After Kirkman's TV interview, Seth observes that he "has more lives than a cat." The same comment is made about Jack Bauer, played by Kiefer Sutherland, in season three of 24 (2001). See more »

Goofs

During Kirkman's discussion with Alice in the Oval Office at the end of the episode, it is dark outside (as we can see through the windows when we look from Kirkman's point of view). But when the camera shifts to look at Kirkman's face, the light on the wall behind him is bright sun light. See more »

Starting to wear thin
29 November 2017 | by palescalesSee all my reviews

I like the premise of this show. I like a lot of the actors. I thoroughly enjoyed season 1 and I think the show has promise. But it is turning in a pretty weak performance this season. It has become pretty formulaic. I believe the writers can still turn it around and make it enjoyable again. I really hope they do.
