I didn't watch the movie and I totally understand why people would drop this show but also at the same time, I kinda feel bad for the people that did or were underwhelmed by the show because honestly, it wasn't bad. Like it was slow and you're like ugh I've seen this a thousand times but really, it was different as well and it was just plain good to me. In a way, it was predictable of course because it's about politicians and CEO's and all that jazz lol but the plot twist lies into the personal relationships and families and that's what really took it home for me. The ML isn't a bad guy and he never was really. He was childish and kinda funny in every aspect lol. Something about family dramas really get to me and I just enjoy them in general when it's the right kind of family if that makes sense, when you're actually family. I liked the FL, her plot twist was out of this world and after that, I could not stop crying! LOL. I liked the kids, they were sweet, annoying and just had their own lives going on. The bad characters weren't terrible. In a way, maybe it needed even more episodes to kind of develop more and span a little more. They took the romance aspect out of it so you can disregard that but the chemistry was still there, with all the characters and aspects. I liked the daughter, she just was not a bad kid. I liked the ups and downs and in the end, you don't end up disappointed at the fact that he stepped up to be a father when no one else did and that was crazy good. So if you're hesitating to watch this, I say, don't. It's good, packed with politics and drama of course, but family feels and love and it was honestly kinda satisfying in that stand point.

I won't really invest much into this review as I'm only going to share some of my vague thoughts

I actually only watched this drama because of Lee Sun Bin. I am a big fan of Running Man, and Lee Kwang Soo, a member of Running Man, is Lee Sun Bin's boyfriend. Prior to The Great Show, I watched 38 Task Force (Lee Sun Bin was also in this drama); 38 Task Force was a great drama (though it has nothing to do with the great show I just wanted to share), a drama about a group of people making the world a better place with the use of their conning skills. Another Drama, My Fellow Citizens, is a bit similar to both dramas mentioned above; there's conning involved also the main protagonist is trying to get into the national assembly.

To cut down to the chase, I was disappointed with The Great Show. The main selling point of this drama is the character development, and they did a fairly good job portraying that. But what was lacking for me was the overall impact of the story. Watching this drama didn't keep me glued to my seat, but rather I wanted the drama to finish quickly just so I can witness how everything ends. And to my disappointment, even the ending was not satisfying, to say the least; I dare say that the entire plot was worthless because of the ending. The writer tried to make a happy ending where every character had a happy ending with the expense of the main protagonist's childhood dream. All in all, this isn't a drama you should watch if you want a story you could connect with, it's more of a drama you could choose if there's barely any left for you to watch.

I have no idea why this is higher than My Fellow Citizens, or why My Fellow Citizens has such a low rating to be more specific. My Fellow Citizens was a lot funnier than the Great Show, and the plot was a lot more intriguing.
