I Am The Ambassabor

Lovely, upbeat look at the life of Rufus Gifford, the U.S. Ambassador to Denmark from 2014 – 2016 during Obama’s last term. Gifford became a celebrity in Denmark and so the idea came to create a reality series around his life as Ambassador. During his tenure, marriage equality happened and so he wed his partner, veterinarian Stephen DeVincent in 2015. I Am The Ambassador covers the life and duties of Gifford as he warms his way into the heart of the Danish people. At a simple nine, 30-minute episodes for the combined two seasons, this series is easy to digest. You might learn a few things about being an ambassador. But mostly you will pine away for a simpler time when our U.S. President inspired people to go out in the world and partner with other nations as equals and to learn from their hosts as much as they gave. 3.5 out of 5.
