    Does anybody watch this show? My buddy got me hooked on this show and I breezed through the first 3 seasons and I am current to the most recent episode of season 4. Great acting all around, The writing is superb.

    Me too and agree completely. Supposedly real CIA analysts say the show is dead on. Originally it is a hit series in Israel adopted for the US

    Great series. My gf turned me on to it abt 2 episodes into this season, and I spent a week catching up with the first seasons on Hulu. Excellent writing and cast, especially Claire Danes. Her Best Actress wins are well deserved.

    With Homeland, Boardwalk Empire, and The Walking Dead all coming on at 8 pm on Sunday, thank god for DVR.

    I was satisfied with the ending.
    Was well-written and performed.
    Perhaps one season too long, I don'k know.
    But the storyline that needed to end, did end.
    And no Dana. Yay.

    Very good show albeit I thought the writing towards the end of the season was pretty weak.

    SPOILER ALERT*******

    When Claire and Brody were at the safehouse she alerted him she was 4 months pregnant from their time at the lake. 4 months???? The Langley bombing an subsequent Caracas trip and drug addiction happened in 4 months?

    Additionally, the CIA would never put a pregnant woman into Iran.

    They'd have been better off dropping the hold pregnancy angle.

    The pregnancy thing seemed soap opera-ish.

    But, as to this last episode, I loved the opening scene as he exited that office and building. I thought it well-filmed.
