Virgil and Carrie's illegal surveillance of the Brody home is covered for a month by a dodgy court order Saul Berenson gets from 'vulnerable' judge Jeffrey Turner. Unfortunately Carrie's surveillance crew failed to install cameras in the garage, where Nicholas piously performs Muslim prayers. Inside, he's rather aloof with his family and suffers torture nightmares during which he hurtfully grabs his wife. Young son Chris bravely handles witnessing the sergeant decking a provocative reporter with a single throat punch. The theory his hand twitches are a code is virtually dismissed in Langley. Although Carrie obsessively claims there must be a link, she's ordered to concentrate solely on protecting her undercover, a pleasure girl recruited for Saudi prince Farid Bin Abbud, who spotted Al Qaida leader aboard his yacht. USMC captain Mike Faber, also his wife's lover, was ordered to make Brody play along in the presidential propaganda, is told off but suddenly Brody accepts seeing the ... Written by KGF Vissers

Nicholas Brody: You know what I really need, Mike? I need the last eight years back. Where I get to take care of my wife and kids. Where I don't get asked to go over there and fight their fucking war. I'm not taken prisoner. Not left out there to rot. Never tortured. None of it. Can you do that for me? Or is it too much to ask?

Little details matter
18 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

As mentioned before by one of the users, this is a quite good series. The actors are performing adequately the intricate characters who each have their own problems (whether psychological, marital, etcetera...). However, it seems that there's still a huge lack of information about the Islamic prayer. It's very simple to research it and/or even ask Muslims to demonstrate how the prayer goes. Because when I know how it is and then I see it this way, it damages the realism of the series. Instead of being intrigued by the guy's prayer, I exclaim and start sarcastically mocking how it's depicted. Such details matter, this series is great, and to be even greater, one has to take care of all the details pertaining to his character and to his plot.

My vote would be a 7.5
