Designated Survivor: EW review
By the time you read this, the United States will have chosen a new president after a dispiriting election that tested truth, common decency, and the accepted norms of email and locker-room talk. I feel good about my vote, but I wish I had the option of Tom Kirkman, the bright, accidental POTUS of ABC’s poli-sci thriller Designated Survivor. Our new leader undoubtedly will have some things in common with Kirkman, whose haters doubt his fitness to serve, question his legitimacy, and speak openly of subverting his new administration. Still, could he be the right man for the moment?
