Doesn't seem like there's a hell of a lot there to see. But I am kinda surprised she hasn't shown them. In any case, gratuitous titties are definitely the only thing this show is missing. That ISI broad definitely needs to show us what she's got under there.


I'm not expecting Alexandra Daddarrio (Google Image Page; NSFW-ish) from True Detective titties here. Just something to whet the appetite. I feel like if I sat through Season 3, I deserve to see bush or tits.

Doesn't count. Has to be in the show. Preferably, reverse cowgirl. Is that too much to ask?

Liked the new episode, and am on record as saying I'm not too worried about the lack of realism But with the release of the CIA torture report, which details extensive collaboration between the ISI and the CIA, I just wanted to do a quick TAEK on why the Pakistani authorities would never poke the Americans in the eye as aggressively as they have on the show.

Basically, Pakistan is only a viable country if they are at peace with India or if their defense budget is subsidized by the west. Even with nuclear deterrence against India, their economy can't support a competitive military without regular bailouts from the US (not to mention from their fellow Moozlim Saudis and fellow India-hating Chinese). They need to rail against the US publicly to maintain any kind of legitimacy, and they feel the need to support extremist groups in Afghanistan to counter India, but they also can't completely alienate the US. This is especially true in the case of Afghani extremists who are now coming back to Pakistan and challenging the authority of the state. So in those situations, it is best for the Pakistani authorities to let the US fuck up all the Islamist militants, claim their national sovereignty was violated, but secretly be happy about it. No higher level ISI officer is going to let some rogue lower-level operative, let alone a fucking woman, cock up this delicate balance.

But like I said, fuck all that realism for the purposes of this show. It's about time Quinn dropped the "woe is me" Fallout Boy routine and did what he does best.

This has been a fantastic season. I legit hate Pakistan now. :)

I'd be down with them eventually tailoring the show around Quinn.

So, I'm confused. Dar Adal is in the car with the bad guy. If I'm undertsanding correctly, he's Peter Quinn's handler and an all around bad guy. Does that mean the Americans are in bed with the Taliban? Is he going to kill Haqqani? I FEEL LIKE THE WOLF RIGHT NOW AND I DON'T LIKE IT!!

Did you not watch next week's preview???? They basically explain what he's doing.

That ep was annoying. You knew what was gonna happen the whole time. Quinn is a fantastic character though.

Very underwhelming. I was convinced Quinn's truck was going to explode or something. Nope.

That was more disappointing than when I found out F Murray Abraham was Syrian instead of Lebanese.

That would have been a solid first episode of next season...but I guess they needed to do their James Rebhorn tribute before his ghost started to haunt the studio.

I binged my way through this last week whilst my wipe was in PK.

- This show is still shitty, but about 2x better than 24.

- I tuned out for season 3, but can't they just have a season where no one tries to KILL THE PRESIDENT, BLOW UP THE CIA, or MASSACRE AN EMBASSY. Jesus, you can make an interesting show without destroying everything you touch.

- What THENY said about Tasim. She is hot as fuck. Damn.

- The ending was fine with me, this show is not good and I am glad they finally dialed it back in a bit.

Anyone still sticking with this? Not sure about the Snowden angle. Big fan of Quinn.

I'll watch after the season is over IF people say it was a good season.
