1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Well, there's our answer to how they will have a third season! Crazy.

    Maybe a bit over the top. No bomb sniffing dogs at the entrance to the CIA? They just let a guy move a car like that into a non-parking space?

    Why would they leave the ceremony early? The guy was about to be a VP running mate and suddenly he walks out of a service dedicated to the VP?

    And how are they just allowed to roam around into someone's office at the CIA like that?

    Not the best finally.

    Good points. I really hope season 3 won't just be Carrie trying to convince everyone he's innocent. Something like the Bourne movies would be good.

    I think the finale was a bit of an anti-climax....

    Is Saul the guy behind it? That is the question on everyone's lips.

    Brody should have died at the end of Season 1.

    Or last night. She could have left the service and he stays and gets knocked off. Now their relationship will be this endless wish you were here bullshit.

    Oddly, last night I thought the mushy talk was pretty well executed, it was the rest of it that lacked. Wanted to see Brodywife's tatties one more time too. Just give us a change of clothes scene or something.

    Me either. Anyone else think that hebrew chant was a bit strange?

    That's not strange at all. It's the jewish prayer for the dead and he is a jew standing in front of 200 dead bodies.

    It came across as a political statement to me.

    Best shot of the episode for me was the white sheet body landing in the water shot from below. That gave me chills.

    Now that's really weird. Not sure how to interpret this.

    Simple: it came across as a political statement.

    Well, it came through your mind as a political statement. I don't quite understand how a jewish man reciting the prayer for the dead in front of dead bodies can "come across" as a political statement. It puzzles me but I won't dwell on it, since I'm pretty sure I won't like the answers.

    Did I call it. . . or did I call it?

    My money's on the CIA guy with the stitches being the one who moved Brody's car.
    Likely met with Nazir when he was in hiding at the plant. . .


    Season 2 wasn't quite as good as Season 1 but the bar was set pretty high.
    Its a great show that consistently delivers.
    Will kop Season 2 for friends/family and eagerly wait for Season 3.

    Ditto.
    Seems like a huge reach for me.

    Don't then because your implication seems like a huge reach to me.

    Not as enthusiastic about S3. They've done ok with the series but there is real potential here to blow it.

    The better question is: what's Brody going to do now?

    Do you think he's found out in a Muslim country? Afghanistan?
