Quotes

Tom Kirkman: [while standing in the rotunda of the Capitol Building after rebuilding it is complete] They broke ground here in 1793. The British burned it down in 1814, but we rebuilt it. Patrick Lloyd blew it to pieces, we rebuilt it again. It's just masonry and paint. Why do you think it means so much?
Mike Ritter: Because it's a symbol, sir.
Tom Kirkman: A symbol that nearly bankrupted us. You honestly think this glorified office building is worth $7 billion?
Mike Ritter: No, sir. I think it's worth a whole lot more.
Tom Kirkman: Damn right.

A mediocre start to season 2
1 February 2019 | by adamsosnowskiSee all my reviews

Season 1 started with an awesome episode which kept me tied to the chair until the middle of the season. Since then the show has become worse, the acting artificial and the writing lazy.

I hoped for a new start with season 2, but unfortunately it was more of the same. POTUS keeps making speeches for no reason, Agent Wells still is fighting all alone against the biggest group of terrorists ever and most dialogues with Emily are just painful to watch and hear. Instead of a strong women the character seems arrogant, boring and unlikeable.

The plot involving the terrorists on the airplane was poorly written and both ambasadors are portrayed as dumb and goofy idiots. And all of a sudden there is an old friend of POTUS on the plane to make it all more personal, but that didn't work either as there is no real connection between POTUS and his "friend".
