Make the most of the intelligent and cunning look on Carrie’s face in the photo above, because you will not see it again.
A rabbit caught in the car headlights has more composure than she exhibits as an alleged top operative in the US’s Home Security department – protecting the homeland from terrorists – not! Al Qaeda have nothing to fear from this dysfunctional manic emotional mess. James Bond is more effective than this lot.
I began watching because President Obama said it was his favourite show. Surely this was in jest. Why he would highlight a program which so accurately portrays US intelligence services as pathetic is curious. That they had no idea that terrorists were learning to fly planes in the US before 11 Sept 2001, that they were confused about what a weapon of mass destruction looked like in an aerial photographs of Iraq, and that they took 10 years searching for Osama Bin Laden in Afghani caves when he was listed in a Pakistani phone book is bad enough. But to portray these functions being carried out by the likes of looney Carrie is too close to the bone.
Claire Daines should arrest herself for crimes against thespianism.
The photo says it all. Dana Brody, an apparent recent graduate from the Russell Crowe School of Acting, has only one expression which she has successfully managed to maintain throughout seasons 1 & 2.
