Season one and most of two had me on the edge of my seat. I was engaged in both the actually plot, built in mystery, the Carrie/Saul relationship, and the Carrie/Chemistry. Season two built from that with the excitement of the tense “Q&A” episode and the outstanding acting from all of it’s participants.
This season, I’m just not into anything that’s happening on level more than: Well, I’ve been watching it for this long, so let’s just see what happens.
Dana’s life, while starting off with some promise, has just spiraled down a well of obsolete story telling. Just because her scenes with Brody in the first few seasons were great, doesn’t mean she deserves her own sub plot. Carrie on and off her meds is nothing new and very unexciting, as is her pregnancy, which we know very little about. All of this season’s ‘twists’ make me trust the show less, as I don’t know what is real and what isn’t, but this time I have no true investment. At least in season one, the set up was that we didn’t know Brody’s motivation. Quinn is a interesting character, but I wished I cared more.
- This show made the mistake of taking Brody along for the ride. He truly serves no purpose anymore and is dragging down the plot. Granted he is barely on the show this season, but he isn’t relevant. Hopefully this season can move on from his story, as it isn’t enjoyable when he’s not in the crosshairs.
- This show usually finds some footing in the latter half of seasons, so I still have that TV viewer hope.
Keep on Watchin’!
