Interesting that it's been picked up so quick.I'd put that down to Kiefer Sutherland's perfectly nuanced performance. You can just see the Presidential demeanour emerging from him. I really enjoyed the premiere and the second episode, the actors are all perfectly cast.

They writers do cliffhangers very, very well but some of the sub-plots are a bit 'done to death' - but that doesn't stop me enjoying the show. It just makes me wish they'd put a bit more effort into the writing. However it's very early days for this show and I am, for now, along for the ride. So, it's great to know we don't have to worry they're going to cancel it ten episodes into the first season and drive us all nuts with no closure.

I really do wish it had been on Netflix as a binge watch of this show would be fantastic!

I never cared for 24, but I decided to give this a chance, and I'm happy I did. This is well acted and scripted, so I'm not really surprised that it was picked up so quickly. Thoroughly enjoying this and hope it has a long run!

I love Kiefer Sutherland's acting. Something about his voice is annoying and has been since 24 but still he is articulate and firm in his voice which is a perfect match for his role in this new series.
I love shows close to reality (God, I bite my tongue for this disasterouse happening), yet I love how such shows shed a very dimmed light on the events that goes behind the scenes and the real politics that has to be considered for every little spoken word and action the people in power have to deal with. IT is not easy after all. Love the show so far. I wish it to fill the void of West Wing for me.

Available Weekly on Netflix AU (not sure about other countries)

So far glad I've given it a chance. well acted, good plot and some natural realism.
Happy we are getting a full season, but how happy will depend on it closing the season well without needing a sequel or if it ends with a cliffhanger and potentially leaving us without an S2 and an ending.

*Kiefer is still Kiefer but he doesn't bother me.
*24 was done to death, so hopefully they keep this fresh.
*so far 2 episodes in - looking good.

I like that the character is played as somewhat timid, and I hope as the character evolves he doesn't lose humility. If he does and becomes President Bauer I'm out.

Well pyxel, you've probably doomed this show by wishing it a long run :) A great show though and I also hope the network doesn't pull the plug to early on this one.

Reach4raj......I guess you like the show. One comment would have been sufficient though.
