    I thought it was pretty much all fluff.

    Didn't really progress the plot until the final 5 minutes.

    I really thought Saul was going to walk in when Carrie was out. All in all it was a meh episode. Wonder if Carrie gets back in?

    We must have been watching a different episode cause I thought it was very well done.


    Vic Mackey: You better figure out how much you hate me. And how you're going to deal with that. 'Cause I'm not going anywhere.

    This sums up every sports interview, ever.

    Obviously Brody was not in a state of mind where he was thinking clearly, but he probably knew that this dude being alive was not going to be a good thing for him.

    These bastards definitely know how to build tension.

    I think I get goosebumps from this show more than any other.

    People here in Lebanon got offended at how Beirut was depicted, my emotional side agrees. But I know it is purely out of budget reasons. LEBANON Is not ANYTHING CLOSE TO WHAT THEY showed as. HAMRA street is one of the busiest streets in Lebanon with some of the biggest brands in the world....

    Because I am smarter then my emotions, this show is excellent. To me it has all the drama of 24 (But acted much better) and the thinking part of lost. I really do like it.

    why do they have a sleeper cell congressman in the running for VP going around doing henchman work? doesn't abu nazeer have some other low-level lackey to transport another cell?

    interested to see where they go now that carrie (and saul, obviously) know brody's little secret... they certainly didn't hold out on revealing that info like some other shows (dexter...)

    I've thought Saul was bad for a while now. I wonder if the real bad person is Estes tho. This show is great, this season has been really fun to wach.

    The Lebanese government is suing the the show and network for lies.

    http://www.executive-magazine.com/in...ntroversy/5269

    For those unacquainted with Beirut, the real Hamra Street is a bustling cosmopolitan artery where days spent shopping and chatting in cafes give way to a nightlife of drinking and cavorting in local bars. A hub of modern city life, it is Beirut’s much smaller version of London’s Tottenham Court Road or New York’s Fifth Avenue.

    Unsurprisingly, the misrepresentation has sparked more than a little ire in the Lebanese government. Speaking exclusively to EXECUTIVE, Lebanese Tourism Minister Fady Abboud has promised to take legal action over the “lies” in the show.

    “This kind of film damages the image of Lebanon — it is not fair to us and it’s not true, it is not portraying reality,” he said. “We want to take action, we want to write to the filmmakers and producers and demand an apology. And we are planning to raise a lawsuit against the director and the producer.”

    Abboud stressed that he was studying potential legal routes the government could take, but added that he would be willing to take action personally if necessary.

    Here is a real picture of Hamra street with Starbucks, just one of the thousands of American brands in Beirut

    This is a TV show yes. But for years and years Lebanon has been portrayed the wrong way by the WEST!

    What pissed me off more then anything is like I said. The fact that they filmed it in Haifa and not Beirut. They made the flight to come out to Israel and film it. So why not Lebanon, it probably would have been cheaper.... I think there is a clear intention there.

    The rest I could careless about, but I understand why people get mad. it's our country.. we want to impress

    films and shows for GENERATIONS have intentionally or poorly misrepresented real cities, states and nations, while filming the scenes depicting those cities, states and nations elsewhere... no one has sued over it to my knowledge.

    Let me get this straight! It is okay for the US government to impose sanctions on countries but it is not okay for countries to sue a company in the US?

    Dude you are tripping.

    I am not a lawyer but I am willing to put at least 5K betting that there is a precedent to such a case!
