Re: Showtime Drama: "Homeland"

Disappointed by last nights episode. Really ? Carrie is still in love with a guy who is a terrorist and that caused her all that pain ? I had high hopes for this season but now I am not sure.

Re: Showtime Drama: "Homeland"

The acting was sublime last night, but I do agree I'm unsure about where this is going now.

Re: Showtime Drama: "Homeland"

They are not "letting him go", they offered Broady immunity in exchange of his help. They had no choice at this point. It isn't unrealistic, deals with criminals are done to catch a bigger fish. I mean, keeping in mind that this is a TV show and the genre, overall it is quite a realistic show.

And some people are obviously missing on the subtilities of the show. The relationship between Carrie and Broady is extremely complex and ambigious. Carrie decided to use the personal angle to get Broady to speak, and it worked. She is not an idiot, nor is she like a dumb teenager in love. Part of the interview was obviously a game. However it's clear she still has feelings for him so that makes it very ambigious between the 2.

The last episode was the best one, by far.

Re: Showtime Drama: "Homeland"

I wondered where they were going to take it after they took Broady in so early in the series, they played it really well though!

Still totally in love with this show!

Re: Showtime Drama: "Homeland"

The interrogation scene was one of the best moments this show has ever had. Spectacular acting by bth Lewis and Danes. I smell another Emmy for both of them.

First of all, well said although I dont know if I completely agree with you.

Broady gets immunity in exchange for his help, but it seems unrealistic because which idiot is going to trust him to be a mole. Broady is so deeply invested in his revenge and alliance to the terrorist group, do you think one interrogation scene is going to change him? Who would be dumb enough to let him out in the public? Well I guess the "juice" in the show is to see which road Broady takes. Still think its unrealistic.

I completely agree with you on Carrie and Broady's relationship. It is complex, manipulative on both ends, and genuine to some degree from both ends as well. We are seeing such a vulnerable Carrie this season compared to last seasons' cut-throat Carrie.

Does anyone get bad vibes from the other interrogator guy who is working with Carrie? Maybe I am thinking too much about it....

Re: Showtime Drama: "Homeland"

Yeah but he's going to be under a lot of scrutiny now that he's working with them. Plus if there's any sign he's still somewhat involved with terrorism, he would lose his immunity, so it seems unlikely he would take that road at this point. Yes they are taking a risk, but I suppose they consider that it's a risk worth taking. Now... what's really unrealistic is how fast this is all hapenning, but this is the part where it's television and not real life, things need to evolve fast.

Re: Showtime Drama: "Homeland"

Just when I was starting to having my doubts about where the show was headed they blow my mind with that episode.

Re: Showtime Drama: "Homeland"

i'm always a little behind in these threads about TV shows just finished season 1 yesterday. there's some things i didn't like, like the yellow-tinted flashbacks or the smug and unscrupulous politicians (like we've seen them a million times before), but overall it was really thrilling and stirring. like many said before, the acting is great; apart from danes and lewis, i especially liked mandy patinkin as saul or - my favourite - david marciano as virgil.

looking forward to season 2.
