In the wake of Israeli air strikes against Iran, the Middle East threatens to erupt in fresh violence. In Beirut, flags bearing the Star of David, and the Red, White, and Blue, burn in the streets. A woman swims through the chaos towards the American embassy, trying to make contact. The abused wife of a Hezbollah commander, she carries information about an attack - retaliation against Israel's ally, the United States. But this would-be informant insists she will only speak to her one-time CIA handler: Carrie Mathison. The problem: Carrie Mathison is no longer with the Agency. The disgraced ex-officer is on the slow path to recovery, after her manic flight in Season One nearly crashed the political career of American hero Nicholas Brody. Months after her expulsion from the CIA, the adventure and turmoil that once defined Carrie's life is now a dull memory, replaced by regular ECT treatment and her father and sister's protective cocoon. It's this fragile new existence that Carrie's former colleagues Saul Berenson and David Estes threaten to shatter, when they come to her door asking for help. Meanwhile Nicholas Brody, several months into his inaugural term as a freshman Congressman, finds himself buffeted daily by competing agendas. Everyone has a plan for him - whether it's Vice President William Walden, fellow Marine Mike Faber, or terrorist mastermind Abu Nazir. While Brody strives to change the face of American foreign policy without bloodshed, he learns that doing so may not be good enough for Nazir. And with every lie he tells, the walls around him close in a little tighter, threatening to bring Brody down, along with his family and everything they've achieved since his return. As the situation at home and abroad escalates, Carrie and Brody's worlds will collide yet again, deepening a relationship built on lies, suspicion and longing. Will Carrie finally be vindicated for the truth she was so close to uncovering? Can Brody keep his head above water?

Of course you've got to like the show ---- this is about extremists undermining our society, the questionable tactics used by the CIA, the flawed characters of both our brittle heroine played by Claire Danes and our suspect terrorist, Damian Lewis in another solid role in an American tv series.
There is also Mandy Patinkin's role, at times dour and conservative and then all-seeing and clever in the fight to stay ahead of potentially devastating attacks by enemies of the west.
The acting from the above continues to be of the highest standard, but superb support from all the key sub-players that make up each season.
This is a story that is evolving all the time but the standard of innovative writing is so strong that it's a must watch.
I have just started series three, so if it is up to the same standard I shall not complain.
In many cases the complaints are about the technical faults of the discs, so surely this is not really the place for giving such low one star ratings. If you cannot watch the programme how can you review it?
Damian Lewis gets to play an entirely different kind of Tom Brody once the dust settles from early revelations, still keeping the audience guessing as to his true motives, and Claire Danes continues to nail it as fragmented agent Carrie, in what must be an emotionally and physically exhausting role to play but one that finally catches the rest of the world up to what fans of her knew she was capable of as an actress almost twenty years ago.
If you enjoy tense, tight scripts, fabulous acting and excellent diverse plot lines, well produced and directed ... Damian Lewis (Nicholas Brody), gives of his usual best, as do the rest of the myriad other stars in this highly acclaimed award winning series.
Claire Danes, (Carrie Mathison) is brilliant in her portrayal of an 'on the brink of lunacy' CIA agent, with Mandy Patinkin (Saul) as her Stoical colleague.
I urge you to stay in for a day ... or a couple! to watch this seat of the pants four disc set!
Season three has begun ... and guess what? Amazon are taking pre orders:) for it.
A highly recommended DVD, in my opinion up with the best!
Go fot it!
