    Homeland is one of the most anticipated cable dramas of the season and I think I can describe whether you like it or not in one sentence: if you are a fan of The Killing on AMC you will enjoy this. The dialogue, the method of storytelling, it is all very similar to that acclaimed drama.


    The show has a solid cast, but I think the show spent a little too much time explaining the backstory and then they rushed through things including admitting that the soldier turned on his country in the first episode. That struck me as a bit peculiar.


    Rushed and slow at the same time, there are some flaws with the show, but I also think Showtime might have another winner on its hands in the long run.
