The guy running the show kept pausing and rewinding scenes just to annoy people.

I can handle the chat bar on the side, but that was really annoying.

Was that just a rare occurrence? If so, I'll be willing to give them another try.

(I know, it's free streaming and beggars can't be choosers, but still.)

It depends on who is running the feed.

The who hosted dexter would put blinking Christmas lights on the top of the screen.

He also would play music in the background. He played the jaws theme a couple of times and muskrat love during the deb/dex scene. It was awesome. Then people ratted him out to the site and they closed it down.

I switched it to another guy for homeland and it was normal.

Good to know. I'll happily take the link, if you're still offering.

The link I have now needs a password. As soon as I get it, I'll send both over.

Well, Homeland began awesome and ended even more awesomer. I'm pretty speechless at how the concept never managed to drag over the course of the season. And the acting from the three leads? Damnnnnn.

Honestly, I think it should take home Best Actor, Actress, and Supporting Actor at the Emmys and I think we could finally see a show unseat Mad Men.

I just got free Showtime for three months with my new cable service when I moved a couple of weeks ago, so I was finally able to see this. I was so addicted from the get-go that I watched the whole damn season On Demand over the weekend. Extremely satisfying. Sorry I couldn't have watched and talked about it with you guys during the fall.

Yeah, this started out a tad generic, but by the end it was one of the most nerve-wracking pieces of entertainment I've ever seen. Claire Danes was absolutely gut-wrenching.

I really liked the last couple of episodes

and I am glad we are finally at the place where Broady may finally be outed.

Really like the start to this season as well.

Agree with your comment - this show is a cat-and-mouse game and at the end of Season 1, Brody had all the power and Carrie/Saul/CIA had none and no good leads either. So I'm glad that we're where we are.

Though I think that this may be a set up for Brody to sense that he's about to get caught and then coming out to the CIA claiming that he did all of this in order to become a double agent and that his plan all along was to work for the CIA but to do so he had to buy Nazir's trust, etc.

It's so good. Each episode this season has been riveting.

Still really enjoying it but I'm kind of with deep - wishing that this show would have been really well planned like The Wire and done in 2 seasons, maybe 3 max. Too much potential for it to go off the rails.

Claire Danes is great. Wonder where they're taking this now that they took in Brody.
