If you listen to The Watch podcast and like Barry this should be good:
So far I'm loving this season. The addition of Farouk is really helping, I think the actor (Navid Negahban) is fantastic - he has such a delightfully menacing charm - and it's a much more compelling bad guy that floating fat dude. Him, Jemaine Clement, and Aubrey Plaza are a pretty amazing super-villain squad.
The mind-wrestling scene with David was yet another great visually-interesting scene. And when David time-traveled to see future-Syd it was totally reminiscent of a Twin Peaks Black Lodge scene with the way time was skipping around.
That was really good. So glad to have this show back.
They give Oleg a wife, baby, and a sweet beard ... And send him back to America for "one last mission." I'm officially very worried for him.
Elizabeth ice cold as ever ... Young men, don't mess with Page unless you want to end up with a knife in the neck.
And now we have Elizabeth's suicide pill looming over the season. She looks worn down taking on all the spy work without Philip ... Who in turn looks very refreshed being out of the game; he's even line dancing! When he gets the signal from Oleg he looks so bummed out.
As always amazing use of music, and a ton of it ... Peter Gabriel, Talking Heads, Fleetwood Mac all in the same episode, good stuff. Especially the Peter Gabriel song swelling over the meeting in Mexico ... "We Do as We're Told."
