Sexy Crazy CIA Carrie
Episode 11, Carrie is distraught
Yes, that's right, the new telly sexy star of the moment in Blighty is Claire Danes, playing the bipolar CIA intelligence expert who loves Jazz, lives alone, and doesn't want there to be another terror attack on US soil on her watch. She replaces Ms. Lund, the dour Scandinavian police detective of the infamous jumper. Poor Carrie, in episode 11 of season 1 of Homeland, has gone all mental without her pills after a bomb-trauma. This is good for mental health sympathy. This is good TV. But is it propaganda? Who cares. Bring it on. Eyewear like Obama loves the show.
