Mid-Season Report: Designated Survivor

Here's a show I stopped watching somewhere this season, then watched the final episode to see how it all played out.

The series started off so well, then became the Hannah show.  She isn't admirable to me, she does what she thinks should be done, with no thought for others or for whether she might be right or wrong.

Kiefer Sutherland shines, though he became less of a deeply good man this season.   We need more deeply good men.


I knew his wife's character was leaving, but found the plot line that took her out to be unbelievable for her character.  Kiefer's character is less without her partnership.  His family, which was part of the interesting adjustment to his presidency took a back seat completely.

Didn't appreciate the removal of Kimble Hookstraten who was a great foil for him. 

I might continue watching, but unlikely.
