    I don't think they showed it, but didn't Annie said she was going on her on and taking vacation?

    Agreed on the "turn off your brain when you watch part"

    I, for one, am getting tired of the "turn off your brain" so you can watch teevee mantra. If I wanted to "turn off my brain" it would be while I'm doing something other than that....

    Then you should just watch shows that stimulate your brain. But don't expect EVERY show to meet that criteria. Not every show is even designed to or meant to. This show is not for you. Nor is most of the USA summer stuff like Burn Notice or Royal Pains. Plenty of other shows on TV, or other things to do.

    I think the affair is purely a cover story. He's having to resign because of his involvement in the shady goings on in Colombia, but obviously he can't say that to the bureau.

    ...and that's exactly what I plan to do if this season of CA doesn't improve quickly. I know it's only been one episode, but I don't previously recall this show being so stupid...

    But it's never been a show you watch for brain stimulation. It's not that type of show. That's what I don't get. I'm not sure what you are expecting here. It's never going to be Downton Abbey, or even Mad Men. Perhaps it wasn't as far fetched before? Maybe. But I don't think it's exponentially different than what it's always been. Annie has always been a spy who does her own thing. She's done it for the whole run of the show. She's gone rogue almost every season. I'm not that thrilled with the CIA director resigning storyline yet, but they need to change it up some. We'll see.

    I never said it was a show for "brain stimulation". There's a VAST difference between what I call a stupid show and one that can be entertaining plus cause you to think a bit and "brain stimulation". Those three options are quite different. I would prefer this show not be as stupid as this has become; it used to be in the middle of the spectrum I just mentioned. If it continues as it started this season, I would brand it "stupid"....
