Her performance during her manic state alone deserves an Emmy. I don't think she is even nominated.

Claire Danes was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. It will be complete bullshit if she doesn't win.

but that is not even a top 5 reason why i think the show is flawed. like i said, it's a super flawed show that i find super entertaining.

I'd like to see your top five reasons for why it's flawed...

- corny writing (this would be my #1 flaw) since the first episode this has been the first thing i noticed. Corny.

False.

Quote:
- most of the characters are pretty cookie-cutter OR they only show slight deviations of being interesting on certain episodes. for instance, Jessica Brody's character was an intersting character for the first few episodes, (as this wife who has moved on from brody but cant tell him the truth) but over the final 9 episodes, she became unused and pretty borring. I thought the show had different plans for a character like her. Since she admitted to sleeping with his friend, she's been thrown away. I would've liked to see her true emotions come out about brody's friend. (this is just an example)

There's only been one season.

Quote:
- a few small instances of plot holes (and/or simply plot point that havent been developed yet). For example, in episode 5?, Estes tells a guy to follow Carrie as an assignment. This never gets followed up?

I'm Ron Burgundy?

Quote:
- plot seems to all over the place. It's fun having multiple characters and multiple point of views, and when it comes to season 2 i have no fucking idea what's going to happen next (which is why i like the show), BUT I'm just not neccesarily sure what the general focus is of the show. If brody sets the bomb off to kill the vp...is that the show? was that the big plan?

...what?

Quote:
- sub-par acting and a few bad casting decisions.

Beyond false.

Quote:
i'm NOT trying to be an asshole, i DID watch the entire first season and i plan on watching the second season...but that's not to say that i dont recognize the shows flaws. I dont think any of these flaws are completely overbearing either...they're just tiny things i've noticed while watching the show.

For the second time today: this show is not for you.

It's fine for you to keep watching. No one is telling you not to do that. Just don't complain about it anymore, especially when you admit to not knowing what's happening.

It bugs me that you didn't say one thing to counteract his criticisms.

This show is also not for you. (especially if you can't watch Breaking Bad)

How is nothing happening? Is that a serious comment?

I believe the same poster said that Claire Danes wasn't a good actress in this show...

I don't like how his wife refers to him as Brody. Why would you call your husband by their last name, which is also your whole families last name as well.

My girlfriend calls me by my last name most of the time. It doesn't really bother me that much...

I get where you're coming from though.

I can't wait for this to be back. I feel it's so underrated.

I feel the complete opposite. I enjoy it, but I think it's pretty overrated as a series.

The acting is great (Claire Danes especially), but the writing was inconsistent and just flat out bad at times in the second season.

For some reason Justified and Breaking Bad are still underrated.

Speaking of Justified, you should post your thoughts in its thread on the most recent episode since I felt it was one of the best of the series. Also, Stephen King reference.

Still haven't seen the latest episode yet actually. Working strange hours this month.

I have it on my DVR and I will watch it when I get home in the morning.

Fuck man...It is going to blow you away. You're probably avoiding the thread but a lot of us are saying it might be our favorite episode of the series.

Awesome. Wouldn't expect anything different from the show though - the build up has been so good, so I'm expecting a great payoff.

I'll let everybody know what I think at some point tomorrow.
