Two episodes in, and I'm really enjoying Designated Survivor. I keep expecting it to evolve into soap operaish melodrama, but so far it's kept me on the edge of my seat. Just when you think things are going to turn better, boom! Plot twist! I don't want to really get into detail so I don't spoil the show for any one thinking of watching, but if you are thinking about it, jump in. The writing and acting so far has been really good. I recommend it.
