Advertisements Season Thread for Designated Survivor on ABC. Spoilers abound...enter at your own risk. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This show is ok, not great, but I feel it starting to slip a little each week. I like the mystery part, but the way they're writing the President makes it unbearable to watch. Yes, I get he didn't ask for the job, but his wishy-washy, whichever way the wind blows persona is killing me. It's like every week he faces a crisis of conscience, and every week he gets his spine back. Either do the job or quit. And the way he handles groups like the governors is amazing in its ineptness. Walks out while confessing to doubts, comes back to win them back, then gives in to a Trumpian demand. Geez, grow a pair. And his wife. He's trying to rebuild Congress, and she is bugging him about a plane of refugees. Maybe he has bigger things to worry about? And the kid who may not be his? Please, for goodness sake, drop it. WE DON'T CARE ABOUT STORY LINES INVOLVING TEENS. In any show. The only good thing is at least we haven't had to see them in several eps. So... bottom line. This was the worst episode yet, by far. The next one is the bubble. Strong comeback, SP lives. Otherwise, whack it! Oh, I almost forgot. Highest security prisoner in the history of the US. Was there anyone watching who really thought he would survive the episode? Cliche time! I had hopes for this one.
