    Default 2012 Outstanding Drama Series: Homeland

    I've never even heard of this show until the Emmys over the weekend. I guess it'a a new show of one season (2nd season starting this Sunday) and they apparently had an ass-kicking of all other dramas and winning eleventy billion awards.

    Anyone watch this show? Given that Weeds just permanently ended and Dexter has two seasons left, I'm hoping that Showtime has a new awesome show to watch. According to the few reviews I've glanced at, it is that good.

    People that have watched it, thoughts?

    Seen ~50% of it. Definitely worth the watch. Although, my favorite new Showtime series goes to House of Lies. Shameless is also some good entertainment.

    Lastly, lets be real, Weeds has been over for quite some time.

    I believe some people don't believe this show deserve its own thread.

    Well I was asking people that have seen it.

    For the record, "The Office" has TWO threads. Deserving?

    And every regular mother fucker in here gets a new birthday thread, every year. Deserving?

    If really interested, sho is running a homeland marathon starting sat morning.
    You know, but that's valid because if we are all gonna die anyway shouldn't we be enjoying ourselves now? You know, I'd like to quit thinking of the present, like right now, as some minor insignificant preamble to something else.

    So... thoughts? Is he innocent?

    Season 2 was very blah compared to the first season. But I'm glad the finale went down the way it did, I was wondering how they were going to make me look forward to Season 3 and they did just that.

    I just finished the first season. Completely overrated. Starts off very intriguing and then turns into another episode of 24. Danes and Lewis must have really stepped up their game for season II, because their acting is subpar. You will want to punch Danes in the face by the end of season 1.

    The writing has a few too many plot holes also. Go read some of the reviews.

    I watched the season 2 finale last night and Danes gets worse every episode. her psychotic breakdowns are just not entertaining.

    Couldn't make it past the second episode with the crazy-eyes girl shouting into cellphones in every scene. Is it all like that?
