    Did you guys know that the Abu Nazir guy is actually Iranian?

    It's a good show. I liked 24 much better though. I thought the ending sucked.

    Yes....actually lots of actors are Iranians there. Abu Nazir is one of the most fascinating characters to me.

    The 2nd season has been really bad in my opinion.
    The writers have lost all sense of geopolitics, even for a tv series.

    what do you mean ? I honestly liked first season more as well but for different reasons. I find 2nd season too predictable.

    2nd season is ok....it was going to be difficult to build up on first season anyway. They are building up for a new storyline...I'm still waiting. Not that bad. Last 2 episodes were soso...but the 3 before were great.

    SPOILERS

    First season I liked the little details of the show. They were making clear that Pakistan and Saudi are the two countries responsible for alot of this garbage.
    Now they have Israel bombing Iran and AQ allying with Hizbollah, something that would never happen and hasn't happened. Regardless of the politics, the shows events are now some sort of right wing wet dream. I'm not that surprised considering some of the writers are the same guys who did 24.

    yeah I agree, with you, i dont know if you have watched the latest episode (aired yesterday) but like 5 min in, i was SURE how its going to end and sure did end exactly like that ! i dont know what is wrong , perhaps season 1 set such a high bar that season 2 is just not getting there YET.

    Let me guess, Sergeant Brody will turn to a good boy and help CIA girl Carie get Abu Nazir, right?

    Do they still show Prison Break? Maybe that's more of it..


    SPOILER



    But seriously, they took a dramatic break, they blew Brody's cover off. Just wait until the season finishes. If you guys still predicted everything right, maybe you are in the wrong profession and should just move to Hollywood and become screenwriters. Seriously...

    I watch all those shows and love them all.... (OZ, Boardwalk Empire, Dexter, True Blood, Game of Thrones, Borgias, Spartacus, Sopranos, Homeland, Wire, Californication, Weeds.....................).. and have to say they are all well written and the story lines are good. But some are better than others... Last night i watch Homeland first, then Dexter and then Boardwalk....... Well when it comes to Brody and predictions it was pretty obvious that he had to work with the other side as they blew off his cover. But after last night's episode did he know of that attack on the Tailors shop or it was just to take place??? Once he killed the contact on his way to the safe house as his cover was blown the CIA had the shop under surveillance. And once Brody told them what happened to the Tailor was they went in. Now one has to keep in mind the mole inside the CIA and who that will turn out to be? What do you guys think of the side story they got going with his daughter and the hit and run?

    Mahdi do you watch the shows on TV or online? Where do they should it in Europe?
