BrainDead: Six Points on the New Congressional Budget
September 5, 2016 5:55 PM - Season 1, Episode 11 - Subscribe

Gareth knows the truth, but doesn't want to believe it. Red and Ella have a bipartisan budget with something hidden in the Farm Bill, but that's a separate thing from the budget. Luke is being pre-vetted for Director of the CIA, but it's really Red staying a step ahead of him.

Certainly the most entertaining "Previously on..."

I though that Previously... was a perfect acknowledgement of what a place filler that episode was.

The 'almost getting the queen' scene was fantastic. It was so exceptionally well done. I just love this show. Happy to see Gustav back. Love Gareth wandering around in a haze the entire episode.

Has anyone else noticed the set designer's (or someone else's) obsession with lamps? My husband and I spent part of the episode yelling out how many lamps were in each shot. There was one interior office shot where they managed to squeeze four different lamps into the scene.

This show is certainly starting to find its footing and pacing and I'm really enjoying it now, especially with this episode.

Dammit Gary the intern!
