I think this was a great season. i thought it was a VERY odd ending to the finale though.

Watched the final two episodes last night. Put me in the "good but not great" camp though it did have some moments of greatness. I'll watch when it comes back though and will be interested in what they do with Carrie since her CIA career is obviously over.
Going through a season On Demand in a week & and a half? Awesome.

I really liked this show. I watched the whole thing in about 4 days.

Just finished watching. Loved the show but there have been enough 24-esque WTF moments (close calls, deux ex, etc.) this season that, combined with how the season ended (oh, how convenient that she remembers Aisa just before receiving a treatment that will affect her memory!), give me pause in thinking the show will continue to be great going forward.

The second half of the season was much better than the first half. Worth it if you can stick through it.

This is really good so far. The producers of 24 havent forgotten how to end every episode with a nice blue ball job.

Wow. Great episode. The momentum this show is able to maintain is amazing.

does anyone else think Saul is working for the terrorists? I've been almost sure of it since mid-way through season 1.

I thought there was one episode where they insinuated he was a Muslim, but that was as far as any relationship to Nasir as I have picked up on, and doesn't make sense in the context of the assassination scene in the last episode, but that does not mean there is only one 'villain' in the show. It would be an interesting cliff hanger for the end of the season if he was corrupt.

there were a few things that brought me to that. first, he failed that lie detector test in season one, which was explained away by "Saul always fails them," well that's a great cover. Also, I thought he was the one who slipped the razor blade to that terrorist they had in the safe house. Basically I kind of thought Saul did most of the stuff Carrie blamed on Brodie.

Ah, yeah, I remember that now and my wife thought the same thing as you did at the time. Good call.

I dont know if it's allowed or not, but if it wasnt, a congressman being groomed for VP would probably have a better chance of getting away with it than most.
