Re: Showtime Drama: "Homeland"
Okay so I took the bait!
About 2 wks before the premiere of season two, in large part because of the people in this forum, I decided to check out the show that everyone was raving about. I started watching on OnDemand and I got so hooked that in the span of an entire day I watched the entire season one. With each episode the show got progressively better and better up until the finale.
Man, what a disappointment!!! I thought this show was fast paced and smart but I was left feeling like the CIA is filled w.idiots and on top of that I got left w.the feeling that this would be like US soaps that just drag story lines into the ground. I would have had a lot more respect for the show if they wrapped up the Brody storyline rather than make the entire series about Brody. Don't get me wrong the series was brilliant, which is why I couldn't stop watching. It was just the finale that fell flat and that had more to do with the feeling that this Brody storyline was getting ridiculous- and like a run in sentence.
The first two episodes of season 2 have at least given me some hope, especially now that Saul has found out the truth. So far I'm pleased but I I'm still not hopeful- I just get this nagging feeling that I'm not going to be pleased with how they wrap things up w.Brody assuming they even get to that point this season. For now I'm keeping an open mind and enjoying the twists and turns...we shall see.
