Quote:
Who's the hero who's the threat? When MIA Marine Sgt. Nicholas Brody returns home to a hero's welcome after eight years in enemy confinement, brilliant but volatile CIA agent Carrie Mathison isn't buying his story. She believes that Brody has been turned and is now working for Al Qaeda. What follows is a dangerous game of cat and mouse with nothing short of American national security at stake. Claire Danes, Damian Lewis and Mandy Patankin star in the provocative, suspenseful new Showtime Original Series HOMELAND, from Executive Producers of 24.

I've been excited to check this show out for a while now and since the pilot leaked I figured I'd make a thread. The cast looks solid and based on the promos I've seen it doesn't look like anything that Showtime has been airing for a while.

Damian Lewis and Claire Danes are fantastic in the pilot. I can't wait to see how the season unfolds.

Try and avoid the stream if you can since I've read they went a bit overboard on the censoring.

Premieres tonight, please watch! I'm going to be really sad if I don't have anyone to discuss this show with.

I really want to see the next couple episodes before I start theorizing where the season is going. I'm not entirely convinced that the images we've seen in the pilot can be considered reliable.

Not much more to go on than the pilot but I'm not sure I care. Carrie and Brody are absolutely fascinating to me and I just love seeing them develop. I really like Saul and Carrie's surveillance guys, but Carrie's boss is a completely unlikable asshole. I felt really bad for Carrie's asset who I'm sure is going to wind up dead in a few episodes.

I've got to say, the opening credits are just awful.

At this point I'm willing to trust that the writers have an idea of how to continue the show past the first season without ruining the whole thing.

I called the asset getting killed last week but I didn't think it was going to happen so soon. They took it in an interesting direction though with her not necessarily getting made, but rather being killed for the necklace.

I really liked Brody's scenes with his daughter. This episode definitely gave her a bit more depth than just a bratty teenager.

This was definitely a slow episode... Hopefully it really starts picking up, and sooner rather than later. It's the 24 producers, right? Was hoping it'd be a bit more action-y than this.

I really doubt it's going to pick up in the action department.

The only indication he's turned so far is him beating his partner to death.

I'd consider that a big deal

beating his partner in front of Muslim captives so he can stay alive and prove himself- lying to both the CIA and his partner's wife about it

lying to Claire Danes about meeting that top honcho terrorist even though he actually did

choosing to adopt the muslim prayer practice rather than to try to escape out the door

the potential of him sending a message via hand signals every time he's on camera



there is more than enough indication

I totally forgot about the hand signals. The other stuff I'm not so sure about.

what would be his motive to lie to the CIA then and withhold information?

Maybe he just didn't want to be interrogated for hours.
