    You guys still watching? What do you think so far?

    This week's episode was pretty intense. Figured Alison would go this route...but wouldn't the documents incriminate her somehow? And I feel that Dar Adal (or however you spell that) is being made out to be a lot less intelligent than in previous years. The guy keeps getting duped.


    Claire Danes has gotten hotter and hotter over the years.

    Was laid up over thanksgiving week after having surgery so the wife and I caught up on this season. I really like it. Definitely agree that Dar Adal keeps looking like an idiot. Only thing I don't like is the whole thing with Quinn randomly being picked up and brought into this terror cell about to unleash an attack. Kinda ridiculous.

    I caught the latest ep last night. Great stuff!

    Almost lost it (fine, I teared up) when Saul held his arms out to Carrie and said "come here".

    The ending with Quinn was disturbing; glad he's got an ally in the one young man.

    Fucking Allison. She'll play this somehow.

    And yeah, Claire Danes - much as I loved her in My So-Called Life - has really blossomed over time.

    Yeah, I dig it a lot. Though agreed on him believing Alison's story. They tried to put Saul on a lie detector immediately and nothing like that for this...forget about it.

    Quinn is badassman.

    So...did she or didn't she?

    I say yes.

    And I'm a bit miffed (rightly so) that it'll be another near-year till it starts up again.

    Really liked Billions. Well done, Showtime!

    God I hope she said no. Not a fan of that guy.

    Didn't realize Billions started yet. Looks really good

    I subscribe to Showtime, but there's a "freeview" thing where the Billions opener is available now (via TWC if you have it). Yeah, stellar cast, writing, acting, the whole thing.

    You didn't / don't like Quinn?! Or do you mean Carrie's boss, who I always thought had a thing for her? He's off.

    a bit late to the party, but I just watched the first 3 episodes last night on netflix. I can't recall ever seeing an actress "freshen" herself up like that in a TV show. :blush:

    Hugh, enjoy the whole party.

    That first ep laid me on my ass with its intensity.

    Let us know how you like the ride!

    It seems a bit fragmented, like...just get to it already. Dragging out the storyline.

    I want to see Quinn rise up and kick ass again.

    I gave it about 15 minutes last night but my head was elsewhere; will on-demand it later.

    I like it. Super slow but interesting story lines. Negative is how slow it is so far, positive is minimal crying/crazy Carrie.

    Shit got real last night.

    The ending gave me one of those much-missed "oh SHIT" moments. Really looking forward to next week.

    CIA?

    I'm assuming Dar set this up somehow to force the potus elects hand to take radical islamic terror more seriously while also trying to destroy Carrie's reputation in hopes she stops advising potus elect......Dar is this season's enemy....no?

    Dar appears to be the heal in this season, though the president elect is interesting from that perspective.

    I get the sense they thought HRC would be the PE in reality, and that their version would fit or coincide somehow.

    Dare to Dar! He's a fucking awesome player in this, as are the other three.

    That alt right talk show was definitely a mockery of Alex Jones.

    Real life is almost as scary as Homeland!

    Haven't started the season and it is piling up on my DVR. For some reason, I don't have much of an urge to watch it. Has it gotten any better than the last couple seasons?

    You didn't like the last two? I thought they were good. This is good too...different
