5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST EVER? 8 Feb 2014
By Alexander Bryce TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Watched series one and loved it. Missed the next season so had to buy season two which I devoured in a couple of nights before mooving on the season three. International spying and home security. Never ending suspense.
Could this be the best series ever. I think so.

3.0 out of 5 stars Frustratingly Disappointing Second Season 4 Feb 2013
Format:Blu-ray
Like many others, I came into Homeland Season 2 with BIG expectations. The first season was amazing and ended fairly openly, leaving a ton of possibilities going into the second series. Sadly, Homeland S2 failed slightly to live up to its own high standards.

Firstly it has to be said that once again, Homeland's biggest strength is in the performances of the cast. Everyone is brilliant. Claire Danes and Damian Lewis deserve all the credit in the world in their roles as Carrie Mathison and Nicholas Brody and present us with fully fleshed out characters and the majority of the supporting cast are equally impressive. Even Brody's daughter Dana transitions from annoying, bratty teenager to one of the more interesting characters in the show. Top marks all round.

The series starts on a high note with the CIA performing undercover work in Lebanon to track down a contact in Al Qaeda. It turns out the disgraced Carrie is the only person who can get information out of the contact and the CIA reluctantly bring her back for the purposes of the mission. What follows is an amazingly tense few episodes which could rival any big-budget spy film. However from here on the series takes a bit of a nosedive and becomes very formulaic and dare I say it, tedious at times.

I think the main problem with Season 2 is that beyond those opening episodes there is a lack of any real story arc. The story seems to be composed of lots of individual character threads that never really come together or hold attention. Considering how gripping the first season was it was very disappointing and frustrating to watch week after week without feeling like anything was really taking off.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most Thrilling Season Yet! 22 Dec 2012
By ekb
Format:DVD
After the excellent first season of Homeland I was wondering whether or not to bother watching the second season. The first season finale to me was a complete let down as I felt that maybe Homeland should have been a mini-series of just 12 episodes and end on top. The use of amnesia to help Brody still be a terrorist was stupid and beneath the writers who up to that point were excellent. Well I'm glad I decided to stick with it because unlike the first season that was slow in the first half and action packed in the second, this season is action packed all the way through.

One major criticism from the proper critics has been 'plausibility'. I decided to look this strange word up and found this; having an appearance of truth or reason; seemingly worthy of approval or acceptance; credible; believable: a plausible excuse; a plausible plot. To these people the plot must be plausible to be enjoyable; well for me this show lost all plausibility during the final episode of season 1. Now this is not to say that these critics don't have a point, they do and its a very valid one. Homeland is so well written and plotted with real world references throughout the series; for instance this season kicks off with a possible plot by terrorists for revenge about something that was in the news in the summer (2012). This is a what if storyline. Its possible it could happen. However, to me this show is 24 without the restraints of having to set it over a day and the use of stronger language. These critics might have wanted something else but this is what this show is so expect some completely unrealistic plots and incidents that are near impossible mixed with some very possible and realistic storylines.

5.0 out of 5 stars Second outing for Danes, Lewis and Co 28 Sep 2013
By Mikey TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The first series of Homeland was excellent and was thoroughly a suspense thriller throughout the entire run of episodes. The second series is just as good but it seems to lack the suspense and novelty of the preceding run.
Claire Danes and Damian Lewis are back again in their roles - both excelling in their capabilities as actors. British actor Lewis is also surrounded by a couple of other Brits, David Harewood and newcomer to the series Rupert Friend playing analyst Peter Quinn. Friend is a very good addition to the show and his US accent is 100% perfect.
We see alot of Brody's daughter and her entanglements in this series, something I felt was simply there to fill in the episodes. Mandy Patinkin is fantastic as Saul and Morena Baccarin utterly convincing as Brody's wife.
Well worth a watch!

4.0 out of 5 stars Carrie-ing it off 3 Jan 2013
By Antenna TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Season 2 of Homeland is faster paced, more exciting yet also less plausible than Season 1 which you need to watch first.

Brody (Damien Lewis) continues to walk the tightrope between his role as a war hero Congressman being groomed to serve as future Vice President under the unscrupulous Walden, and that of a closet Muslim convert manipulated by the fanatical al-Qaeda member Abu Nazir to perpetrate acts of terrorism. Although not fully recovered from her manic episode, her confidence shattered from the mistaken belief that she was "wrong about Brody", CIA agent Carrie Mathison is called back to work on an assignment requiring her unique rapport with a would-be defector in Beirut, and is allowed to stay despite her loose cannon unreliability.

Although increasingly ludicrous, the plot twists are no more so than in many equivalent series. It is also quite amusing to spot the occasional error, as when a supposed Beirut street seems to contain a number of Hebrew shop signs.

"Homeland" stands out for me as the only popular mainstream American drama which avoids an unquestioning, gung-ho, patriotic stance on US foreign policy on the lines of "US good no matter what - Muslim terrorists bad". Apart from the fact that, in real life, Brody would surely have had more counselling, we remain unsure as to what extent he really is a terrorist, and whether his embracing of Islam is the result of brainwashing or a genuine spiritual response. Walden, a former Director of the CIA, now Vice President, and Estes, the Head of CIA Counterterrorism are portrayed as corrupt and amoral "bad men" in contrast to Abu Nazir who sometimes arouses sympathy, and to the complex Brody who at one points expresses the desire to prove that he can be "a good man".
