OT: Favourite Current Television Programme?

Post by LeFromage on Tue 06 Nov 2012, 01:09

Seriously? Ask Santa for a couple of 24 box sets for Chrimbo - they're a riot.

Silly beyond belief, but no less engrossing for it.

Homeland S02E06. A surprise sledgehammer.

Spoiler:
Quinn, Carrie and the team are tracking Roya and see she is dealing with some swathy Middle Eastern type, but they have absolutely no intelligence on him. So Carrie asks Brody to tell Roya that while he was over at Carrie's place apre-bonk, he overheard her on the phone mention the arrival of a Hezbollah operative. As Quinn and a team are going over the Gettysburg tailor's joint with a fine-toothed comb, just as Quinn detects a false wall, a SWAT type team burst in and mows down everyone. They cut into the wall Quinn was looking at and take away a large trunk - I assume full of explosives or some terrorist gear. The team is lead by the swathy Middle Eastern comrade of Roya's. We've lost Galvez, but Quinn seems to have survived, though badly injured. Shame, I don't like him. Cool

Ep ends with Carrie spitting in anger at Brody, assuming he spilled to Roya, which he denies. She looks to be hovering around a breakdown again.

Other developments: Finn is pissed off with Dana after she fronts him about the woman they hit. Dana went to the hospital and met the woman's daughter. The woman died shortly after. Finn is only concerned for himself, presumably because a scandal involving him is the last thing his Dad's Presidential campaign needs.

Mike and Lauder home in on Brody's involvement in Walker's death, with Mike confirming one missing 9 mm bullet (the calibre that Walker was killed with) from Brody's stash. Though the CIA warns Mike off, he fronts Jessica and tells her that Brody killed Walker. She doesn't want to believe it and tells Mike that Brody is working for the CIA, and to leave them alone.

Episode 6 done - pretty succinct recap above.

The pace of this season is mental but all the more thrilling for it - happy to go along with the more mental bits if it keeps this up.

Nope. And I heard Community was decent - and Alison Brie is spreadable - but I've yet to experience either, I'm sorry to say.

Homeland S02E07. Pretty good. Brody feeling the heat.

Spoiler:
Roya meets Brody in a park and says Brody is going to have to take a more important role after Gettysburg and that things are going to move fast. What was taken from Bassel's shop was enough C4 to level a Federal building.

Saul goes to see Aileen in prison and after she plays hard ball and demands a cell with a window, she tells Saul the name of the Middle Eastern guy working with Roya. The FBI storms his house but he turns out to be someone Aileen knew from her time in the Middle East, but not the terrorist. Saul races back to the holding room that Aileen is in, to find that she has mortally wounded herself with glass from a wine bottle that Saul has brought to soften her up. She had sent them on a wild goose chase to give herself time to commit suicide, which she successfully does in a pool of blood. Saul beats himself up over being sloppy and emotional.

Brody is feeling the heat, so the still recovering Quinn tells her to empower him. Galvez is still alive but critical.

Carrie fronts Mike and tells him to back off on his investigation of Brody, as it is jeopardising a matter of national security, and that he shouldn't need to be told this 2nd time.

Brody, Jessica, Dana and Chris go to a fundraiser at the house of Rex Henning, a Vietnam vet, who admires and likes what he sees in Brody and says he doesn't like Walden but is looking 8 years ahead - for Brody to run for President after serving time as the VP. Carrie meets Brody near Henning's place and they share a passionate kiss. Brody wants to know if she's playing him, and she promises she's not, but reinforces how important he is to the CIA under the current circumstances.

Jessica and Cynthia (Walden's wife) catch Dana and Finn arguing, and Dana takes the opportunity to spill about the hit-and-run. Jessica is mortified but Cynthia says she'll handle it. Brody fronts Walden who confirms that the CIA will clean up the hit-and-run, but Brody doesn't want it swept under the rug. Finn is sent away, probably never to be seen again.

Brody takes Dana to the cops but is intercepted by Carrie, who tells Nick that if he does this the whole deal is off. Dana calls bullshit and storms off, with Brody chasing.

It's all getting very messy, with something big about to go down, but with the CIA having no clue what it is.

Homeland S02E08. OK if a little slow in places. Brody teetering.

Spoiler:
Ep revolves around Brody losing it and no longer caring about the CIA deal. Carrie uses the hairy magnet to get him back in the game, after doing a runner with him. Esters and Quinn want the operation shut down, Carrie banished and Brody thrown in jail. However, Carrie's smart enough to use a motel "safe house" which Saul can track down. He does and bugs it after convincing the team to hear Carrie out - being their only chance to keep the game going.

Quinn, Saul (head in hands) and the team listen to Brody and Carrie shagging then hear Carrie convince him to keep his communications with Roya going. He does and sets up a meeting with Roya on an isolated road at night. Roya is one jump ahead of the CIA and has arranged a helicopter, which takes her and Brody away.

Dana struggles through the ep with the hit and run death of the woman. She tracks down the house of the woman they killed, but gets a spray from the daughter, who then demands she not go to the cops. The CIA has paid off the family to keep everything quiet, and she doesn't want Dana jeopardising the arrangement.

Ep ends with Brody being taken to a warehouse where he meets (I'm pretty sure) Abu Nazir.

Homeland S02E09. Frikkin complex.

Spoiler:
Carrie brings in Brody after his meet with Abu Nazir. Seems a hit is planned on a soldier homecoming that includes the Vice President. But Brody doesn't seem to be giving the full story, which revolves around a Roya newscrew detonating a bomb to kill many.

Jessica, Dana and Chris are taken to a safe house in DC under the watchful eye of Mike, who promptly shags Jessica, as you would.

The CIA moves in on the terrorist bomb crew, but there is no sign of Abu Nazir.

Meanwhile Saul and Virgil are doing some investigation on Quinn. He seems to have a Green Card wife and kid and evidence that he is a gun sniper. They get evidence of him meeting with a high level CIA operative, Dara Dahl, who seems to be operating under Estes' command.

Quinn pilots a limo to pick up Brody and is ready to kill him, but Estes tells him to stand down. Quinn tells Brody he is watching his back.

Homeland S02E10 - Mid-season cliffhanger. Ferkin gripping.

Spoiler:
Ep revolves around Abu Nazir's kidnapping of Carrie after broadsiding her car with his truck. He threatens to kill her (proving it via smartphone camera) unless Brody can get the serial number of VP Walden's pacemaker, which is on a small defrib unit in his office. Nazir's IT guru can use it to make the pacemaker go haywire and kill him.

After a tense lead up Brody gets the unit in the VP's office but won't text the serial number unless Carrie is released safely. Brody swears on the immortal soul of Nazir's son that he will send the number once he has proof Carrie is safe. Nazir shows her running off to Brody, who then, after hesitating, sends the serial number. Nazir immediately sends it on to the IT guy who arcs up Walden's pacemaker. Nick then gets in the VP's face and tells him what he thinks of him and that he can shove the potential VP role. As Walden struggles Nick tells him "You don't get it, do you? I'm killing you", and the VP dies. Nick then calls frantically for a doctor. Neat.

Carrie stops a trucker and calls Saul, who sends a detail to her location so they can get Nazir. However Saul is stopped on Estes' orders while Quinn and others continue. Earlier Saul had met with Dara Dahl, who is Black Ops, and who Quinn works for. Saul fronted Estes who basically told him to fark off. Still not sure what Estes is up to, but it seems shonky.

Finn visits Dana to explain he is being eaten up by the death of the hit and run victim and that Dana is the only person he can talk to. Dana tells him that any chance of a relationship broke when the woman's head hit the windscreen.

Ep ends with dumb bint Carrie going back to the abandoned factory where Nazir held her, making a shitload of noise!! She walks into a dark room...

Don't go anywhere - HBO/Showtime don't have mid-seasons. There's only two episodes left, and they'll be coming up in the next few weeks, same bat time, same bat channel.
