Re: Showtime Drama: "Homeland"
It's almost as if Carrie being mentally ill is essential to her character... Sarcasm aside, I don't understand this complaint about the show. I saw it on twitter earlier, and had to resist the urge to sarcastically tweet people I don't know. Carrie is bipolar, which is a mental illness that does not just go away. Danes portrayal of this is pretty awesome. Unless she has a brain transplant, this will not change. If you hate seeing this, then you hate Homeland - Carrie has been mentally ill for the entire series. I understand that some want to see a Brody terrorism spin-off, and that's fine - as previously noted, I want a Quinn black-ops spin-off. However, neither of these shows would be Homeland.
