Quotes

Seth Wright: Good evening. Thank you all for, uh, staying so late tonight. I know we've called you in a few times today. Uh, just a reminder, my name is Seth Wright.

Getting Hands Dirty
14 July 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Kirkman has been pushed as far as he can stand. He is an honorable man who deals in issues, not personalities. He has ideals and goals that he feels must be met. He has two adversaries in tow right now. The Governor of Michigan and the head of the Joint Chiefs. Both are clearly in violation of the Constitution as they try to set themselves up as dictators, or at best in violation of the President's role as head of the military. There are some great scenes here. This show gets more and more intense.
