I really enjoyed the finale. I think it was quite brave rather than a cop out. In a way i was willing for brody to flick the switch , so that everyone, the good guys would be vindicated. Brody in a way himself. (fuck, going to have the FBI knocking on my door soon ha!)|
Its quite an interesting anti hero scenario. But ultimately the good guys never really win. And you do wonder how sol had the stomach to do this for his career.
What i liked as well, was there was actual more CIA stuff this week. Sort of what spy stories are made up off. Seeing Sol dig dirt, and have his mojo back was pretty good to watch. Still think his up to something.
The show was neatly put together, i think they knew excatly where they going with the show. Where the show dragged its feet a bit in the middle of the season, it was setting up nicely for the last few episodes. And the set up was well done, and the ending made sense - He loves his daughter as much as Iser. . One thing i wanted to happen, is cary to know that his daughter rang him , even if it was second hand. For her to have that peace would have been nice, but i guess the world doesn't work like that. But i guess that would confirm to her that brody was a terrorist.
I think watching, i guess like most series (Except lost, lost was expert on leaving you hanging on for the next week), would be better in a couple of sittings.
Anyway overall enjoyed the series a lot, seeing messed up people, well normal people really, in a world governed my strict straight lines, rules and regulations is quite compulsive viewing.
