Homeland Season 2 Episode 4 recap What was it like, do you think? When she was going to shock therapy every three days, undoubtedly driven by her father or her sister, then escorted home to…what? Nap on the couch? A little TV with the nieces? Was she back to normal the next day? I can’t picture Carrie then, because I believe we’re just beginning to get pictures of the “real” Carrie now. Full Story

Homeland Season 2 Episode 3 recap Herewith my ignorance on sleeper agents – are they not trained for certain situations like these? Is there really no further qualification for being the man on the inside beyond “He appears to be affable to the people we’re trying to infiltrate?” Some suspension of disbelief where Brody is concerned is not only necessary but probably a good thing. Full Story

Homeland Season 2 Episode 2 recap I am writing this after a long weekend with family and turkey and contentment. I feel good – anything but cynical. So, though I sometimes have to check myself, I feel like I can ask with impunity … How great is Carrie for Saul’s career? Think about what we’ve seen of him. Full Story

Homeland Season 2 episode 1 recap You can only do it once, what I just did. No matter how many seasons of a show there are, you can only once catch up so that you’re ready with the rest of the world.   After that, you have to wait between breaks like everyone else. I do know this – and yet I still feel like I got the best gift of all. Full Story

Homeland Episodes 9-12 Oh, Isa. Oh ,Brody.   This was a tough, tough four episodes to watch.  Only 12 episodes to tell this story – and I completely understand why they went the way they did. Learning about Brody’s plans any earlier would have made us more and more sure that he was going to remain one of the “good guys”, or made us more convinced that Carrie was going to be ineffectual. Full Story

Two things can happen when a show sweeps an entire subsection of categories like Homeland just did: either fans who aren’t watching jump in and catch up on this new phenomenon so they can be a part of the club, or they sniff  that obviously it’s already “too popular” and agree to miss out. Full Story

Homeland Turbowatch Part 4 – Episodes 7 & 8

Here are the things that, are far as I can see, we can still believe to be true because we haven’t seen them to be false yet.  My new move with Homeland is that only what I physically see is true, and even then, it better not be in a flashback. So.  Carrie seems incapable of lying. Full Story

“I Can’t Help But Feel I’m Missing Something”

Homeland TurboWatch Episodes 3 and 4 Oh, man, Carrie Matheson, I like you maybe too much.   Maybe there’s something about that name, “Carrie”, that makes fictional televised bearers of it somehow endearing, to the point where you get so lost in the woman that the show she’s in feels too real and you have a reality problem. Full Story

When you bolt awake and sit straight up on your couch because the guy you’ve been watching on secret surveillance has had a nightmare and shouts himself awake which in turn jolts you, your day kind of starts with a bang. Welcome to my brand new addiction and yours: Homeland. It’s rare when you get a chance to catch up on shows you’ve heard about but somehow missed. Full Story
