Bill Sterling, Jr. - a non-politico teacher at a Los Angeles correctional facility - is selected by the governor of California as a replacement for a deceased U.S. Senator, primarily thanks to the popularity of his father, a former governor. Upon arrival in Washington, Senator Sterling declares that he is not a member of either major political party. He approaches his job with a refreshing honesty and vibrance that breeds loyalty and fascination in his staff and bitterness among his colleagues.Written by
This show was supposedly set in the same 'universe' as the The West Wing (1999), but there was at least one verbal reference to 9/11 in "Mister Sterling", and 9/11 was not incorporated into the "West Wing" 'universe' (unless you count the stand-alone episode "Isaac and Ishmael"). See more »
Do you know what you're doing here? Do you? Or is this just some crazy roller coaster ride to nowhere that's gonna make us all look like idiots?

Though I am a staunch democrat, I had so much respect for SenatorSterlings regarding whether people called him democrat or republican --to him, he was an independent and soon learned the up's & down's of that. When he dealt -- he dealt for the right ultimate things. All politicians deal (mostly for themselves and/or legacies) but normally not for the best interests of America. Mr. Sterling was my hopeful dream of how politicians should think and act -- in the interest of their constituents and country. I had hoped that ordinary people would watch and say, "That's the kind of man we can trust". Unfortunately,ordinary people are interested in other things.
PLEASE, PLEASE, IF ANYBODY IS OUT THERE -- WE NEED TO HAVE THIS ON DVD! HELP, NBC -- APPARENTLY YOU'RE THE ONLY APPEAL!
