DESIGNATED SURVIVOR (2016)

Designated Survivor

Creators: David Guggenheim

Cast: Kiefer Sutherland, Natascha McElhone, Adan Canto

During the annual State of the Union speech, one member of the administration is chosen to stay behind at a safe location in case an attack wipes out the rest of the government. This has never happened so the writers said to themselves what if?

Tom Kirkman (Kiefer Sutherland) is the outgoing Secretary of Housing and Urban Development but disaster strikes, Tom is quickly sworn in as leader of the states and yes there are people who thinks he can do the job others not so much. Seth Wright (Kal Penn), a speech writer that does not think the new guy has what it takes. Nor do any of the military leaders and is understandable here the military people wants to find out who did this to the country and strike but the new guy thinks we should make sure who did this then strike. So there is going to be conflict here. Yes it is an intelligent script here and works well. Tom here is not military he wants the people who did that behind bars but he has to make sure who did it. He is the brain of this investigation, the military the muscle. The thing is the show is moving a little quickly I am not sure if it is a good idea but it is still watchable. the cast however is just fine Natascha McElhone  as Tom’s wife, Alex, Italia Ricci  as Tom’s aide, Emily, Adan Canto  as the new president’s, well, tutor seems appropriate though isn’t entirely accurate, Aaron, LaMonica Garrett  as a Secret Service agent, Mike, and Maggie Q  as an FBI agent, Hannah. voila have fun.
