Well, I'm not a tv writer, so I don't really know. Selina isn't an unpopular politician. Katherine isn't particularly competent either, so I could see the documentary making her look sympathetic or something.

I have never laughed as hard during an episode as I did tonight when Ben was laughing at Jonah getting shot in the foot.  His genuine glee made me so happy.

I swear that was just Kevin Dunn losing it. He was the best!

I just realized my problem with Katherine is that she is whatever the storyline needs her to be for that moment. If she needs to be emo to get a laugh, she is for that episode. If she needs to an activist to thwart Selina, she is for that episode and so on. I wish that I could say that they were making the character all over the place on purpose, but I don't think they are. I don't really think Katherine has a personality, and I don't mean that she is drab. I literally mean that they have not given the character three dimensions. It stands out when all of the other characters are three-dimensional.

Way too much Katherine. And I think she is drab and has no personality. Either Sarah Sutherland is a REALLY good actress to pull this off, or she missed out on the charisma gene that her father and grandfather have in spades. Plus, you have an entire cast of loud, sarcastic, hilarious f-bomb droppers. Katherine in comparison, is dull as dish water.

She's very drab, but of course that's the point. The hard part is making sure a character who's boring does not bore the audience.

And then I heard "Exercise book" or "exercise bike" neither of which make sense to me, but I'm not a great "hear-er".  Anyone?

I rewatched with the closed-captioning on. She said, "An exercise book."

So I am wondering if the Chinese person used a non-specific word to describe someone who is on a boat in the ocean, meaning, sailor, and Minna translated that as "pirate." And maybe exercise book means composition book with the horizontal lines to write on?

I just started watching the show on demand a couple of months ago which is why I'm late to the party.

It totally means a composition book.  I think that perhaps the term exercise book is regional, but I cracked up the moment she said it because it was so true along with the prisoner and pirate comparisons.
