    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.

    Good start. I like that they seem to broaden the scope instead of keeping with Carrie/Brody.

    Just started watching this. It somehow escaped my radar until now but all of the awards got my attention.

    In case anyone else is curious, the whole first season is available on demand.

    +1. Also like the "mole/reporter/press woman" that they introduced.

    Exciting start to the season, not electric but I like how they are trying to build something up.

    I think the show lost a little something once you realized that Brody was an actual terrorist and it wasn't all in Carrie's head. Of course it had to get to that point, otherwise the show would have just gotten silly after a while. Carrie is still one of the best written female characters in recent tv memories and I have faith that the writers can keep this interesting.

    No spoilers just a few clips I've seen around. They chop up the clips anyway so you have no idea what to think... I like it that way!

    Holy shit I just watched last night's episode. What a way to end with a cliffhanger.

    Plus fucking one! That actually gave me a little chill. The previews look pretty interesting as well.

    Amazing! Can't wait for the next episode. That one was a cracker.

    Anyone else HATE the opening scenes?

    They way they did it was so clever, from the previews, I thought it was Saul being killed in the forest and that lady was talking about Saul when she said he is the only one that knows the truth.

    Can't wait to see how they monitor him and how they react to Carrie being right all along.

    Only a spoiler if you didn't watch the 3rd episode. I don't believe in ruining things.

    Really thought they got the real SD card and Saul didn't make copies to set up Saul and Carrie vs. the World. My big issue with this episode was the writers didn't convince me why Brody had to get the tailor himself. My only thought is Nazir wanted to bring in Brody so they could kill him if the video got out.

    Not sure what was the purpose of that scene with a fake SD card getting taken away... Maybe it'll pop up again.

    Re: Brody & the tailor - There have been a few things like that on the show, seemingly pointless, but that's TV, I would like to hope the actual secret service agencies don't operate like they are portrayed on TV!
