Anyone else watching Homeland on Showtime?

I was a big fan of Rubicon and was sad when it was cancelled, but this is an even better political/spy thriller.

I expect this show will win a lot of emmys, it's very highly acclaimed

http://www.metacritic.com/tv/homeland/season-1

For those who aren't watching, I fully recommend it. Certainly my current favourite drama.

Here's the trailer for Season 1 to pique your interest.

I've heard this show is great. I wonder is season 1 is on video on demand or if there is a way to watch without downloading it? What season is it in?

This grew to be be one of my favorite shows to watch before we left the US. Now I don't get whatever channel it's on (which one is it btw?), which is a shame. I hope to catch up on it soon.

The internets can solve all problems. Some tv providers have Showtime though if I'm not mistaken.

The internets is great, expect when it comes to picture quality. With really well shot shows and movies, it's hard to go from beautiful and big HD to dinky laptop streaming quality. I guess you get what you pay for, so I can't complain.

This show is one of my must see shows that I'll actually watch the day it comes out. Absolutely love the show.

Only 2 episodes left and a order for a 2nd season of 12 ep's has already happened, so that's awesome news as well.

I can't tell if this show is good or trashy.

Most torrent sites like eztv have HD available. You can transfer on to a usb key and play through an xbox or whatever on to the TV.

Yeah, I know you can torrent and transfer, but it takes time and effort to get it to that stage.....I get lazy and usually just end up streaming the low-res version because it's quick and easy to watch on my laptop in bed.

The problem is I want it free and high quality and now, ha.

Didn't you sue someone who had the same problem once?

It's on Shaw VOD if you have the movie central package, and it's being broadcast on Super Channel.

I'm a huge Damian Lewis fan, so I'm hooked. Really well done characters, and lovely boobies all the time.

This is a great show, complex and intriguing. I am enjoying it, the quality from internets downloading is sometimes better than what you get on TV, just my experience.

Keeps getting better.

I think Mandy Pintankin has been fantastic in his role.

Great show I'm excited to see what happens in the last two episodes.
It's funny to think these two guys are the same.
