    Not only that but they devote at least 2-3 episodes every season entirely dealing with her bipolar disorder.

    Apart from the show's sharp decline over the years, this is one of the major gripes of the series.

    modern TV shows seem to pretty much always have one or more of the following:

    mental health issues
    alcoholism
    been molested as a kid

    The show started off well and Season 7 was pretty good imo, the middle seasons are weak. They should have milked Damien Lewis's character for 1 more season.

    There's too much focus on her bipolar disorder but Danes does a pretty amazing job at depicting how bipolar people act during manic phases.

    I think they'll end it well.

    Was that the season she went full Avante?

    This series is good to watch while is on but almost entirely forgetable after season 1.

    The subplots with Brody’s daughter were pretty insufferable tbh.

    The Brody storyline went on 1 season too long. Then there was a weak season. But Quinn is an amazing character and the last 2 seasons really stepped it up IMO.

    But yeah if you can't tolerate Claire Danes' horrified open jaw face of emotion then this show isn't for you

    I'm guessing shaky hands, fumbling around and lights up a cigarette. Then she sits there with sleeves pulled slightly over palms, head in hands and cig between fingers, and pushes hair back as she just offers that 1000 yard stare through muffled tears.

    Repeat ad nauseum.

    Having a BP disorder as a station chief for the CIA doesn't jive.

    Btw, have they had the lesbian episode yet? There always has to be a lesbian episode.

    Not a bad idea tbh. Would have preferred it before she started showing her age, but a scene where Danes and some other chick are clam smacking would get viewers

    homeland, easily. that's not a knock on the americans though.

    homeland had bigger payoffs, characters are more memorable. season 1 & season 4 of homeland > every season of the americans.

    LMAO

    Homeland had maybe 2 great seasons then average insued.

    The Americans never had a down season in its entire run. Actually an argument can be made that it got better, not worse.

    This series had the breaking bad season ratings arch.

    Started Homeland and am almost to the end of Season 1. It's pretty good but I'm concerned that this is supposed to be one of its best seasons.
