It's anyone's guess as to the final destination of Showtimes' freshman offering, 'HOMELAND.' Homeland had garnered good numbers both in the general positive assessment by critics to the show as well as ratings acclaim.
I'm really curious to see if the Sgt. Brody storyline is wrapped up this season with a new CIA-based story kicking off in season 2. I've been getting the impression that the showrunners feel that they can get 2 season out of the current schedule of a season 2 pick-up--so I guess I'll just wait to find out Homelands' season 2 narrative like most everyone else.
Speaking of HOMELAND'S narrative, season one's has been one roller-coaster of a ride--and the cast is kicking ass, too. It is really good to have Claire Danes back on television. She's still great. And Mandy Patinkin is perfectly cast. I love when he has some extended scenes with plenty of dialog. He makes it look utterly effortless. And he's has such a soothing-sounding voice, no matter what he's saying.
HOMELAND Episode 1.09 - 'Crossfire' Promo VIDEO:
After his attempt to sever ties with Abu Nazir, Brody finds himself reliving his captivity and recommits to his mission; Carrie finds herself in the middle of a public relations nightmare on the heels of the mosque shooting.
If you thought terrorism was Abu Nazir’s only motive for keeping Brody alive in captivity, think again. The revelation about what Brody was up to all those years comes out in this Sunday’s episode — and it’s a shocker. (Hint: It gives him one hell of a motive for possibly turning against his country.)
