What’s so good about Designated Survivor?

Kiefer SutherlandOK, not strictly SFF related, but we’ll call it a related look at narrative structure and move on, shall we …

In descending order of brilliance:

  1. Kiefer Sutherland (who by the way has a lot of names – Kiefer William Frederick Dempsey George Rufus Sutherland)
  2. The cheesy dialogue
  3. The plot – you don’t need to pay any attention whatsoever
  4. The constant walking along corridors imparting info dumps
  5. It’s the closest thing to 24, without being 24

Join me next time when I will be sharing the benefits of cheese, standing on one leg, and keeping your ginger nuts out of the biscuit tin.
