    Default Homeland (TV Series)

    Saw a Dexter thread, and looked for a Homeland thread, but couldn't find one...

    Anyone else check out this show that comes on after Dexter? I have watched it from the start and it is a very interesting, make you think, type of show!

    I really like this show. It makes you guess AND think. And Mandy Patinkin is always fantastic (though I doubt, as always, that he'll make it past a second season).

    Anyway, this is produced by the guy that oversaw most of 24's best seasons. If Homeland ends up being half as satisfying, then it will be a fantastic series.

    I think it is a pretty good show. Lots of twists and turns. I always enjoy a good Washington intrigue/spy craft show.

    Oh and I have been a big fan of Damian Lewis since Band of Brothers.

    I think I would like it better if Claire Danes got naked more often. But, as it stands I am pretty pleased with it and have been watching every week.

    Yeah- I'm glad Mandy Patinkin stuck it out for the long haul, ( unlike Criminal Minds and Dead Like Me ), it's such an amazing show.

    Now even more pertinent than ever considering the recent bombings and so forth.

    I just started Season 5 this week and noticed they titled Episode 5 " Better Call Saul " Lol.

    I've often wondered how realistic the show is though. Imagine if the CIA actually did have agents like Carrie and Quinn.

    Agreed about Patinkin. He and Quinn are the best parts of the show, IMO.

    The show is still good and I'm still watching, but I'm not as into it as I was during the first 2 or 3 seasons.

    Agreed. I think I am even an episode behind this season. Just not appointment viewing like it used to be.

    I couldn't get into this years season. They are taping but have not felt the need to watch it.

    Loved the show prior years.

    However its kind of following a formula. Carrie is a wack job. her and Saul argue. Her and Quinn argue. Carrie figures out a plot. Everybody thinks she is crazy. She ends up right. Repeat

    The problem they had was they had this really good idea for the first season about an American soldier likely turned into a double agent. Not to spoil anyone that stumbles in here, but Showtime, from what I understand, had the producers change the ending of season 1, meaning a certain character stuck around longer than he or she otherwise would have, and it took them a few seasons for this character to die in another scenario.

    This makes me wonder if this intervention lengthened the quality of the show by prolonging the inevitable or caused them to abandon other storylines they had for season 2, which might have extended the quality of the show.

    The show has been really good. I just couldn't get involved with this new season here where Carrie is in Europe.

    Part of me was put off by them caving a bit to pressure of not making the Middle East a breeding ground for Terror. I will watch it and possibly will like it. Just was harder

    However I am wondering how they will approach the ISIS issue occurring now? I guess they could still have the show based in Europe for that

    Tyrant dealt with ISIS, basically, in season 2, so no reason Homeland couldn't.
