News & Interviews for Designated Survivor: Season 2
It's the most topical show going. It's real. Though it may be too real at this point.
This has been a rough season with only a handful of good episodes.
It was such a weak storyline. Not only was it weak, but it was redundant as well.
While the conspiracy behind the Capitol bombing had its foibles, it did set this show apart from the pack and surrounded Kiefer Sutherland with a thriller element which his 24 fans found nicely familiar.
Do you feel like a sucker? I kind of do. And I didn't even need President Kirkman to say it for me to realize it.
