FINALLY!!

/though I didn't mind it as much as most
//how could you not like the end of last week's episode?
///okay okay, there were no boobies, but that's not so bad, right?

I immediately stopped caring when the episode's "previously on Homeland..." segment started with Dana's subplot.

I'm not sure if Brody is really all that relevant anymore, but his family is definitely not...

I actually really liked the first two episodes.  I wanted to see what it was like to be the family a terrorist (or at least assumed terrorist) leaves behind.  that sounded really interesting.  Then they sent Dana and Leo on a road trip and it was just awful, especially the whole "is he a killer hiding a deep, dark past" part.

I still want to see what it's like for Jessica, Dana, and Chris (poor Chris, always at karate practice) after Nicholas is assumed to be a terrorist, but it feels like they have no interest in telling that story.

I don't mind the idea of this... I just don't think it is at all important enough to not only share equal billing as Carrie's storyline (which isn't all that interesting either, but for different reasons) but to also eclipse Brody's storyline.

At this point, I'm guessing Brody is an insurance policy for The Magician in case Carrie screws him over.

Chris, Brody's only son, and surely deeply traumatized by his father and hero turning out to be a mass murderer.

But hey! He likes video games! Let's see how Dana is doing! And remember Mike?

Carrie kidnapper: "Don't make a sound"

Engages her in conversation less than 30 seconds later.

The only thing interesting in that episode was that Saul got screwed out of the chief position.   And his speech about it was very well executed.

Who's paying to keep him alive and flush with heroin?  I assumed it was Magician.

Unless the CIA is keeping him there and made it look like Magician was paying his rent.

Meanwhile, on "Boardwalk Empire", Jeffrey Wright reads the phonebook in the most evil, bone-chilling manner.

Eh, I'm done with Brody.  He should have blown the vest at the end of season one.  His story seems done to me, unless they're going to play some kind of redemption arc, which I don't think I would be interested in either.

But I understand that different people want different things out of shows and my Homeland is a pretty niche view.

I loved that. Mandy can make anything sound awesome when he biatchslaps someone

Say what you want about Jack Bauer's stupid daughter - at least she was hot as hell.  With Dana, we don't even get that.

At least he hasn't fallen into the dark pit of breakfast obsession.

Well, when you're offering a show that only has 12 episodes per season and you waste three of those on stage business and boring crap, you can expect that most of your viewing audience will desert you.

This!  Not to mention they ended up reducing Michael K Williams to another typical black stereotype.  WTFark is wrong with these writers not using their talent?  i seriously expect both Boardwalk and Homeland send their best characters/actors over the shark any time.
