Designated Survivor [on Netflix] is a Political Drama which explores the idea of a catastrophic event taking place at the State of Union address, which results in the President and nearly all the Cabinet being wiped out. The ‘designated survivor’ is someone who is kept at a different location for such an event, so that government can be continued.
I’d describe the show as a cross between 24 and House of Cards, and what makes it watchable is how it keeps you guessing. Filled with deceit, suspense and twists, I’m currently waiting for the next episode in March with anticipation!
Verdict: Good watch!
