First 5 seasons are simply excellent
As the title suggests, the first 5 seasons are excellent. It does kind of tail off a bit in season 5 but still very worthy. The theme of season 6 is woeful compared to the settings and events of the others. This show contains thee best single episode of any TV series I’ve ever watched in season 2, the most intense and satisfying climax’s to any story.
Carrie was a character I really adored for a long time watching through a lot of the series for many reasons but I’ll keep this some what review short and sweet. However, from season 6 onwards I started to honestly hate her hahaha, I believe it was down to bad writing or at least what the character was doing just always seemed like the wrong decisions to make. In the end, the last episode of season 8 kind of brought back the lost love I had for her and kind of redeemed her for me with her final actions. A very mixed bag from season 6 onwards, but this show is seriously worth watching for the first 5 and more or less fulfilling if you manage to finish it.
Saul is the man. No more needed to say, he really made the show.
From 8 to 5 (forcing story to stay centered soley on Carrie has been its downfall)
The first 3 to 4 seasons are great(8+). After 4 episodes in on season 1 the characters sink into their roles and viewers get a feel for characters/story and become vested. Somewhere beyond season 4th season the show kinda declines into sporadic strategic misfiring that is just indicative to a lack of insight as to what the hardcore fans enjoyed about the series.
The show was built to be anchored around 2 characters (Carrie & Saul)… That’s what made it soar in the beginning, but its also the show’s biggest anchor and impediment.
Additional characters organically develop in this series like Brody & Quinn, and others that become powerful enough characters that draw viewers just as deep if not deeper than the planned formula of Saul/Carrie. This not only spices the show up but it relieves viewer fatigue of watching Carrier repeatedly go through her issues over and over in order to achieve interested dramatic effect.
These two major characters became critical and grew to carry this series to very new heights. Then the writers/produces irresponsibly ignore what these two characters brought to the show and it just seems writing/direction is forcefully introduced to steer the focus back to Carrie/Saul. And its very intrusive to the cohesiveness of the story and definitely leaves the audience feeling the show is become more artificial.
The other issue is that by removing both these characters the show is now VOID of any really “Good guys” leading characters… As time goes viewers learn both Brady & Quinn are the shows only seriously “good guys” on the show… They care and have a code of ethics way higher than Carrie or Saul. They are not perfect but have overwhelmingly redeeming qualities that make up for the bad. However, events really bring you to despise both Carrie and Saul for who they are. Viewers learn there is no loyalty and they both are ready to risk/do via force or manipulation to other good people under an illusion the risk is worth the reward…
They still personally believe they are good and do good overall but at their core nothing is sacred to accomplish what they need at all costs… and in the end both characters become sellouts to their own needs or masking it under many times very thin veil of country needs when it really was only for their personal interests.
I think the writers had a good formula here but they are now seemingly forced to keep the story rooted in Carrie and Saul and that has left the show void of a real hero people can identify with as they could with Brody / Quinn…
And the ridiculous writing on the demise of Quinn from the poisoning forward is amateurish at best and just shows the show is misfiring and not quite aware of what they fan base enjoyed about the program. Acting is super solid across the board… the only issue is maintaining the stories organic continuity and balance set aside some obvious cheese with Quinns repeated demises, and how they amateurly let a double agent station chief in Berlin run amuck in active operations even after they know she’s a snowden level traiter and weakly convinces Dar Adal of otherwise… Hit a real cheese point there.
