Designated Survivor Series Finale Recap: Will Kirkman's Term Continue?

This week on Designated Survivor, in its Season 2 and, at very least, ABC series finale, Tom Kirkmans administration stepped in it yet again, casting even more doubt on the future of his presidency.

Designated Survivor Season 2 Episode 22 Review: Run

Assuming that was the last we'll ever see of this series if the Netflix rumors don't come to fruition, the series went off on a decent note. Designated Survivor Season 2 Episode 22 was a solid hour that gave us some resolutions on the bigger arcs and teased new possibilities in the event the series would continue. Many of you are upset about the news, and I understand that, but overall the hour tied the series up nicely and worked as a series finale.   ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2018/05/designated-survivor-season-2-episode-22-review-run/

Designated Survivor Season 2 Episode 21 Review: Target

A lot happened during this hour. Was it entertaining? Sure, but the biggest issue is that they threw another three or four plots at us during the last episode before the finale. There was too much happening on Designated Survivor Season 2 Episode 21 , and there is no time to address any of it adequately. We also are unsure of whether or not the series will be picked up for another season which means if they're banking on loose threads, unresolved plot points, and a cliffhanger then fans are going to be livid. You can count me as one of those fans.   ...Read More.... https://www.tvfanatic.com/2018/05/designated-survivor-season-2-episode-21-review-target/

Designated Survivor Recap 4/25/18: Season 2 Episode 18 “Capacity”

Kirkman had to go to court to defend his fitness as President. He had recently lost his wife and had needed to go to a therapist to help him through his grief, however, there were some that believed his grief might have affected his mental capacity. They questioned whether or not Kirkman was fit to plunge the country into war because he hadn’t gone through the proper channels. Kirkman hadn’t contacted NATO or any of their allies about going to war and he had entered into a war based on flimsy evidence. He and his cabinet had been informed that their country didn’t have enough evidence to prove that Kumani had been behind a dirty bomb attack and still Kirkman chose to enter a war. Kirkman had told his people at the time that the country had been attacked and that the response in such a scenario meant they had to hit back ten times harder. Hence, why he decided went to war in the first place! The war in itself revealed that they had been right about the Kumani government and that the former dictator of the country had also been responsible for several other crimes against the United States government. Meaning Kirkman had been right to go to war and so he didn’t see why that was suddenly being thrown back into his face. He went to court and he had to sit back and listen while everyone in his life was questioned by Ethan West. West claimed he wanted to find the truth and yet he soon made court proceedings look like a witch hunt. READ MORE...

Designated Survivor Season 2 Episode 19 Review: Capacity

Be still my heart, Designated Survivor Season 2 Episode 19 was an hour that reminded me why we fell in love with this series in the first place. It was a shockingly solid hour considering the series has spent the majority of the season coasting along. While Kirkman being deemed fit by the hour's end was expected, the shocking five minutes at the end were not. ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2018/04/designated-survivor-season-2-episode-19-review-capacity/

Designated Survivor Season 2 Episode 18 Review: Kirkman Agonistes

Everything is coming back to haunt Kirkman and some of his staff members on Designated Survivor Season 2 Episode 18 . In a move for which the series deserves kudos, the 25th Amendment was used as a plot point. Michael J. Fox made his debut as Ethan West. I can already tell I'm going to love and loathe him all at once. It's tough when you want to be Kirkman's team, but you also understand those questioning him. Tom was back to being that sweet, genuine, kind-hearted man that we know and love best. He wasn't dabbling in that dictator behavior that has been on display for weeks. As a result, the mere thought of anyone coming for him and his presidencywas enough to put anyone on edge.   ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2018/04/designated-survivor-season-2-episode-18-review-kirkman-agonistes/

Designated Survivor Review: [SPOILER] Dies From Bombing, But Who’s The Bomber?

A hero and ally loses their life on this week’s Designated Survivor, and it awakens a long burning fire in the President. Since the beginning of his term, many have thought President Kirkman too soft to be in a high position of power. It’s the reason so many of his internal allies, most recently his ex-Secretary of State and former President Moss, turned against him. But the death of another ally awakens something uncontrollable in the President, and the fallout is one the country might not be prepared to handle. Dr. Frost makes a quick return to Washington, D.C. to help the President’s search for a dirty bomb. The only reason she is comfortable working with the FBI is because she would rather not die in a nuclear winter. Frost is a great asset to the White House, but you can tell she has been very careful not to mix her business with the government. She seems to not be a fan of the "if you give them a foot in the door" situation, preferring to keep firm lines between business and government, only crossing them in extreme circumstances. She is able to track the bomb back to D.C., but the question of where it, and its maker, are gets complicated. To that end, Kendra obtains special permission for Dr. Frost to look at classified data in order to find the bomber. READ MORE...

Designated Survivor Season 2 Episode 17 Review: Overkill

The moral and ethical complexities continue,and it made for a great hour. That's not to say that Designated Survivor Season 2 Episode 17 didn't leave me feeling perturbed, however. Let's unpack all of that and discuss the exciting leak that the White House will have to deal with next. It's fascinating how Kirkman has evolved on the series, and the same can be said for Emily as well. What's interesting is that no matter what was put out there, and who questioned him, Kirkman was consistent with his stance on declaring war.   ...Read More... https://www.tvfanatic.com/2018/04/designated-survivor-season-2-episode-17-review-overkill/
