Amazing story line
17 October 2016 | by (Aurora, Colorado) – See all my reviews

If you can get past an enemy being able to blow up the Capitol during the State of the Union, leaving only a single representative and the Secretary of HUD as designated survivors, then this is a fantastic show. The challenges would be almost insurmountable, and Kiefer Sutherland is awesome. His character is growing every week. His wife is a strong woman, an attorney, and will obviously make a great First Lady. His oldest son has issues, so it will be interesting to see how that all falls out. There also seems to be some mystery surrounding one survivor of the bombing, as well as the actions of state governors in the wake of the disaster. To me, this is reminiscent of The West Wing, at least so far. I highly recommend this!
