Is he lying? Was she setting him up?
By the end of the first half-hour episode, I'll admit I was kind of curious to see more, but it's kind of a slog getting to that point. "Full Circle" by its nature is a dialogue-heavy show, like something out of the days of early TV when plays were essentially staged in front of TV cameras.
The candidate comes off as an infantile man-child in thrall to his more intelligent wife (Kim Raver). One minute they're fighting; the next, they're doing everything they can to shore up his campaign. It's a bit of character motivation whiplash. And yet, I still wanted to see where the story would go.
