Re: Designated Survivor

I have watched all 10 episodes and really enjoyed them. Although it was geared towards the US audience and Trump policies I love the message it sends and example it sets in not playing politics, respecting and listening to everyone and always trying to do the right thing. If it were any other series I would have been really peed off with shoving LGBT stuff constantly in your face. Hollywood is notoriously left wing and too many series are taking up the anti-Trump mantle (e.g. Supergirl) and it is doing my head in. Fortunately my realism factor prevailed and I accepted it in this series because it is a political drama and makes sense that those issues would be addressed.

Spoiler: 
The one thing which disappointed me is the death of Hannah Wells. The thing which I loved about Designated Survivor is the balance between being a political drama and the action/drama/thriller side like 24 with the conspiracies. When she got sacked by the FBI and joined the CIA I thought it was a great move and would allow her more freedom to work independently and outside of the law. Like Jack Bauer, she was never given the support or credit she deserved. I am gutted she has died and the black doctor she was working with obviously isn't qualified to replace her so I just hope the series doesn't end up being a pure political drama. I know it would probably be too far fetched to have a government-ending conspiracy every season but I am sure there are schemes and plots afoot all the time which need investigating.
