    She
    She didn't even appear in last night's episode. Instead an ex-pres is pushing his way into the craziness.

    I couldn't follow how this fellow Langdon got away from the church (Agent Hannah Bungle at work again) then a few minutes later he surrendered to the FBI?

    I found the recent episode (15) a real stinker though. I half-expected unicorns and fluffy bunnies to be gampoling around when the president gave a speech.

    I believe in real life, the Designated Survivor is generally kept out of the DC area, and in an undisclosed location (with full Secret Service protection) specifically for that reason.

    no ex-president this week at all....this show just jumps all over the place. last week in was in the whole show.

    so, what does aaron;s cousin have to do with the plot, they wouldn't have introduced her if she wasn't there for a reason.

    Probably just a plot device to make Aaron realize it would be a big mistake for him to walk away from Washington.

    The show is quickly turning into a pale version of West Wing. I think they need to concentrate a lot more on the conspiracy and the terrorists and a lot less on what the guy is doing as President.

    Not knowing the language I thought at first she was peaking Russian. Guess it was Spanish.

    As for jumping all over, yeas it does.

    But I'm really annoyed at Agent Hannah and her goofing up again - obviously Brooke was a minor figure in the conspiracy, but to let her get killed!

    Trouble on the set... they're bringing in a fourth showrunner to steer Designated Survivor towards a second season...

    "Logistically, Designated Survivor is a difficult show. Production takes place in Toronto; the writers room is in Los Angeles; and Guggenheim is based in New York. Sutherland, who executive produces the series, is highly involved in the show's creative and effectively does a pass on each script before it is finalized alongside Guggenheim."

    And I think that could well explain why 3 producers have been booted thus far. It also explains the drastic changes in tone episode-to-episode, like they can't figure out what the show is supposed to be.

    Was it an enjoyable episode? I've found the recent ones particularly bad and I'm really struggling to find the enthusiasm to keep watching.

    We're enjoying following it, in a 'what new can go wrong', in a Desperate Survivor kind of way. But I thought the plot about law professor who had resolved the 9 Judges issue, was going to get a sexual twist.

    Maybe showrunner #4 will be able to hold your interest better... :sigh:
