1. A First-rate dorama [Rating: 9/10]
Among the finest doramas I've seen, Farewell, Mr Premier brings out the same delightful touch found in Ohsama no Resutoran. Tamura Masakazu as the premier was a great casting choice and Nishimura and Tsutsui made this feel like King's Restaurant in the Premier's office. The acting by the whole cast was excellent and the quirky plots kept me entertained throughout the whole series. I'm thoroughly satisfied that I watched this series particularly in light of all the current trendy types of doramas that seem to have lost the kind of originality and touch that a dorama like this one provides.

I can't believe that this is the same Honami from tokyo love story...God, so much changed since then. Anyway, her role is pretty silly as she's the PM's play-wife. I can't swallow michitaka's acting as its pretty stiff and emotionless, I never liked his acting anyway, even in Asunaro hakusho. but Aiko is a such a doll here, I felt sorry for her getting slapped , but it was just funny. Tsuruta Mayu is the ditzy sexy maid and they just made it right, because she's just hot in that maid outfit. generally its an ok show, but avoid for those who are not into politicals jokes and gimmiks.

Had trouble telling this apart from a continuation of Ohsama no Resutoran! :P Seriously though, I thoroughly enjoyed watching this dorama with the great scenes among the cast members and watching them handle crisis after crisis in quirky and at times humourous ways. Music was very appropriate and the acting was first-rate. Two thumbs up for sure!

nice drama, it changes with most of those that try to deal with politics without pointing at laws or constitution matters. This drama would have no success if it was broadcasted now as japanese people don't understand anything about politics.

Trop mou, ponctué avec de petits moments tres droles, seul le carisme du personnage "du prermier" est maintient l'interet
Too soft punctate by funny moments, only the charisma of the character "the prermier" keeps interest.

Maybe not the greatest series of all times but I love the chemistry between Tamura and all the other cast members. Very, very funny - although very simple - political satire.

I really liked this drama! Good storyline, great supporting cast and Suzuki in a total change of character is a hoot as the ditzy wife!
