  1. First off, I need more! Tim starts off playing the swarmy
    Politician and you have to not like the guy at all. BUT then you have the more candid moments with Alvarez that you think he does at least acknowledge there’s an issue even if he’s unwilling to help. Then you have to factor in the hospital scene (my favorite scene) where he comes across as being a little shaken up when reflecting on the overall Afghanistan mission. All adds up to my belief his character is more complex than initially viewed. So I NEED MORE…please.

  2. Finally getting to post this after a post-work crash and an extended internet outage.

    I enjoyed Tim’s appearance as Secretary of the Army Ryan Goodall. As someone who spent (admittedly very limited) time serving in the Army, I can confirm that there’s a big disconnect between those who actually serve and those who oversee them without having done their own stint in the military. So Goodall’s somewhat oblivious yes-man behavior earlier in the episode was pretty spot-on.

    The semi-epiphany he had when talking to Durkin about what they were really doing there was nice to see. Finally, someone starting to understand the real horrors of war instead of just walking/spouting the company line.

    His last scene showed that, while he’s definitely made progress, he’s still got a long way to go. I’ll be curious to see if he takes his experiences, conversations, and realizations home with him and starts trying to change things.

    On a more opinionated note, as someone who’s been watching the show since the beginning, I was okay with Goodall’s support of Alvarez and his annoyance with Roback. I’m not much of a Roback fan – he often seems to end up getting Alvarez and Davis into trouble – and it was nice to see someone call him on it (not only Goodall, but Davis as well).

  3. It was great seeing Tim again ! Though it wasn’t his most glorious role 😉 From the moment they landed in the middle of nowhere, it was pretty obvious something wrong was gonna happen. He should just have buckled up and use a bag…

    I also enjoyed the conversation Goodall had with Durkin. It’d be interesting if he takes it into account, if we ever see him again. Though as a single politician, I’m not sure how much he can do.
