Saturday afternoon, there was absolutely no College Football worth watching for awhile, so I started doing some bumping around on my Apple TV. Came across this one, and was instantly hooked. It's five episodes in so far. I watched the first 2.

Anyone else checked this one out yet? Wednesday evenings on ABC.

You will definitely like it. I've been hooked since the first episode and it has continued to to get better with each one.

I'm watching it. Pretty good. I wanted Jack back, but this will do.

I think it's about to take a House of Cards turn.

The ABC political drama Designated Survivor is right up my alley. I stumbled upon it while fooling around with the new TV app in iOS 10.2 along with the ABC app. I’ve binge-watched all available episodes and am anxiously awaiting what will follow.

The show stars Kiefer Sutherland, of 24 fame, which earned him an Emmy Award, a Golden Globe Award, two Screen Actors Guild Awards and two Satellite Awards, and Kal Penn of Harold & Kumar fame. Both are beloved actors of mine and I’m thoroughly enjoying their respective performances on this show.

Just learned that, myself. Very disappointing to have such a long wait ahead.

I'm not sure if you caught it, but I was being sarcastic. Game of Thrones viewers have to wait until at least June or July instead of the normal April.
Yeah, I caught it. I was poking fun as well. I'm not so happy about GoT being so far off. I'm jonesing for a new episode.
