I am conflicted about White House Plumbers. Yes, I enjoyed it immensely. Should I have? It was a little problematic.
It is terrifying to think that the government could be taken down by male frailty, but that's the premise of the show. Liddy and Hunt are overgrown adolescents driven by vanity, so starved for praise at work they concoct the scheme to bug the DNC. They try again and again out of self-delusion and arrogance until they get caught.
At some point I wondered, "What would I think if the genders were reversed and these characters were women reduced to caricatures, satirized?" Nope. Would not like, would not recommend.
Perhaps this past summer's libido nonsense has made me more sympathetic to men. Dunno. And maybe there's a little discomfort with mining the long national nightmare for comedy, like with The Producers. But how can fifty years can be "Too Soon"?
Oh, if you do watch it (HBO), be sure to read the end cards that flip by on the last two episodes.
