Representative Brody

The VP asks Brody to run for office. Someone finally asks why the CIA are getting away with operating on American soil. Carrie and co take over a bank to harass a diplomat. Brody talks to Mike, who still does not apologise. Mike is still a tool.

Carrie’s bluff is called and so she ups the ante. Then she hurls herself at Brody. Where is the President during all this? An attempt to capture Walker is a park is suitably tense. This was okay, the show is finally engaging me. It’s better than ‘Law & Order: LA’ that’s for sure.

Best Lines:
“He doesn’t mean that.”
“Yes I do.”

“Yummy yummy yummy.”

The Vest

Successional protocol has the VP on lockdown. Carrie’s maniac. Dana rebels and Saul finally finally gets a clue that Carrie is bipolar. Carrie’s off her meds and going psycho. The VP is a git. Brody makes a metaphor laden speech on the battle of Gettysburg, no-one knows what he really means.

Brody gets a disturbing ‘gift’, Chris is stupid, Saul sets up Carrie’s wall of crazy and the Brody’s do it in a motel. That motel mattress is probably as hygienic as a brothel mattress. The delights of sexposition. Dana annoys and Brody blows up Carrie’s life. This was good.

Best Lines:
“He maims en-masse.”

“That’d kill her security clearance forever.”

“I wrote a 45 page manifesto declaring I’d reinvented music. The Professor I handed it to escorted me to student health...I wasn’t even in his class.”

“That is a mischaracterization!”

“Sometimes I think I need to empty my refrigerator and set it on fire.”
