Homeland

Postby j24jags » Tue Nov 22, 2011 1:52 pm

Anyone else watch this show? It's in its first season on Showtime (It airs Sunday nights after Dexter). It's an awesome show. The producers/writers have come from 24 and Dexter, which are also two of my favorite shows. I would say the feel is definitely more similar to 24 than Dexter, but it's definitely worth checking out.

The Imdb rating is 8.7/10 and it was renewed for a second season after just its first four episodes. It's eight episodes in now and it's definitely worth starting IMO.

i'll check it out on dvd.. i, like everyone else i assume, don't have showtime. those channels are like 15 bucks a month each, so i dont have a need for more than HBO.

I've been watching....great show. In my mind I'd rather have Showtime with Dexter, Homeland, Weeds. Whoever hasn't seen this show should ;-D

Ditto I think Showtime has the best slate of shows on of all the pay networks.

Really looking forward to the finale tomorrow night ;-D

Knowing the producers of 24 I wouldn't be shocked if the Brody/Walker storylines are both resolved and there's a completely unforeseen new cliffhanger/plot that is left unsolved.

love this show. i was a little disappointed with the ending, but at least it gives me hope for the 2nd season. i was really curious what path they were going to take for the follow up season.

Finished up season 1 a few days ago, and let me be the next one to say: You should definitely check this show out if you haven't yet...
