Homeland is a slow-moving but gripping tale that follows Nicholas Brody, a US Marine who if rescued after being held captive by Al-Qaeda since 2003, and Carrie Mathison, the CIA investigator who gets the impression all is not what it seems with Brody.
Homeland is a unique series that keeps viewers guessing right till the very end. For most of the season viewers don’t know if Brody has returned as a sleeper agent or if Carrie’s past mental health issues have clouded her judgement. Or are both assessments true?
Homeland not only deals with hard-hitting topics such as religion and terrorists but it also looks at the impact these things have on a modern family. While Nicholas was gone his wife and his best friend began a relationship that could tear the Brody family apart. Meanwhile Carrie is dealing with being under suspicion from her own side.
Homeland is definitely a series to watch. It does take a little while to build up, but before you know it, you’re hooked.
Claire Danes stars as Carrie with Damian Lewis as Nicholas, Morena Baccarin as Nicholas’s wife and Mandy Patinkin as Saul Berenson, Carrie’s mentor at the CIA.
Homeland season two will air on Showtime September 30.
