      This show really gets on my nerves. I know it's the little details, but they drive me crazy.

      Carrie's bogus Canadian passport wasn't signed... I was waiting for the Lebanese immigration inspector to ask her to sign it. Then she would freak out and accidently sign her own name. End of show.

      Brody should have been checked on his way out of the secure facility for any papers... the security officer should have noticed the notes. End of show.


      Argh.

      Which scene was this? Meeting Estes at CIA? He had his note book on him. His note for password was in his pocket on the way in, which I'd imagine it wasn't all that implausible to be missed by a metal detector and a pat down. On top of the fact that he is a sitting congressman....

      Not as ridiculous as sending a text in the op room in 2nd ep anyway...just the sheer fact that he can even get a signal in pentagon...

      2nd season has been pretty interesting so far, the dynamics obviously has to change from the 1st season, so its interesting to see how they are taking it...I wonder how that SD card ended up in Beirut....and quite unbelievable it was taken by accident...

      I'm not sure what experiences you've ever had with a SCIF, but lets just say you shouldn't be walking out with a notebook of classified information, sitting congressman or not. Things like this should be checked when leaving a secure facility.

      Don't event get me started on the cell phone in the Pentagon...

      I realize that you have to suspend belief watching a TV drama, but major devices that drive the story like this are a little much for me.

      Yeah, it's getting a bit far-fetched. At least now Saul knows Carrie was right about Brody all along. Don't get me wrong, I really like the show, but Brody being able to send a text message from that situation room was a bit much. And really, nobody noticed? And I guess Saul is going to use the video of Brody to get Carrie exonerated and reinstated in the CIA. The big question, is what do they do w/ Brody? Do they turn him into a double agent? Do they sit on him, and let him lead them to Nazir? Going to be interesting to see how that plays out.

      You bring up some good points.. I guess I'll keep watching.

      Saul and Carrie make this show for me - the rest of the characters/actors are a little too wooden.

      I think Saul's character is great. The first episode of S2 was okay but the second episode was great. The ending was one of those "no ****ing way" cliffhangers. I can't wait for the third ep.

      Left me hanging the same way. Cannot wait until Ep 3. This show is my fav right now. Brody texting in the situation room was a bit much.

      I agree. That was excessive and unrealistic but I'm really curious to see what Saul does with the recording.

      Great show, but you definitely need to keep reality checked at the door.

      Saul gonna die episode 3. no other way around it

      There's no way they can kill a guy like Saul. He's too integral. He's probably my favorite character on that show too.

      I keep skipping over the family scenes. It's just filler.

      i kinda liked last night's episode. I always imagine crap like that would happen to me if I was ever doing something shady. Sgt Brody trying to talk to his wife all out of breath knowing that he was screwed and couldn't make the fundraiser....

      and claire danes really plays the crazy/manic role really well.

    20. 10-16-2012 06:10 PM #90
      Wow this looks good, can't believe I missed it, I don't have showtime though. Anyone know where I can catch up?

      I'm wondering just how bad the PTSD and Stockholm Syndrome are?

      I'm starting to believe I'm watching a TV show.

      Otherwise, the CIA wouldn't be so f'ing stupid to keep using uncontrollable Carrie in their investigations.

      Yeah, being right about Brody has no bearing on the fact that she's a total loose cannon. She totally screwed the pooch w/ that one, for her own personal vendetta.

      I'm wondering what's going to happen over the next six episodes?

      Can they turn him? Triple agent?

      Will Estes make him vanish in order to save his career?
