Designated Survivor S3

Series 3 has been taken over by Netflix. And it’s a short 10 episode series. Gone is the attempt at humour in the second series. Now it’s more ‘West Wing’ or ‘Madam Secretary’.

An it’s a lot more topical, seeming to exist in a parallel world to the current Trump administration. Unfortunately there are far too many plot elements. The bio-terrorism threat seems tagged on to keep a few actors employed. The gay romance story was just unnecessary and the bed-hoping among major characters detracted from the politicking that was far more interesting.

Then in the final episode it did seem that the president was talking about our world and not his. So an OK series, but certainly not as good as the first series.
