Homeland is simply a well written, brilliantly acted and heart stopping show. Throughout season one I was getting drawn in on the two main characters, Carrie and Brody, and understanding what they were both going through and their constant dance around each other. Along with this you are drawn in by the story and how situations develop and the severity of the situation along with the emotional and physical stress both are put under. The story, although a tad slow at first, really picks up pace and keeps you on the edge of your seat and really wanting to know what happens next. Series 2 however beats season one easily and i couldn't stop watching until i'd seen all the episodes and the great finale.
I wasn't originally sure about buying this as, although i'd heard some very good things, I have seen such classics as The Sopranos, The Wire and the West Wing and wondered whether i would not be able to appreciate it as much for watching such great shows. I was however, very much, mistaken. Homeland was enthralling and these first two seasons are two of my favourite seasons ever and were able to match the shows listed. The performances also match up, even getting closer to the late James Gandolfini's performances.
If you like action, suspense, good writing, good acting and a twisting and turning story which has you gripped, then buy this and watch homeland.

If you loved 24, this is made by the same team and is a must watch! It has the same fast paced action, scheming and plot twists. Impossible to just watch one episode, you'll be up all night!

Believed this would be a glory halleluja show in the name of the great america, but instead it is almost the opposite. Love it, exciting and makes people think. I recommend it. Hard to not binge watch it!

Just amazing. One of the best series I have ever seen. I had watched on tv but was staying with a friend who had not seen it. He was riveted as I was for the second time. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Series 1 started with a bang. Kept on the edge of my seat all the way through. (Not to mention, as one character said "the wife is hot...".) Series 2 and the effect of constant dramatic changes turning on its head in every episode,my perception as to who are the good guys and who are the villains, is becoming a bit tedious. So much so that I have shelved Homeland for a while and have resumed the excellent Damages series and, on hyped recommendations, have bought Breaking Bad to see me through the winter. Very lucky to have such gems in the midst of current TV mediocrity. Homeland is certainly good but, for me, requires a break from it for a while to rebuild enthusiasm.

The Americans love these fast moving action series with more twists than a hula dancer and this is no exception. The plot is more mature and less improbable than the earlier 24 series but it has much of the same style. The acting is good, the technical side excellent and (a great improvement over the authoring of 24), one can literally watch it all through with just a few clicks of the remote as flashbacks and end / front titles can easily be passed over. I enjoyed it and the set is now doing the circuit of my family!
