    Digging the concept. It's broadcast format, so there's artistic issues, but the theme is really cool so I'm willing to look past those.

    Haha, yeah. I like this show, but I can't stop thinking about him as Jack Bauer and hoping he just fucks shit up. I know it won't happen, but a guy can dream.

    As for the show, it's entertaining. I don't really know how long of a run it can have since once they're done with the "whodunnit" story, there's not much else to move the plot along. Then it just becomes a shittier House of Cards basically.

    He's had glimpses of Jack Bauer in the first 3 episodes, he's going to be hardcore and I fucking love it!

    He's becoming stronger in his position over the course of the series. Came in like a scared lamb and is something of a lion now. That little switcheroo he pulled on the Governor of Michigan was fucking bad ass.

    Haven't watched the last episode yet, normally watch it Sunday mornings at work so I'll catch it tomorrow. But overall I absolutely love this show, has such a 24 feel to it and I just can't get enough. I wish it was on Netflix so I could binge watch.

    'designated survivor' on Netflix

    Didn't find a thread about this one.

    Has none of you watched it or you just didnt like it? I started watching yesterday and Im hooked! Watched like 8 episodes yesterday, even forgot about the game lol.

    I love these kind of series about US politics, maybe because Im not american, I dont know. Anyone else watched it?
