This season has bored me to death and has only recently started to pick up. Only watching it cus of the last 4 seasons. Theres so much happening and so many new actors. The show ended for me when Brody was killed off. Its become the Carrie Mathieson show now.
Very true and a major pity

I'm angered by the fact that she is the main character of this show. And if she had to be the main character, then show different sides to the character. It's just rinse and repeat. Maybe it's just me but she's gotten extremely annoying to watch. I like the stuff not involving her.
Sounds like being annoyed at an omelette for having eggs, but to each his own, I guess.

I agree, Carrie is such an annoying main character. Very repetitive and boring now. You're a psychopathic bitch with mental health issues, we get it.

Homeland has turned into one of those shows that isn't all that, but strangely addictive for some reason.

Quinn is my favourite character at the moment, but even now they're trying to kill him off. Haven't they learnt from Brodie?

The season started very well but in the last two episodes they have made it all about Carrie. This show has some great characters and actors that can make it more better but the writers seems to be losing the plot. Hope it catches up fast

Didn't the guy who was looking after Quinn inject him with the stuff that counteracts that gas? So was Quinn faking it? Surely because Quinn will never die!
Episode 9 was cracking!

It didnt look like he was faking it. He had all the stuff coming out of his mouth but its Quinn. He will find a way out!

This series has suddenly sprung back to life over the past few episodes. The finale will certainly be very interesting.

I hope Alison gets killed to death, the bitch. :mad:

Best Season to date. It was in doldrums in the middle seasons, but with the conflicts & political tensions currently happening it's opened up a new scope for the writers to explore.

It's been brilliant. 3 was the weakest But the other have been top draw. It's evolved excellently though and stayed with the times. Watching the first series now it really does feel like a reflection of the time and you recognise how much the political spectrum had changed in such a short time.

I can't wait for the last episode though, funnily enough I'll be in Berlin as it's airing.

I can be the only one who wants the journalist lady, Laura whatsherface to die just as much as Allison? I get that what she's doing is right in principle, but my god, she's an annoying, smarmy bitch.

I don't want it to end, this series has been great.

Allison (despite Miranda Otto being gorgeous), Laura and Carrie can all feck off though.

Dar can feck off three times as much.

Quinn will save the day somehow, he's fecking Peter Quinn.

She's not doing it out of principles though. She's doing it out of pure "I'm a journalist and free speech is more important than the greater good and it will enhance my ego pig headed general shitiness."

Laura is the most annoying person on any show I'm currently watching.
Yep. Overtaken Wes from HTGAWM for me :lol:

Maybe I didn't phrase it right. While she's doing it out of her own selfish, "high horsey" principles, my point was that what she's actually doing(wanting transparency) isn't technically a bad thing (she's not a bad guy), it's just how she goes about doing it and her reasons that make her so unbearable.

She's taken over Felicity from Arrow for me. It has to do with my hatred for activists in general.

What a rubbish season finale. This whole season has been shite imo with only a couple of episodes being exciting. Quinn was wasted!

I gave up half way through Series 4...is it worthy of my time now that I can watch the rest of S4 and the whole of S5 on Netflix?

Yeah been watching. Will never be as good as the early stuff but it's still a good watch.

Dar is up to some fishy business!
Dar hired Carrie's neighbour who planted the Bomb and the blast was done by Dar so as to convince the President to fund war against terrorism

Yup that's what I've been thinking.
