    did you know this is one of two dramas obama watches?  the other being boardwalk empire

    i love claire danes but find the series very tedious and overwrought.

    i will probably continue watching although i am not paying for it.  i will wait until is is free via my amazon prime subscription.

    there IS something very strange about it all the way around, but i can't put my finger on it.

    dane's paranoia about a man who she actually seems attracted to is quite strange.  i don't read her sleeping with him as solely motivated in a mata hari way.  i think she is compelled to unravel his mystery.  the voyerism in the series is really disturbing and as we see her watch him via hidden camera go through some severe pstd, including around sex, she becomes perversely attracted to him.

    it is creepy in the extreme.

      male character doing that, the audience revulsion would have been rather high.

      You have exactly 10 seconds to change that look of disgusting pity into one of enormous respect!
