This is by far one of my favourite shows on TV. The actors are fantastic and they do a good job mixing in good pacing and character building as well as mindblowing moments that keep you hooked. The previews they have for the next episode always tick me off, because I have to wait another bloody week before I can watch the episode.

Great show though, my favorite drama series going on right now, with a first season that has been as good as anything I can remember since the Wire/Breaking Bad

This show has a lot of cool moments too, like when Brody lied about cheating on his wife and looks into the camera at Carrie. Also when the Saudi Diplomat comes home and Brody is sitting in the chair. Two really bad ass moments.

And Morena Baccorin's boobies are awesome.

Thanks for the recommendation. Have heard about it but never seen it. Watched 3 episodes so far and it seems pretty good. Claire Danes is much better than I would have expected, I guess I didn't know much about what she had done with her career.

Also ... nude Morena Baccarin is nice of course

The preview for the season finale has me infuriated that it's not next week already. This show is simply amazing.

This show really is one of the best on television now. 90 minute episode next week (which would mean about an hour of actual episode without commercials). Can't wait.

This is quickly becoming my favorite show and I look forward to the finale. I think the only show that is better than this one currently is Game of Thrones.

Fanfriggintastic finale!

This show is so good. I think Daines wins an Emmy, she's been awesome.

The story is fantastic.

Never seen the show, but I clicked the link hoping for a discussion on the first book of a series featuring a bad-ass drow:

I loved the finale as well, but there were a few awkward little bits that seemed a bit forced. The whole "why kill the man when you can kill the idea" was a bit blunt.

I thought the whole idea of using the sniper as a diversion to get everyone past the metal detectors was pretty smart, but yeah, having him not pull the trigger after all that effort to get to that situation was a little disappointing, and predictable. But I kind of figured they would find a way to keep Brody alive.

Can't wait for next season.

I haven't watched this yet but hear it's terrific. Do they have any plans to replay the first season over the next few months of which anyone is aware?

The first eight episodes of Homeland season 1 air this Monday. Not sure when the rest are on. My PVR is set to record them.

Homeland won best drama series and Claire Daines won best actress in a drama series at the Golden Globes last night.

The episode when she first comes home from the hospital was jaw dropping in terms of her performance (and frankly Mandy Patinkin's as well) and I think that episode solidified her as the clear winner.

Can't wait for season 2!

There is a Homeland marathon on Super Channel this Saturday. I'm getting my PVR ready as I'm interested in seeing what beat out what was an awesome season from Boardwalk Empire.
