    Yeah, Bush Sr. was director of the CIA before becoming vice president and president.

    Saul doesn't play politics which is apparently why two of his former subordinates outrank him now.

    Right, thanks. It seemed weird, but if it's real then it's realistic.

    Man I hate shit like what happened in the last thirty seconds. Such a cliche.

    I can't wait to see how they hand wave Carrie getting re hired by the government. I guess she'd just threaten to sue them...

    More seriously, I hope she nails Brody sooner rather than later.

    Show's back on soon, only this time it is "Emmy-Award Winning Homeland".

    I was so pleasantly surprised at how many awards it wracked up, because it deserves them but I didn't expect it to beat out the favorites.

    Caught up with this show when I saw that it won so many emmy's. Might be my new favorite show. Really great stuff.

    Did they summarise season 1 at the start? I can barely remember most of it, and don't feel like rewatching it all.

    At the beginning of the first episode theres a fairly lengthy "Last season on Homeland" thing.

    This show is still killing it. Its sooo good.

    She's a wealthy, attractive teenage girl. If they didn't have ANY romance subplot for her, it would be hard to believe. I don't feel like they're bashing us over the head with it.

    I love this show but the premise is just so ridiculous, it's hard for me to describe the plot to someone and have them not be like "secret Muslims? In Congress? Is Michelle Bachmann the head writer?"

    If Michelle Bachmann were writing this, Carrie would be dutifully married and her husband would be the genius (also a prophet); she'd just pass along his divine inspiration to the CIA in pursuit of freeing the Holy Land. Brody would not be conflicted about whether or not he is a terrorist; he'd also force his wife and daughter to wear traditional muslim hijabs in the house.

    You know, it didn't bother me until somebody pointed it out....but seriously, why the fuck would you send your single most important and recognizable operative to do that? Like, the 'nobody else knows him' shit doesn't hold...you can TELL somebody who the tailor is.

    Yeah, the Brody stuff continues to be a little ridiculous. They didn't have anyone else who could do that?

    But the Carrie stuff is so amazingly well done that I don't really care. Also, looks like the plot will be giving Brody more, less contrived things to do in the future, so hopefully that was the last of his terrorist errands.

    The worst thing yet is Saul holding intel back. WTF, man. Yeah, the CIA are all dicks, but what the hell. I guess he realizes the show is now going to go into the worst contrived shit ever to keep it going unless Saul and Carrie die in the next few minutes and he didn't wanna die.

    Yeah, there is literally no fucking way he would hold that back. It defies reason.

    What is he holding back? In the episode he showed Carrie first but didn't say he was only showing Carrie and then in the preview hes shown showing the boss man whose name escapes me (David?).

    Unless we're talking about different things.

  • mcdermottmcdermott Registered User regular
    He would have used whatever channels were used to send back all the other intelligence (which they were going over, remember?) to send back notification as to, at the least, the general content he found on the card. Before leaving Beirut. You find a secure phone, and you fucking tell somebody what you just learned.

  • emp123emp123 Registered User regular
    Whats to say he didnt? He showed Carrie before showing others but that doesnt mean others werent told about the content of the intel.

    I freely admit I was pretty tired when I watched it so...

    Hmm....yeah, he says "the one piece of intel that Estes and <whoever> haven't seen yet."

    I suppose that could mean they were told of the content, but haven't actually seen the video itself. I took it to mean they weren't actually aware of it, though. It felt, in context, like that was the implication, but I can definitely see your way as well.

    EDIT: I mean, your way makes infinitely more sense of course...but we are living in a world where a terrorist cell sends its single most important and recognizable operative as an errand boy, so...
