Been watching that as well Charles. Mostly because of my crush on Morena Baccarin since Firefly and don't foget TV's failed attempt to revive "V". She was one shapely lizard.
There is a reason, revealed a bit later since it sounds like you are early into it, why Carrie acts the way she does. Still I agree. Sometimes she reminds me of an angry duck. I keep watching because I'd like to see how they play it all out but the feasibility of the plot has been suffering in current episodes, I feel.
With great power comes Awesome irresponsibility.
