Yeah, I was not a big fan of the swing from political thriller that was mainly focused on conspiracy with a healthy side of “how Washington works, abridged edition” to West Wing Lite. The addition of Michael J. Fox, as much as I like and respect him, seemed like stunt casting where none was needed, and the storyline with the Russian woman that is now appearing to implicate Emily was just stupid.
I’m sad to see the show end, but I’m also kind of OK with it ending now versus watching it deteriorate further with another season of yet another show runner and all new writing room doing their take on whatever loose plot ends need tying up and how they think Kirkman’s White House should function.
I still wish we had President Kirkman instead of our current POTUS though. Hell, I wish there was even a President Kirkman to vote for in ANY election. The whole idea that he was there to serve the best interests of the American people may have been naïve, but it gave me hope that someone, somewhere was watching, and taking notes.
