  • PARANOIA SETS IN

    Homeland: Question Everything, Especially Yourself

    Showtime's domestic-terrorism drama is either playing a masterful mindgame or setting us up for massive disappointment.

    EDIT

    • Carrie gets evidence about Abu Nazir that could connect to Brody.

      8.5
      When Carrie finds out that Abu Nazir has been for the first time in seven years she believes its because of Brody It was a good point what Saul said about Brody playing the hero which he hasn't done because he attacked a reporter and was sat in the same place for a day but at the end comes out of his house as the hero and its exactly what Carrie wanted to see.moreless

      Do you believe everything that's in the newspaper or on tv? Fact is that people tend to believe that every second Muslim is a terrorist, although only a really small number of Muslims ARE terrorists. Don't let the media or prejudices cloud your mind. There are also terrrorist who belong to other religions, for instance the culprit of the attack in Norway in 2011 was Christian. But at the beginning when it was not yet known everybody believed it was a Muslim and all the Newspaper talked about the "Muslim Terrorist". Please be tolerant of other religions.moreless

      Are you a 12 year old? Or have you never read a newspaper? Or watch the news? If that's the case, let me clue you in on a fact. There are more Muslim terrorist around the world than any other religion. GET A CLUE! If you can't believe that, go back to watching American Idol, or whatever garbage you normally watch.

      After watching the second episode of Homeland I'm not sure I can/want to continue watching the show.

      The only likeable main character is potentially a terrorist and that, frankly, sucks. I'm not sure whether it is Claire Danes' character I despise or the CIA itself (probably both), but the fact that now the viewers are supposed to believe that Nicholas Brody is supposed to be a terrorist because he converted to islam and is therefore praying to Allah instead of God is ridiculous.

      There are only two ways the show can end: either he is a terrorist and that means the show's gonna explode with US stereotypes about muslims, the islam and what-now and that just feels so wrong that I wouldn't wanna waste my time watching all these prejudices; or he is not a terrorist which would make Carrie a crazy paranoid person (I don't care about), but also means that she harrassed Brody for no reason, invaded his privacy and all that with the support of the government (doesn't that feel wrong to anybody else?).

      For these reasons I'm going to drop watching the show, but I will read reviews and wait for the final episode to see which way it turns out, I just don't like the way this show seems to be going. I can imagine Americans sitting in front of their television, wanting Brody to be a terrorist and get shot or whatever and that feels wrong in my book. I sincerely hope the writers know what they are doing and don't just increase the fear and hate of the viewers against muslims.

      Dispite all that this episode delivered great acting and set up the show for what could be an interesting season. I just think that 12 episodes are too much for a show like this.moreless
    • One of the most perfect and accurate episodes I've ever watched in a tv series. Actions are happening with in it in the front row and we know what the characters know, nothing more, nothing less, only hiding away from us what we really want to know......moreless

      One of the most perfect and accurate episodes I've ever watched in a tv series. Actions are happening with in it in the front row and we know what the characters know, nothing more, nothing less, only hiding away from us what we really want to know:who is lying? Who is telling the truth?

      Honestly, I don't know… You sort of want to believe them both... Carrie has a point, she has justice on her side, but then again, so is Brody... Right?
