Lian Dolan and Julie Dolan of the Satellite Sisters recap the CBS drama Madam Secretary. This week, it's Season 3, Episode 8 called Breakout Capacity.

Nooo!!!!   Three storylines:    Diplomatic Crises on Election Day: the nuclear deal that the admin negotiated with Russia and Iran is in jeopardy   The staff on Election Day—apparently, it’s the one day in DC when everyone goes crazy, drinkins a lot, sings showtunes and sleeps with fremenies.

So Caroline will be back!  Aunt Agatha has an outstanding show!  The mail! Again, Cornwall seems to have the fastest mail in world Demelza’s right hook. Not a fan of violence but sock it to me, baby.    Bad Stuff   Almost 80% of the show was bad to worse to terrible   The mine collapse killing several men, including new dad Tinners show up. OMG! Elizabeth’s mother literally blows a gasket! Child birth at home- I needed a slug of that Brandywine to watch the scene Elizabeth—just Elizabeth. The whole show we were screaming at the TV every time she was in a scene. All the handwringing over “doing the right thing” Oh please, girl.  And Ross. Just Ross.    See for privacy information.

Poldark Recap Season 2 Episode 6
More of a Random thoughts this week:   Most of this episode was shot in the dark—or maybe I was sitting in the dark waiting for the election to be over, but here’s what I remember:   My heart is broken for Dwight the Good Doctor and Caroline, Cheeky Heiress. Doomed from the start—but I fell for it.    I think Ross and the boys there on Poldark are using some new hair products, because some great man hair this week. A lot of messy holds.   Aunt Agatha cracking wise about Ross. Bright spot.    Nobody does windswept like Demelza   Could Elizabeth be any more pathetic? Why on earth would the French Revoltution be an issue for Trenwith? Pull yourself together there, Buttercup.  And seriously. Maybe Ross isn’t calling on you because he has a wife, child and failing mine!!   It’s been almost two seasons, will  they ever find and copper? And why does Ross seem to have one stupid idea after another—as in,  I’m going to catcha  ride with these smugglers and then drink myself silly why you hold down the fort, the town, the family, okay, honey?    And who the heck was that hairy , hairy man? Oh, wife killer and mining savant Mark Daniel. I stopped caring about half way through that scene.    Big winner of the episode: Dwight Enys. I mean, what a man, what a man, what a mighty good man. Sticking with his people, hunting down the snitch and then beating him down in a great man-fight, then building that bonfire on the bluff to save Ross.    Big Loser: Redcoats   See for privacy information.

Madam Secretary 304: The Dissent Memo TV Re-Cap
Madam Secretary is Back in Action! And she’s doing it from the State Department right there in DC. The only foreign country she went to was Cleveland- in this episode. Lian Dolan and Julie Dolan of the Satellite Sisters re-cap the CBS drama Madam Secretary Season 3, Episode 4 called The Dissent Memo   Props to Julie for calling out The Power Jumper ! The fashion look returns and MSEC rocks one for most of the show.    And we all give thanks that President Dalton stayed out on the campaign trail so that Bess could do her job – without any blah, blah blah in the blue blazers    Three story lines:   Africa, Antiquities, and Awful British People   The Bombing in Angola and a vaguely democratic dictator suppressing the vote and imprisoning his opponent to ensure victory. A chance to focus on Africa and the double standard fo press coverage. Turning point when Bess gets a Memo of Dissent--  which as far as I can tell is basically a mean anonymous note in your locker… But Bess has a Classic LIGHT BULB MOMENT!!    Black Dog Station- Henry and Jose are back on the trail of linking stolen black market antiquities and terrorists—specifically the group HS. Love this storyline. When henry said the word “reliquary’ I swooned. I also loved the fact that they got on this inside of this vast black-market world in like one commercial break. Now working with a French agent who is impersonating a Bad Archaeologist.    On the Home Front, the stalking storyline takes a back seat to young love—Jareth is Lord Jareth and he’s coming to stay in a Twin Bed with Stevie. Lian doesn't support this romance. Julie is suspicious about Stevie Energy Level. See for privacy information. See Privacy Policy at and California Privacy Notice at

Poldark Re-Cap Season 2, Episode 5
Lian Dolan and Julie Dolan of the Satellite Sisters Talk TV. Our commentary on the PBS drama Poldark. This week, Season 2, Episode 5. This week at SSHQ, Julie and Lian wear our Team Demelza t-shirts while recording this podcast.    But first…   Who is putting silk stocking on their Christmas list? Does that count for one or two nights of Hannukah?    In this episode: Demelza fights for her family, her man, mucks out a barn, stands on the right side of smuggling, marches into a creditors office like a boss and makes Christmas dinner. As Mrs Drunk says, Do you need a lits of all the things she does to keep us safe and warm and fedded?   Meanwhile, Elizabeth bears herself nobly and rides that damn horse around town.  We think the choice is obvious to us—but apparently not to Ross.   This episode set up the post Francis life for Elizabeth—and it’s apparently one of heavy sighs and sexy mourning dresses with a little bit of sad blanket weaving mixed in.  The bright spot? Caroline and Dr. Ennis! Yes!    See for privacy information. See Privacy Policy at and California Privacy Notice at

And putting on pillow shams.. at one point, Henry starts mansplaining mental illness and stalking. To Bess. Who was in the CIA.

And for goodness sakes, Frances, why didn’t you learn to swim!!!   But first, I have a few questions:   Since when is Francis a magistrate? Is Captain Gilbert & Sullivan away on a ship?  Didn’t those red coats learn anything in the revolutionary war? Like buy some green coats? After that eye gauging beatdown convince George the Weasal to give up fighting for fencing?  Did it seem strange that Ross & Francis were holding hands during a dance?     Story lines:    Mining, fighting, smuggling and snitching.
