I've been binge-watching the 2nd season of Designated Survivor. Yes, I know it is kind of corny and

definitely over the top (crises, crises out the wazoo!), but I still enjoy it. The actors are very good.. Keifer Sutherland is a smart, kind, compassionate man and his staff is terrific, always having his back. Here's the thing--I could easily see Obama in some of the situations, being calm, deliberative, listening to his advisers, always caring for the American people. And here's the other thing, when I first started watching I actually became deeply depressed trying to imagine trump in ANY of the scenarios, just never, nada. The contrast is beyond words. I know it's just a tv show, but still.......

1. I watched it a couple of months ago for a sanity break

Itís a little over the top dramatically, but the President is sane and decent, unlike real life today.

2. You're not the only one.

Had the same experience will watching the series. The realization that Donny doesn't care about the country is depressing. Add on top of his awfulness. He goes and surrounded himself with incompetent bottom feeders.

Only good thing is Netflix pick up the show and will stream season three.

5. I'm pretty sure it was cancelled due to low ratings, but Netflix picked it up. 3rd season coming up

7. So Netflix didn't just pick up reruns?

They're going to produce new shows?

4. I hate shows that get cancelled in mid-cliffhanger...

...like this one. Wish they could make a few wrap-up episodes. It still pisses me off that, 25 years later, we don't know who Nowhere Man, the Bruce Greenwood show, really was...

8. I had a hard time watching the first few episodes,

because Trump had just gotten into office and the Flynn shit was just starting up.

I finally started over and I like it. It's a good way to get away from what is really going on, for a few hours.
