“Homeland” Season Two

“Homeland” makes its triumphant return after winning six Emmy® Awards, including Outstanding Lead Actress for Claire Danes, Outstanding Lead Actor for Damian Lewis and Outstanding Drama Series. Marine Sgt. Nicholas Brody (Lewis) is now a U.S. congressman, and former CIA agent Carrie Mathison (Danes) has returned to civilian life. But when a new and potentially devastating terrorist threat emerges, Brody and Carrie's lives become intertwined once again and they resume their delicate dance of suspicion, deceit and desire. Delve deeper into the edge-of-your-seat excitement with the thrilling second season of this "unmissable and gloriously suspenseful" (USA Today) hit show.

Without watching Season One it takes a minute to figure out what's going on but this show is definitely easy to get lost in, as in captivated by, like so entranced that you forget to cook dinner until bedtime.  And yes, sadly, I did that!
I really enjoyed this season, except I do think it could do with a little fewer "waterworks" by Claire Danes.  The show itself is really good but it doesn't need that much crying, weeping, sad, sorry for you drama.  I feel bad saying that but really, why is her character so much of a baby?  Clearly there are some issues that she has, the mental kind, I can only assume they would have shown us in Season 1 what her problems are but since I didn't watch it I think she needs to stop tearing up every episode.  Although, you do know that she was made to believe that she's completely nuts so that could be the soul reason.  Makes you wonder, if the CIA treat their own like that then how do they treat the people they're "against"?
I enjoyed this show, I will definitely watch it again, maybe go back and watch Season 1 and then continue on from there.  I can really appreciate this series, it is my type of show.  Unfortunately, they usually stop playing the show that I really like so maybe I shouldn't say that too loud.

I give this show 1 whole thumb and 1 to the knuckle...Up out of 2!!

  1. My mom loves this show. I've never seen it. Guess I should check it out.

    1. I'm sure you heard it when you were younger.... "mother knows best" heeehee. Thanks for stopping by and reading my review. I really liked this show. Took a little to get into it though, every time I see Claire Danes I'm reminded of "My So-Called Life" with Jared Leto... she hasn't changed much.
