Pointless Nonsense

Posted in tv by Bill on September 23, 2016

designated-survivorDesignated Survivor stars Kiefer Sutherland as the Secretary of HUD who gets elevated to President after an explosion at the State of the Union address knocks out everyone else in the line of succession. He’s joined by Kal Penn, Natasha McElhone, Maggie Q, and some other familiar faces. It’s pretty promising. I mean, who knows if it’ll be good in the long run, but it has room for West Wing style political stuff, investigation into the explosion, intrigue as people try to undermine the unelected President.

The one thing that amuses me is that Kiefer Sutherland’s character wears brow line glasses. I think they specifically do this because everyone’s worried he’s too much of a wuss to be President, and if he reminded people too much of Jack Bauer, people wouldn’t buy him as a wuss. So… nerd glasses!
