Designated Survivor: Season 1

| SEASON VERDICT | 
Great writing. Terrific acting. Fast moving. Designated Survivor was that unexpected series I didn't think I'd like, but I did. It was a bit uneven throughout the season though with the abrupt direction the story went after Peter McLeish died. It was a shocking twist, but a polarizing decision nonetheless. That said, a strong debut season for the series.
