I think it says something when I am watching Homeland before all of the other great dramas on Sundays on my DVR schedule. Sure, Claire Danes needs to improve her acting a little bit, but right now this show is still really fun, it's fresh, and while some of the scenes come off as a little dumb, the writing is pretty engaging.
They've also been able to let me see Morena Baccarin without thinking of her as Anna from V, certainly not an easy task. She's been great in the role and while Damian Lewis was still a little stiff at times, this is a career best role for him to.
This show is a lot of fun, and yet it still has that high concept feel to it. It really makes me miss The Unit though.
