Hey 3.5 readers.
Jazz music. Ominous beginning photo montage. Crazy Carrie likes pills and wine. (Not a recommended combo).
BQB here with a review of Homeland.
In case you haven’t been watching, the first few seasons of Homeland were essentially a modern reboot of The Manchurian Candidate. Mentally disturbed CIA agent Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) chases and falls in love with brainwashed returned soldier Brody (Damian Lewis).
Without getting into specifics, this is the first post Brody season. Critics wondered if the show could last past Brody and still be interesting and thus far it has.
This season, Carrie has taken a job with a legal defense organization. She engages in questionable tactics into getting her client Sekou off the hook on terrorism related charges only for him to later…well. I’ve said too much. Just watch.
The big surprise for me is that Quinn (Rupert Friend) is still alive. I thought the show runners had made it clear last season that he died but apparently not. It seemed lame to me that they didn’t follow through on this story line but as it turns out, he’s been interesting thus far this season and I wonder if perhaps the show might ultimately be leading to a happy ending where Carrie and Quinn run off into the sunset together.
Have you been watching the show? What say you, 3.5 readers?
