I don't like the first 3 discs due to some of those weird characters but the show becomes more and more interesting as it moves forward.
There are a lot of twists and manipulations in the story.
I will give 4.5 because I like it.

Great work. A summaryof the state of our "leaders" and "truth seekers" - doing all they can to "fight the terrorists!" Yeah, stupid - you bet! Just as our reality tries to be something that will never end our suffering.
A apt tale of our nationalistic foot shooting.

Couldn't get into it and did not watch all of the first series. Besides sex and foul language off-putting just plain boring.

Really enjoyed it, wasn't sure how they would be able to maintain an entire season (much less series) on the premise, but boy do they ever. And it doesn't get old!

Really liked it. Was hoping for a sequel. Some weak spots but watching the whole season in 1 go there is bound to be some soap opera stuff going on. O

Oops there is another season...looking forward to watching that: months from now!!

I'd have given this series 4 stars insted of three if it didn't have a rediculousy bad soap opera subplot about the main characte'rs perpectually constipated, relenntlessly whiny, having a bad time of the month every day of her trashy life daughter.

Great spy who-dunnit thriller series. The most captivating series I've seen recently. Just didn't give it 5 stars as overall I wasn't happy with the last episode, but the ending made me excited for season two.

Damian Lewis' performance is what I liked best about this. How he. a Briton, becomes a suburban American dad is just astonishing. The plot is just so-so, been there, done that. . . . including the climax.

SNL Spoof of Homeland

I watched this spoof before I started watching Homeland. It was ridiculous and totally over the top. Then I started watching Homeland and can appreciate how accurate it is. Anne Hathaway nails crazy. Couldn't find a single clip of the whole thing but here's one bit from youtube.
