People tell me the second season is better.
The first season didn't have a great end to it. Carrie getting electro shock doesn't really interest me and was just a dumb way to end it. It would be fine if it ended some other episode but not the season. The progression of Brody's character and the role he's playing in everything is my main interest.
In the US it's very rare for a season to have only six episodes unless it's a new show on a major network that gets a small episode order to start out. Most cable drama's like Homeland get a minium of 12 episodes a season now.
