Designated Survivor Season Two DVD Review


Good Morning Lovelies, 

As House of Cards prepares to come to an end and US politics heading for an election, the release of Designated Survivor season two couldn’t come at a more interesting time for viewers. Like a cake mixture of 24, The West Wing and a hint of Scandal, the show presents action after action with a slice of comedy and a large dash of drama. 

Following on from his first year in the oval, Tom Kirkman fights to keep the presidency safe from threats of terrorism, elections and even a refurbishment issue that is actually the least of his worries. With tense stand-offs, dilemma-solving issues and Kiefer Sutherland in the best role he has played in a long time, there is a lot to be had for the second season.

With clever scripts that reflect the issues that the world is facing with a hint of freshness, there is an intrigue to the story that other political shows have failed to touch upon. With some elements having the potential to repeat what the West Wing and others have done before; the appeal of Sutherland’s action hero lead makes Designated Survivor highlight that this is a show that is different.

It caters for all and as we get to know more about the people and the actions that make a president, it is a show that makes the real horrors of the world not seem so bad. Whether it be watching Sutherland’s Kirkman fighting off a battle with a Moscow ambassador or his own team members, there is something for all to get involved in.

And it isn’t just Sutherland who is providing this, as Maggie Q’s FBI agent figure provides the girl power that we are all looking for. Her action hero figure reminds us all of Nikita, a huge bonus for all of us who have been missing the character on screen.

Together and with the great mix of scripts and storylines that conjure up this second season, the show is going nowhere fast and with the loss of the previous two influences, it will only continue to grow.

There so, I am giving it…
