Back on in the States and on Channel 4 this weekend. I’m sure a lot of people packed it in during the Brody years when it was pretty dull, but seasons 4 and 5 were a real return to form.
Obviously it is still frequently ridiculous - Quinn just happens to be recovering in a terrorist hot bed - but I admire it’s commitment to being as relevant as possible and I still find it genuinely thrilling.
Thought the first episode got off to a good start. Standard place setting. Quinn obviously having a poor time of things, I hope the show still has a resident badass this season. President Elect seems to be halfway between Trump and Clinton which is an interesting approach. Dar Adal getting a lot of screentime. The young Nigerian American will inevitably be radicalised. Did the actor for Otto have some other commitments? To my memory in the last episode of Season 5 he really creepily manoeuvres himself in to position as her BF, but they split up straight away?
