Season 2 just kicked off.

I'm a total sucker for twisty, turny spy stuff.

So, anyways. Carrie is annoyingly bonkers. I mean, I get that they had to f*ck her up a bit, otherwise, with the mighty US intelligence machine behind her, Brody didn't stand a chance, but it's all a bit twitchy and irritating.

I liked Jessica's 'I married a MARINE' freak out. But srsly, just how well does the powers that be vet VP candidates, ffs?


Also,

Someone higher up has to be dirty, right? I mean, like Saul or Estes. Because there's a lot of info that seems to be coming out of the top of the agency.


Let the paranoia and conspiracy theories begin!

I'm not going to read this. Just saying it's high on my "to watch" list. I mean season 1.
7 yrs ago - Tuesday 10/9/12 - 11:48:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
is this a thing I should watch? all I know is that it won a ton of emmys over Breaking Bad and I've never even heard of it

YESSSSS. Go and watch it!

It's a slow burn, but it's really well acted. The tension is ratcheted up so brilliantly. Certain things stretch credulity a little, but it's got proper 'OMFG, WTF??!!!' moments.

It does it's best to steer clear of overt partisanship, which I like.

Best show on TV right now.

Brodys wife sucks, though.

Love this show - one of the best things out of America in the past few years.

But she's hot, so it doesn't matter!

[If you were wondering what Firefly's Inara has been up to since the show was cancelled, Morena Baccarin is Brody's wife.]

Yeah. Just a show that has never piqued my interest.

Also, Dr. Who bores me.
7 yrs ago - Monday 10/15/12 - 6:23:37 AM EST (GMT-5)
OMG! SAUL'S SEEN BRODY'S VID. OMG.


This program may cause me to hyperventilate, ffs.
7 yrs ago - Monday 10/15/12 - 3:46:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah. The episode last night was the bee's knee's.

Carrie isn't so much annoying anymore.

O.M.F.G. The brown sticky stuff is hitting the silver twirly thing in a major way. What the f*ck is there left to do with the rest of this series?

YES. I predict lots of cat and mouse CIA interviewing. Brody becomes a triple agent?


[I appreciate I'm pretty much only talking to Orion, here.]

i am so on the edge of my seat, i like the complete unknown plot trajectory now the first season is over which felt a bit more like we could see where it was going
6 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 10/25/12 - 6:05:19 AM EST (GMT-5)

Yes. This season I'm on watching it when on Channel 4. My friend at work gets the US versions, so I keep having to avoid him!

Hooray! I like that it's fairly realistic, in terms of pace. Plenty of build-up, spates of action, then quieter moments.

i have 3 episodes left of the 1st season.
i didn't like that she slept with brody.

but she did come on to saul strangely that one time.

I didn't like Carrie and Brodie together aat first, but actually, it makes a lot of sense. Brodie is completely damaged - see that he can't have sex with Jessica at all when he comes back. He actually explains it pretty well, when he says he fears he may contaminate her, that there's so much history between him and his wife, and he's now not the man he was.

With Carrie, he can relax, because it doesn't have the weight of history.

As for Carrie, she uses sex for control. When she fears that she's losing touch with Saul, it's a method of trying to win him over. Of course, he's repulsed, because he sees her as a student/daughter figure.

Carrie has such a loss/disconnection of self, that she uses sex as a means of proving worth. We see her going out to pick up random strangers at bars, etc. tbc
