This is an interesting series, but sometimes I feel like I'm watching the same thing over and over. The main character, Carrie, has the same issues and problems every season.

Carrie's bipolar manic behavior is getting worse. But it is being manic that helps her sees connections everywhere, a valuable asset as a CIA operative. This time, she suspects a covert war in play to disrupt the White House and bring down the newly elected Madam President Keane who had barely escaped an assassination attempt in S6. Not too crazy with the set up for S8 but overall as good as the previous seasons.

Note: Some parallel with the Robin Wright's role in the final season of House of Cards and "Red Sparrow" as "honey trap" and the "exchange" site at “The Narva River Bridge” that “On the right, Russia. On the left, the West, if that’s what you want to call Estonia.”

Seems that thinking of the seventh being the last season, producers had decided on a low budget single theme season. It's rather boring and the concocted action/excitement parts are more comical, stretching the imagination of anyone over age of 12 (hint: think of IQ tables for adults).

Russian spies, like invisible superheros, pass through heavily guarded areas, kill an FBI agent under lock and key, and disappear without a trace. (no wonder there was a conspiracy theory about Russian agents slipping into a federal prison and killing the pedophile Epstein).

Likewise, American spies get into the RGU (Russian CIA) HQ without a single shot and remove a Russian spy, ride through streets of Moscow, and fly her a thousand miles through the Russian territory. All this while the police are chasing their tales and the supersonic jet fighters from the second most powerful air force being unable/afraid to intercept a private jet. This is "Hogan's heroes" presented not as a comedy but a serious drama.

Now that the eighth has been determined to be the finale, Showtime has been spending a couple of years to release the next season in 2020. Let's hope their cartoonish characters will have a bit more respect to the average viewer's intelligence.

Fake news:

Why are they all overseas?
-Those are Tor servers-- Romania, Germany. It gives us a place to start, but it takes a while. They work pretty hard to stay anonymized. We pray for the lazy ones-- some genius who logs in from Starbucks.
===
Planting a story, doctoring up fake accounts, posting hundreds of tweets.
===
Usual suspects.
-So we're gonna blame the Russians for this, too.
I'm talking about information warfare
===
What's "UI"? It says it next to my name.
-Those are categories used by the GRU.
"T" for target, "RA" for recruited asset, "UI" for What?
-Useful Idiot.
===
I am the tip of the spear of one of the most insidious attacks ever perpetrated on the institution of American democracy. And everything I've said in public in the last three months has been an elaborate fiction authored by the military intelligence wing of the Russian government.

What's that?
-Well, that's a node, an identity.
What's it do?
- Well, that's the tweet with the frame grab and the caption. I mean, that's-- that's the meme.. All right, so these are the nodes that respond. They're actually mostly automated accounts. They light up red when they retweet messages, which they do sporadically over time so that it looks natural.

What about the green ones?
-Yeah, no, those are real people, those are verified accounts. So, like, like a real person might send a meme to a friend or two or ten or maybe everyone they know. In epidemiology, that's called a replication rate. And every meme has one.

So that's the real people passing it on.
