I wrote a rather prickly and negative review of Designated Survivor on TMDB (the site that we use here for movie previews), so perhaps you read it Rice .
I really liked the opening premise, but it ended up in the realms of just plain wacky and the All American gung-ho America-saves-the-world sentimentalism just did my head in.
I do remember that you weren’t a fan, Splinter . Kiefer Sutherland’s near-beatific portrayal of a non-political, conscience-driven US president was, I’ll grant you, hard to believe, especially with what we are seeing in Washington now. But pushing past that, there were some interesting subplots starting to develop just as the plug was pulled on future episodes. I’m disappointed.
