    I know how to tell that a series is one of the greats: I can't wait for the next episode. I wish I could barrel though all of the episodes on demand or DVD.

    The glances are supposed to give us a hint that Carrie's new Hispanic/Lebanese CIA partner is a mole.

    Should we look for Sgt. Brody and Carrie to have an affair?

    From the previews it looks very much like Sgt. Brody is a good guy and is going to help go after Al Qaida as I was suspecting. I dunno how they'll explain how this "terrorist we captured on the raid that freed you" was unknown until now.

    I can tell I am into a show when the credits roll, and i'm thinking it's over already??

    I'm thinking that Brody is going to put on a big show to get more credibility and to move up the ranks in counter-terrorism, at that point he will be activated...

    i love this show - can't wait until the next episode, which is always the telltale sign for me. i wish the entire season was out on DVD already so I could just watch from start to finish :)

    Just watched the first three episodes over the weekend, then the new episode last night. Really enjoying this show. Reminds me a lot of "Rubicon," with the anti-terrorist analysis part, but this show seems to also be including the other side of the story as well, rather than just having everything be theoretical.

    Clare Danes and Damien Lewis are giving amazing performances.

    So why is David Estes suddenly being so nice to Carrie? Does he want something, or is he really just trying to bury the hatchet?

    Why was everyone so horrified that he shot the deer? When they first saw it, I wondered why someone didn't suggest shooting it.

    what can i say, you inspired me :)



    he wants something, imo.


    um, it's at a big dinner party w/kids around? gunfire isn't something generally considered "normal" at such an event !!

    That political aide to the Vice-President had the worst southern accent this side of Hazzard County.

    Methinks they hired another Brit to show us how easy it is to do an American accent.

    Considering the thing he did right before that was try to turn one of Carrie's underlings against her, I'm guessing he wants to bury the hatchet...right between her shoulder blades.
    Shooting Bambi in front of the kids? Not cool.

    Firing a gun in a Washington suburb? Way not cool! I'm surprised they didn't show the inevitable massive display of firepower by the cops.

    Did anyone recognize the voice that warned the woman in the house and caused her to wave the flag to warn her husband away? I did not recognize the voice, but who knew he was being followed? Carrie, her partner (who was sitting next to her in the car and could not have made the call), and maybe Estes. I don't think the voice was Estes. So I guess either Carrie's partner or Estes signaled someone else, who then made the call.

    Or else somebody else was watching the professor, and saw that he was being followed. They weren't exactly subtle about it...

    Well he didn't know but who ever watches him knew or did someone on the inside from the briefing meeting tell them? Does the CIA have a mole?

    The voice sounded disguised/computerized to me.

    I think they would have warned the professor / his accomplice way sooner if it were someone at the CIA; it seemed like someone must have seen him being followed.

    Why did they rule him out after he drove seemingly randomly through some suburbs?

    I thought the same thing...who drives through a neighborhood randomly to go eat at a restaurant?

    it was an ethnic restaurant so i'd guess they just assumed it was a favorite hangout of his.

    Carrie seems willing to do almost anything in her pursuit of Brody, like when she offered herself to Saul. Brody is obviously attracted to her and was hitting on her. Will she now start a relationship with Brody so that she can observe him closely?

    I get the feeling that Brody will notice that someone touched his praying mat

    Which reminds me, I thought it was amusing that he went through his ritual hand-cleansing...and then cleaned his gun instead of praying. :D

    So when Carrie and Brody start with each other, which one will be the crazy one?
