Re: Showtime Drama: "Homeland"

That was a fucking awesome episode. It's really got me hyped about the show again.

This weeks episode should have been called "Saul being awesome".

Re: Showtime Drama: "Homeland"

They could make this show entirely about Saul's awesome adventures and I would watch all of them.

This is the Saul/Carrie show. Having Carrie hopelessly limp after Brody all doe-eyed is dumb and a great disservice to what is otherwise a very good character.


Haven't seen this weeks epy yet so cant chime in, but glad to read that the comments are more positive, thats promising.

Re: Showtime Drama: "Homeland"

Is anybody still following this?

Of course Saul was keeping Brody, who is inexplicably still on this show, locked in the Tower of David. It all makes sense now.

Re: Showtime Drama: "Homeland"

I so knew Carrie was getting shot.

Great last two episodes. This season started off poorly but Ive been fully engaged since the fourth episode.

Saul's wife can GTFO though.

Re: Showtime Drama: "Homeland"

So Saul is the one who had the men keep Brody in Venezuela? I thought maybe Javadi told Saul off-camera during the interrogation where Brody is located.

Re: Showtime Drama: "Homeland"

Saul's wife and her boyfriends storyline is confusing. Is he part of the terror network? Why is he spying on her ? Or is he just using her to spy on Saul?

Is the lady playing Saul's wife the same woman from Mississippi Masala ?

Season 3 is terrible compared to season 1 and 2.

Re: Showtime Drama: "Homeland"

Another great episode. The show is a big clown car at this point, but a thoroughly enjoyable one.

I'm actually pretty disappointed Brody is back next week. The show has been much better without him or his tedious family.

Re: Showtime Drama: "Homeland"

The show has been slightly better without him, as a whole this season has been the biggest dip in quality from one season to another that I've seen- probably ever!

I find myself saying, 'what the hell was!?' after each episode. I guess i must be in the minority though, cuz the ratings are just as good as ever- just means they wont miss me cuz I can easily see myself done with this show if it doesn't get back the magic it used to have. The show used to be such a thrill-ride, high energy with twist and turns. This season it been speed-bumps u-turns, stop signs and detours!

Re: Showtime Drama: "Homeland"

My favorite show. And the most serious one I've ever watched considering that it lacks humor compared to Dexter or Breaking Bad (and that's a good thing for me, it didn't need). I love the writing, the characters, the acting is just amazing.

Re: Showtime Drama: "Homeland"

While this was another good, tense episode, the writers seem increasingly clueless about the geopolitical situation in the area.

Why the heck would Iran grant asylum to two confessed Al Qaeda members? They do know AQ and Iran are mortal enemies, right?

Re: Showtime Drama: "Homeland"

Broady must die. The character has played its course and there is no point in keeping him or his family around. Plus Carrie will go off the rails when he bites it which will make for a fun ride.

Re: Showtime Drama: "Homeland"

This show went off the rails when they decided that Brody was the hero. If they'd kept it with Carrie and Saul being the heroes, it would still be good. As it is now, it's very entertaining fluff (as fluffy as a show about terrorism can be, anyway).

I agree with you about Brody, but unless Showtime learns to stay out of the creative process and let writers write... it isn't going to happen. Brody will be president of the USA by the time the series ends if they get their way.

But Iran hates the US more than they do AQ
