This season has been decent. It's a bit better than last year, but where in the hell is Brody?!

Not too bad of a series. I particularly enjoy the realism in regard to executive agency tactics, which is generally overlooked. Saul lying at the Senate hearing while Carrie goes to the mental institution as a ploy? These things happen all the time in real life, the intelligence community calls them psy-ops (psychological operations). Psychological operations are a constant in CIA/FBI textbooks. The method is used to trick and or influence the public in an attempt to protect intelligence assets. It is also used to draw out other parties, it is like a game of chess.

 

Another interesting hint of realism was when the judge told Carrie, "when you signed up with the CIA you signed away some of your Constitutional rights." Again, this is true. In most areas of the military, you are required to sign away certain Constitutional rights. This is voluntary (nobody forces you to join the military), you waive these rights with your signature.

 

Most people do not understand this before they sign, but it is true nevertheless. I am glad the series adds in the little details like that.

Seriously? Don't know how this will continue in season 4, or if I'll watch for that matter.

In a series based on 3 main characters, I can't see how this works without one of them.

I would watch the first episode of season 4 and then decide. I had the same reaction.

And I'm starting to wonder if this has anything to do with the rumors of tension that Claire Danes and Damian had off screen...
