Anyone watch Homeland??

I have gotten hooked on this show...

great writers, excellent acting, and perhaps a somewhat realistic look at the seamy side of intelligence.

Yes ... but we don't have HBO so not on the current season. Watching it on DVD. I don't get hooked on TV shows much but this one is excellent all the way around.

The only other show I liked as much was Jericho.

If you have Audible there are TWO authorized Homeland books... One of them is a Prequel, the other is current time with the story - it was released TONIGHT and it is FREE for a limited time only. Jump on the deal if you have Audible.

I just downloaded both.

I watch it on DVD so I'll have to wait till next year to watch the current season.

It's on Showtime...

Homeland has become one of those shows I have to watch every week. Unfortunately, I usually don't see the current episode until around Tue/Wed.

First season was excellent. Second season, was a little slow, but had some entertaining parts.. then it ended in AWESOME fashion. Problem is, how Season 2 ended, the writers are gonna have their hands full keeping Season 3 entertaining. The first two episodes of Season 3 have been a bit dull, hopefully episode 3 will be better.

Should've let Dana kill herself. All this teenage angst better be over soon.

I think we're in store for something w/ Dana... not really sure what though. They seem to be focusing on her a lot, when really, "teenage angst" shouldn't really be a focal point on this show.

I'm gonna make a pretty bold prediction. This is not a spoiler, as I have absolutely zero evidence to support this. I'm betting she does something along the lines of a terrorist attack this season.

Been watching it since day one.

Three other shows that I've been watching and waiting for the new season are "The Americans", "Banshee", and "Justified".

None are as heart-pounding as "24" but you have to take what you can get.

I doubt that is the last time we see her on the prayer rug.

I believe that Homeland is a remake of an Israeli miniseries.

I would like to see her rolled up in a rug and tossed in a lake. She is effing annoying.

Great show, but I fear this will be the last season as the main creator, writer and sometime director died this past year.

We get it on netflix as I refuse to pay for cable to watch advertisements. Homeland is pretty good and beats the hell out of the stupid sit-coms that are not even funny. Hope they keep it going..................

Oops I meant Showtime.

My So-Called Adult Life. Watched a few episodes with my wife when it first came on. Couldn't stand it. She still watches though.
