I found season 5 to be quite a drop off from seasons 1-4. For starters it starts off 2 years into the future where Carrie has left the CIA to work for a foundation that helps people in war zones? Not totally clear on why the writers came up with this plot line.....she now has a kid (Brody's) and a new boyfriend who also works at the foundation and he his clueless about her bipolar disorder......which Carrie explains to him.......oh yeah, right after she goes off her meds. Carrie, you have to stay on those meds! But the sex is good! ;-) Well, you can take the girl out of the CIA, but you can't take the CIA out of the girl, which leads Carrie into many danger situations again. Alice ann, (a new CIA character) steals the show with her double agent, double dealing, back stabbing, conniving, sleeping with Saul, having people killed for her Russian handler. But she gets hers in the end. Like I said, not as good as the first 4 seasons but it did hold my interest. I suppose in season six they'll jump ahead 25 years and Carrie will be mentoring her daughter in the rich fulfilling life of being a CIA agent. Come on writers, come up with a little more realistic plot for season 6 will you?
