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.
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 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.
