansion. Pat Quinn, former lieutenant to the disgraced Rod Blagojevich, proved ineffectual in the primaries and lost a four-way race to Mr. Obama. As Governor, Obama was lauded for expanding the state's medicare program, among other accomplishments, and won a landslide re-election in 2014.

    The High Castle was a satirical British mockumentary broadcast by the BBC on BB2 from 6 May 2010 to 23 June 2016. The third and most recent entry of the In Power series, it followed the Cabinet of Prime Minister David Cameron (played by Donald Cameron) and the day-to-day activities of a Coalition Government. Overall 48 episodes were released over six seasons.

    Following David Cameron from his near victory in the 2010 General Election and the formation of his Coalition Government with Nick Clegg (played by Nick Clegg), through to his resignation in the aftermath of a Referendum on Britain's status in the European Union, the show was noticeably bleaker than its predecessors, with critics noting that the previous focus on the frustrations of running Government eschewed in favour for, as Seamus Milne of the Guardian would write, "the anxiety of the public mask and what it means to be a politician in modern society, and the consequences of when that mask slips". Other critics would also point out that the show concerned itself strongly with the interactions between the Coalition partners and the "savage" breakdowns of those interactions, as well as the traditional themes of desperation and political impotency.

    Much like its predecessors, the show was frequently written shortly before filming and transmission in an attempt to keep it relevant to ongoing political events. Notable examples of this would include the Falklands diplomatic stand-off, the Arabian Civil War (rendered in-show as the Libyan and Syrian Civil Wars), the offshore banking scandal, and the London Riots. Additionally, as had become tradition many of the actors used their real names, though some, such as Donald Cameron, Gideon Osborne, and Theresa Braisier, would opt to use variations of their names in order to personally distance themselves from the characters.

    The show has received a great deal of attention, both critically and politically, famously coming under fire from Prime Minister Durrell. Though receiving warm reviews from the press, the fifth season of the show would prove to be controversial, with the Coalition ending and much of the cast leaving, many finding the subsequent plots to have become increasingly outlandish and silly, such as the infamous 'Piggate' story, as well as bordering at times of wish-fufilment, espeically after the introdution of Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn. The development of Michael Gove would receive particular attention among the fan community, who noted a dramatic decline in his intelligence and abilities as the series progressed, as well as the absurdly antagonistic behaviour of Iain Smith. Despite this, the sixth and final season, which delt with the collapse of the Cabinet, a Refrendum on the European Union, and the resignation of Cameron was critically acclaimed, with 33 million watching the series two-part climax, Turning and Turning.

    The High Castle has receive several BAFTA nominations, with Cameron receiving attention for his potrayal of the Prime Minister, critics praising his performance of a "charecter perpetually on the verge of loosing his cool", and Nick Clegg for his role as the belittled Deputy Pime Minsiter. The show was relativly successfull, with an American adaptation, obstantly a sequal to Farmer Jimmy, announced in 2017.

    I was reading about that when doing research. Montana is really close to getting another seat. It all depends on Florida in the next Census.
