3. The Politician (2019-)
‘The Politician‘ is an American comedy series that airs on Netflix. It has been created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan. The series focuses on Payton Hobart, a wealthy student from Santa Barabara, who has ambitions of becoming the President of the United States one day. The idea is that each season of the show is going to revolve around different political races that Payton is a part of.
The first season sees him fight a school election which quickly turns dirty. Payton is a cold and calculating politician who accounts for all possibilities. However, his claim to be the student president hits a bump when an attractive and popular student contests the elections. Things soon go sideways when Payton’s competitor cannot take this stress and commits suicide. He is replaced by his more ambitious girlfriend and soon a dirty political battle is fought out in the school itself. Several others get involved including Payton and his opponent’s advisory teams, as well as their running mates.
The series is well crafted, poking fun at the political system and various political stereotypes that exist in American culture. Despite being a show about mostly rich, white kids, ‘The Politician’ manages to reach out to a wide audience. Spectacular performances have set the show apart with Murphy’s characteristic moments, some of which include singing. We see how various families get involved and affected due to the political battle raging in the school and how the candidates face their personal lives as they come to terms with who will be the best leader. The first season ends on a note of hope for Payton who will be taking up a bigger challenge in the upcoming season as he goes up against an undefeated candidate.
Zoey Deutch plays the part of Infinity Jackson in the series. Infinity is Payton’s running mate and is chosen by him because she seems to be suffering from cancer. Thus Infinity is sure to get the sympathy votes for Payton. However, things soon go south when they discover that Infinity’s cancer is made up and she is a victim of Munchausen by Proxy disorder. Her scheming grandmother plans to use her cancer excuse to get free stuff. Over the season, Zoey delivers a memorable performance, first as a suffering but sharp girl who knows what she wants out of life. As she comes to terms with the truth, she becomes bolder but the pain of her grandmother’s betrayal is evident. Eventually, towards the end, we see her make the best of a bad situation and live life on her own terms.
In the upcoming season of ‘The Politician,’ Zoey Deutch is sure to reprise her role as Infinity who will help Payton try to win the election. We can expect more of the same assertive performance from her that made Infinity so memorable in the first season of the show.
