    Anyone here check this show out? I was interested simply because of Keifer Sutherland and the fact I moved to the DMV lol. The pilot was good establishing the characters and how they'll be used in the show. Got me hooked to tune in weekly.

    Side note: I feel like this is a prequel to 24 lol.

    Pilot was dope. Only checked it out for Keifer too but Kal and Maggie Q in it too.

    Really liked the premise.

    Only thing I hope they speed pass is the whole general wanting to overthrow him treason stuff. Not as interesting.

    A designated government official held aside from public gatherings of the gov. just in case they die so he can be President and then had to rebuild most of the legislative and executive branch during a time they were attacked and might be again is interesting enough. Mirrors some challenges the founding fathers faced.

    In for tonight :nthat: (along with South Park and Code Black)

    Well, after watching ep. 2, it seems that the General is going to be the antagonist for the show.

    I can't imagine how stressful it would be having to become the president after they have been assassinated. 

    Ep. 2 was really good. I was heated with what happened to Kal.

    And still waiting to see what Maggie Q's role will be in this...So far, it seems she's just mourning the death of her lover.

    I was supremely pissed with how they detained Kal and then this Michigan lane giving his cops free reign.

    I figure Maggie Q is the key to catching the terrorists since that's like the mystery part of the show and a 2nd attack is coming.

    I won't lie sometimes when they're pressing him in the war room or in the oval office I be wanting Keifer to let the Jack Bauer out and just dominate :lol

    Keifer is a good actor. Got me believing Kirkman is soft, stressed out, and a bit shook when it comes to decisions.

    Right! I really want to think Keifer can knock that general out with ease...

    I really am curious what role the Republican Designated Survivor will play this season.

    Idk I really thought they filmed this show in DC, but it seems like it isn't lol.

    Last night's episode was dope. President flipping doing a complete 180 when Michigan's Governor arrived. Nice.

    Still curious to see what Aaron's play is in all of this. He's definitely playing the game behind the scenes.

    Also, the deal his wife made with the Congresswoman is definitely going to bite back on Kirkman...It's going to cause some definite issues towards the end of the season.

    But i'm bummed I have to wait till the 26th for a new episode lol.

    That Jack Bauer came out. Firing generals, arresting governors.

    They really tried Kirkman this past ep. I did not expect the Michigan general to hit him with the treason and call him Mr. Kirkman talking about I ain't rocking with you :{

    Now I'm just waiting to see how this other general comes back and plots on dude.

    1st lady flexing her muscles.

    The congresswoman is mad shady. She keep losing trust with her political ways.

    On the whodunit front, lame she had to get a call in the middle of the night to keep pursuing this only survivor.

    Real good ep :smokin

    The show has improved with every episode...The only thing I don't like is the storyline of Kirkman and the possibility of his son, not really being his son.

    But I am curious what will happen with Malik Yoba's storyline lol

    Yeah, same here.

    I want to assume MacLeish is part of it and he probably ordered someone to kidnap his son.

    for sure! I think he's behind a lot of the things going on, including the bombing. Room 105! and who's the lady that called to start that discussion anyway?

    MacLeish just looks so damn shifty and unteustworthy :lol

    Yoba the FBI director should've shot that chick in the head. He also shouldbe got the president alone to tell him about Kattaran and his suspicions of MacLeish.
