Critic Reviews for Designated Survivor Season 3

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

As political drama Designated Survivor season three has the smoke-streaming-from-its-ears quality of a Donald Trump stump-speech. As bursting-at-the-seams pot-boiler it is magnificent.

Hannah Wells deserved a better story. Hannah Wells probably even deserved a better show.

I loved the back and forth between Kirkman and his therapist as he tried to find a reason to justify his decisions -- a justification which painted him in a better light.

Jun 10, 2019 | Rating: 4.2/5 | Full Review…

There are some problems, but Designated Survivor Season 3 is a definite improvement from Season 2.

Jun 7, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

This is not a positive review, but the third season is a marked improvement over the two that preceded it; this is still not a show that can manage to be three shows at once, but at least now some of those shows are marginally interesting.

    Very disappointing turn after Netflix took over. Specifically pushing the PC agenda, graphic gay sex scene and transgender agenda. Not my cup of tea anymore, done watching

    Very enjoyable show.

    I loved the first two seasons and got hooked on it. One reason was because it didn't have offensive language! So why the heck did they decide to change? You can be a great show without vulgarity believe it or not

    Loved Season 1 and 2. Watched the first episode and was appalled at the fact this has been turned into a vehicle for the promotion of political correctness. Away from the propaganda, it felt totally devoid of any storyline at all. Sorry Netflix - I pay to be entertained, not to be fed an approved viewpoint (of which I don't approve). I don't think my subscription will last much longer.

    Wow, what a disappointment, but not surprising that Neflix infiltrated a great series with their agenda.

    Great season 3. Really looking forward to season 4 now.. The story line was great.

    One of my favourite shows, anticipated season 3, but episode 1 was rediculus. Lines where forced, stretched to reach MA rating, and over all distractingly awkward, like a 10 year old just learning how to sweat. It was just silly. And the forced social situations were, again, just weird and unnatural. It felt sophomoric, like 2 kids at the junior high dance, first kiss. All in all, it was painful to watch, the scoring was uninspired, unimaginative, and uninteresting. First, Netflix ruins Marvell shows, now this. Bye, bye Netflix, I'm out.

    It all about Alexandria Cortéz agenda and socialist content with lgbtbbq written all over the script. Over all very unwatchable.
