I was up early @ home... cant remember this past week and they had a marathon of Homeland and I ended up watching em all

it was pretty good as background noise while i worked for the first half and then it picked up pretty well

got to see Morena Baccarins booby so it was worth it



was hoping to have Sgt. Brody yell out "allahu akbar" and then nothing happens when he flicks the switch

he could be like j/k

Saw that this won some Emmy's so I decided to check it out and I watched the pilot.

This show is terrible. Aside from the DEADLY hot chick from Firefly, and Captain Winters who is cool...the writing is awful and predictable.

It's writing like this that pisses me off. Taking me for an idiot.

- The OBVIOUS discomfort between the wife and the best friend...the camera makes no mistake to show you this in full disclosure. Cmon, I'm not a fucking child. Let's try it more subtle.

-Who the fuck opens a medicine cabinet in a stranger's home and helps themselves to an aspirin without asking?

-How did this crazy woman ever get into the CIA without anyone knowing this?

-She comes on to her "friend" of 35 years, the bearded dude? Come on. How fucking strung out is she? Who behaves like that in real life?

-Hot young mom from Firefly, to daughter: "Look, I know things have been tough between us, but let's get through this ok?" WOW. I'm SO GLAD this awkward teen/mom relationship has so clearly been revealed for me. I get it now. The weird "not really caring that I just found my daughter with a boy and a bong" scene at the beginning didn't establish this at all...

- Claire Danes' character is one tone the whole time: Whiny angry bitch on the verge of tears. Except when she's whoring herself out in the bar, then she's "sexy and spontaneous" Her character is like a female House; crazy but really smart. Been done before.

Upside: It's on Showcase, so there's swearing, violence and boobies. But GODDAMMIT, it pains me that people can't write or direct this kind of thing better.

Don't get sucked into the idiocy of this show.

You're judging the entire series to be idiotic because you watched the pilot? Must make you a real expert. This show is worth watching, and obviously if they are getting some acclaim they are doing something right.

This series is far from idiotic.

That was some stupid shit Carrie pulled going back into the apartment. Yea, it got them that flash card, but come on, you almost got the entire team captured.

Reckless. I was hoping the men chasing her would either capture or kill her.

Brodie and his damn text. I wanted to see baboon nazir's brains splattered everywhere.

I'm not interested in seeing this series go 10 seasons. Every opportunity Brodie doesn't blow himself up or his dumb cover, or someone else finding out about him, or baboon's self-righteous ass getting killed, it disappoints me. Part of me can appreciate the series and its entertainment value, but the other part of me thinks "die terrorists" and "kill that bastard traitor".

It was idiotic of her to rush in there. But what's more curious is how shortsighted the agency was for not securing that house after the hit was done. Red1 should've been rerouted, for a secondary objective, (after the capture order was cancelled) to secure the house and obtain intel.

I think Red 1 was surrounded by the militia. I guess they couldn't safely escape undetected.

When Carrie was having her panic attack or whatever during Saul's call with HQ, I was basically thinking, "Not this shit again. What? WTF is wrong with you now, Carrie? Why can't you be normal?". I understand that they wrote her character as bi-polar for a reason, probably to make her extra interesting to the viewers, but some of that stuff she goes through is so tiring to watch.

I would be a horrible social worker.

Listen, the pilot episode of a series can be full of flaws, trust me I understand, lower budget, shot months before the series etc. But the characters are all there, the story and the tone is set.

I've seen enough. Just because they are getting acclaim, that doesn't mean shit. Big Bang Theory gets plenty of acclaim and it's quite possibly the worst, least funny show I've ever seen in my life.

Homeland is still IDIOTIC.

Agreed, Carrie is so fucking annoying when she starts crying and feeling sorry for herself. Interesting to watch when she's working but elsewise, annoying.

I definitely wasn't expecting them to find the video clip of Brody this early and it will be really interesting to see where it goes from here.

Seriously though.

So finally, they're on top of Brodie's shit.

Sad thing is the main character is still a bipolar, suicidal wreck. How are we as viewers suppose to cheer for somebody so messed up? Carrie's going to have to save the world a few times over before I can personally overlook/forget her past fuckedupness.
