"A low-level Cabinet member becomes President of the United States after a catastrophic attack kills everyone above him in the line of succession."
1. Good writing. There is lots of drama, conflict, and tension.
2. Good acting from all the actors.
Kiefer Sutherland- from 24.
Maggie Q- from Nikita.
Kal Penn- from Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle.
3. It's a very creative and original idea to have someone forced to become the President.
My opinion: It was a good pilot. I watched the 2nd episode to make sure if I really wanted to watch the series. I decided not to.
It wasn't like an action- drama like Blindspot and Quantico.
It was more like political drama like The West Wing and Madame Secretary.
As of today, ABC cancelled it after 2 seasons. I'm a little surprised because it's really good. Unless they move to another network.
I read this in the National Post in the Edmonton Journal. There was a longer article in the paper than the website.
