After being convinced to check out Homeland I decided to spend a week watching it. I have to say without a doubt that it is one of the best TV shows I have ever seen. From the very first episode I was pulled into its amazing premise.
Homeland follows Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes), a CIA agent with a secret that is alerted by one of her operatives that an American POW has been turned by their enemy. This POW appears to be Nicolas Brody (Damian Lewis) a recently rescued Marine Sergeant. Carrie takes it upon herself to uncover Brody’s plans when she is not believed by her co-workers including her mentor Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin).
Homeland is instantly gripping and each episode heightens the suspense of the plot. The viewer is left anticipating each coming episode wanting to know if Claire will discover Brody’s agenda or if Brody really is who he says he is.
I completed the entire season in a week and already I want to delve into the second season. Every other TV show and movie that I want to see has been put on the back-burner so that I can completely immerse myself in Homeland.
