I thought the emotions were off. The magnitude of such an attack would grind everything to a halt. With everyone getting alerts and texts, a nightclub full of people wouldn't be continuing to party like nothing had happened. It would be close to bedlam. There would be people crying in the streets. The emotion in the room where the new President was being sworn in would be raw. Everyone there would have personally known at least one person killed. It was just all wrong. I'm someone who was born and raised in DC and lived in Manhattan on 9/11. I have personal experiences to draw on. This is not how people would react to the government being decapitated. The panic and fear that would hang in the air like smoke from the blast was absent. The lack of realism ruined it for me.
Didn't think I'd like this show, but I'm absolutely enthralled
After "24" finally a worhty successor for Kiefer Sutherland with great potential. Loved the pilot, I'm very excited to see how it continues! Can't wait to see the next one! I'm in!
