Season three is a success.

[T]his set of episodes is ultimately so inessential that it doesn't explain why the series was revived anyway.

Packed with meaty plot developments and boosted by a larger and more diverse cast, it tackles topics ripped from the headlines.

Again, at this point, Designated Survivor is a full-blown poor man's West Wing, but there are worse things to be, especially in a campaign year for the show (I love Presidential campaigns).

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.

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.

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.
