If you got lot of time to waste - watch this BS Show
This is how it goes, and the author did the following, pick a real life political situation and twist it around while drunk or under drugs. Add some facts with lots of impossible imaginary incidents, then wake up from the hangover to see all is wrong and does not add up.
It is all about over sized terrorists, CIA screw ups and characters that are lost and jumping places.
You cannot fool educated viewers with all this crap, like shooting a scene in Morocco with men dressed as Jordanians and women dressed like Egyptians and say it is Beirut.
The author, producer, and director should have done more research to convince us, it is another "24" but here Jack Bauer is a Psycho - Cuckoo blonde named Carie
Do not waste your time on this, slow boring and does not add up!moreless
A dumb New Zealander has a question about the Dana Brody character
May I have some help, please, American viewers of Homeland? This series is VERY big here at the bottom of the world, where no drones will ever fly, but everyone I know who watches it is completely mystified by the character Dana Brody, played by Morgan Saylor. Up to now Dana has obviously been a character we're supposed to like (she persuaded Brody not to blow up the VP and others; she's young; she's pretty etc etc). But now she has: (a) walked out of her home, leaving her mother (whose life must be hell) and brother to pine away and die for all she cares, and (b) she's told her father to leave her alone, when all he wanted to do was say goodbye before he was about to embark on a suicide mission (not that she knew that, admittedly). In any other TV series, and certainly in any series made outside the US, the view which we are being invited to take of this character would be clarified about now: a house would fall on her, and another character would come along and take possession of her shoes. My question, therefore, is this: do Americans have a completely different view of this character from everyone else on the planet? Are young women in America are expected to behave in a completely self-absorbed manner, caring nothing about the feelings and welfare of others, including their parents and siblings? I'd really like to know.
Wheel Barrow got a flat tire...
I'm so disappointed in this season. I thought the show's main characters were supposed to be Carrie and BRODY!! They dragged the whole season with unnecessary drama. By this point, I feel like 'who cares who the real bomber is?' They will probably lie about it anyway. Since the end of season 2, when Carrie walked back in and saw Saul, to me, Saul looked guilty. And the way he acts & talks this year, I don't trust him. I think he's part of the bombing. That's just my opinion.moreless
How the biggest TV Series in the World was destroyed in 3 episodes of the New Season!!!!
I am stunned at the Writers/Directors of the new season of was the biggest TV Series all over the World(or second to Game of Thrones. If they deliberately wanted to damage the series they could not have done worse.
Frankly, is the title of the series 'Homeland' about the Homeland Security or is it 'The Psych Ward'. Three episodes have dealt with nothing but the hero and heroine's battles with drugs and psychiatric illness! Save for a bit about Saul, the writers seem to have been lost in their own world of psychiatric illness and drug filled writing and just lost the plot.
If bringing out the heroine's well used story line of psychiatric illness wasn't pathetic enough and showed absence of fresh ideas,they even got Dana in the psych ward with her problems.
All I can say is I'm glad Sleepy Hollow,Black List,etc have started because this season of Homeland is just plain garbage!moreless
Back in play
I love this show, but I must admit that it was off to a slow start.
We are in an instant consumption society, we want it all now,I for one believe we should make time to let the story develop, especially if the show as provided us with some great entertainment in the past,It must account for something.
Kudos, Homeland has done it, I am hooked, once again..
season 3 is really bad
I did love this show but season 3 story line has taken a huge turn. I just watched the 3rd episode and could hardly sit thru it. The 2 main characters are both in lock up with little hope of escape and the star is crazy and in an asylum.
So what happened... are there new writers? what happened to the action and the complexity, this is 2 people trying to escape their current situation and that's about it. Great actors but the writing... will be canceled by season 4 at this rate.moreless
Season 3 - Homeland Returns
Claire and Damian are the best thing to happen to this TV Series... Though I didnt like Claire in the first season for her annoying behavior, its quite brilliant for the way she has carried forward her role so brilliantly... Another deeply respected character in this series is Mandy as Saul...
With Season 3 all set to start, it would be better if they concentrate and tie some loose ends in the first few episodes instead of dragging it too long... In all a great series... Cant wait for it to start!moreless
