“Homeland” Catches Viewers Minds and Grabs Industry Awards

homeland logo Smart television is in such short supply these days. At least on the regular networks.  Cable has become the new mecca for intelligent programming . Beginning with HBO’s “The Sopranos,” writers have defected from prime time to go to cable.  Showtime has taken the crown from HBO with great programs like “Shameless”, “Episodes” and “Homeland.”  An export from an Israeli television, “Homeland” is relevant in a post 9/11 world.  It keeps the audience guessing whether Brody is or isn’t a terrorist,

Each cast member has a purebred pedigree, Damien Lewis first came to our attention in the mini series, “Band of Brothers” Claire Danes was the misunderstood teen in “My So Called Life.”  Mandy Patinkin is just a plain show biz legend . He was in the original cast on Broadway opposite Patti Lupone in “Evita.”  This talented trio brings the story to life each Sunday night on Showtime.

As the show opened this season, Washington was still reeling from the explosion that ended last season. Mandy ‘s Saul  is now in charge of the FBI. He is scrambling to try to repair the reputation of  the agency. Unfortunately  to do this, he must discredit Carrie . This results in hospitalization and more shock treatments as well.

In the mean time , Brody is out there. Carrie has made a vow to clear her lovers name.  Mrs Brody has her work cut for her as well.  Since everyone thinks her husband is a traitor, all of their finances have been cut. Her daughter had to be hospitalized after a suicide attempt.  The funds for the hospital stay had to come from their savings. She needs to have someone come help with her troubled daughter, so Mike to the rescue.  Does this mean she will use Mike for something besides the man of the house?

Homeland airs on Sundays on Showtime
