The Politician prompts us to interrogate our own reaction to Payton’s charisma, and consider the possibility that we’re being duped—a dynamic made possible by Platt’s performance.

Politics in the era of spin would seem like fertile ground for social commentary by a TV creator who has never shied away from such a thing … until now. “The Politician” feels surprisingly toothless at times.
