Designated Survivor Season 2 Episode 13 Review: Original Sin

Welcome to the White House, Trey Kirkman! On Designated Survivor Season 2 Episode 13 , we caught our first glimpse of Breckin Meyer in action playing Tom's younger brother, and it was the absolute best. Before this, there is very little that we knew about Kirkman's family or childhood. Most people were unaware of the fact that he had a brother at all. The introduction of Trey couldn't have come at a better time.   ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2018/03/designated-survivor-season-2-episode-13-review-original-sin/

Designated Survivor Season 2 Episode 12 Review: The Final Frontier

Bloody hell that was dull. I cannot believe that we had to sit through all of Designated Survivor Season 2 Episode 12 onlyfor the "Kirkman being menacing to the drunk driver who killed Alex" fiasco to be teased at the end of the hour. The best thing that came out of this installment was Kim Raver's appearance. Otherwise, it was colossally dull. By the end of the hour, I had to remove my dog from my keyboard. The poor guy was so bored he fell asleep five minutes in. I envied him.   ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2018/03/designated-survivor-season-2-episode-12-review-the-final-frontie/

Designated Survivor Season 2 Episode 11 Review: Grief

Grief is a difficult thing,but there is no rule book on how to juggle grieving while running a nation. On Designated Survivor Season 2 Episode 11 , Tom was attempting (and mostly failing) at it. It left some of his close friends in dangerous, life-threatening positions and most of his staff and colleagues frustrated. I have to give it to the show, this storyline may have been a bit of a curveball for the writers, but they'rewholly invested in it. It may be the most promising arc in the sophomore season.   ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2018/03/designated-survivor-season-2-episode-11-review-grief/

Designated Survivor Season 2 Episode 9 Review: Three Letter Day

Now that's how you end an hour. I was all prepared to chalk up Designated Survivor Season 2 Episode 9 as a solid hour that was entertaining at times but mostly run of the mill in regards to the larger arcs, but the ending turned everything up a notch. Chuck's open hatred for Damien fueled me, but now, this latest twist is sweet, sweet validation for good ole Chuck and me. There's a reason we disliked Damian or at least a reason why we've been wary of him.   ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2017/12/designated-survivor-season-2-episode-9-review-three-letter-day/

Designated Survivor Review: A Taste of Home

At any given moment, there is a lot going on in the White House. Designated Survivor juggles dozens of balls in the air in an hour, and that only gets more difficult when the President is out of town. While President Kirkman is on a secret mission, chaos ensues. Someone is trying to set up the First Lady, both Seth and Lyor get into legal trouble, and Emily and Kendra become a dynamic duo trying to keep the roof of the White House from popping off. Kirkman is in the direct line of fire this week, but Emily does her fair share of putting out the fires as well. Seth gets into a little bit of trouble, both because of bad judgment, and because of an illegal search and seizure. This isn’t the first time Seth has been subject to police profiling despite his high-ranking position. Unfortunately, this is the first time Seth is in the wrong. Though the cops did illegally search his vehicle, 200 pills in the car is nothing to laugh about. The White House cannot afford to be put Seth in the public eye until this matter is cleaned up. This leaves Lyor as the Interim Press Secretary. Let’s just say, the sooner Seth’s mess is cleaned up, the better. Seth can’t refute the claims because it would mean admitting the drugs were actually his little brother’s, who was using them to get through his grueling studies for the MCATs. Kendra gets very, very lucky. The arresting officer was trying to make his arrest quota for an application submission for detective. Kendra is able to get the charges dismissed, but the situation still puts Seth in a tough position with Emily, the White House, and that nosy reporter who just won’t quit. READ MORE...
