So anyone watched this and is it any good?

Just saw it advertised on channel 10. I loved band of brothers plus enjoyed life so I'll give any show with Damien Lewis in it as the main character a go.

Plus thumbs up to Claire Daines and Morena Baccarin (Firefly) for hotness.

It's pretty good, except for the opening title is utterly terrible.


Season finale airs in the US tomorrow.

Started watching it after it was recommended in a previous thread.

Not super great but I'm looking forward to the finale~! I'm sure it'll be a cliffhanger and I'll be cheesed I have to wait.

yeah its real good. its got a lot of intrigue and a lot of drama too, so it's not super violent but still entertaining nonetheless.

If they didn't elaborate on the corruption, Brodie could have quite easily died and the plot to continue with a new threat just like in 24.

I just found that ep particularly boring and predicable where previous eps were pretty darn epic. Bit of a let down for a season finale.

Brodie, the character and the actor, are central to the show, just like Jack Bauer was in 24 so I disagree. The finale was awesome, he now plans to get inside the White House now. I wonder if it will now become like the West Wing? :p

How many deus ex machinas were in that episode, jesus.

Even the end.

Had a feeling the show was going to end on a meh, i was also hoping he would go through it, or at least get caught.. head blown off while reaching for the trigger.. but then they chose a middle ground where nothing conveniently happened.

Just watched last two eps. An excellent season of TV right there. I also wanted to see what would happen if he did it, f*** it was tense though, but I knew it was renewed for a 2nd season and they wouldn't dare kill off Brody's actor. I think they ended it extremely well, if a little frustratingly, with her conveniently forgetting the name Isa.

I hope Claire is back for next season.

We don't know if she's forgotten the name, won't know for sure until episodes after the shock therapy.

I only just got around to watching this, smashed the whole season in a week or so, it was awesome!

Yeah, not sure on the ending. I kind of think that the show would be better as a one off season and it had some closure. Not sure how it'll go for a second season.....

Def worth checking out if you haven't seen it yet (obviously it's on channel 10 now sunday nights, maybe up to week 4?)

Yeah, this show was pretty awesome, it quickly ended up being top of my list of things to watch each week.

I had a crush on Claire Danes until the last few episodes, where she went nuts and started crying and screaming. F*** that was unattractive. B**** be crazy.

Halfway through the season they could have replaced Claire Danes with the chick who played Starbuck in BSG and I wouldn't have noticed the difference.

Great show though. The writers have really matured from the neverending unbelievable conspiracies and mole-fest of 24 to something a bit more realistic.

I just watched it recently (after the first season had already ended). I was hooked pretty quickly, it was much more interesting than I expected it to be. Really keen for season 2.

Loved this f*****g show...

Spoiler:

..then i watched the final episode.


Are you f*****g serious? How f*****g predictable and f*****g boring. Worst finale i've ever seen on the 50+ tv shows i've finished. F*****g trash.

Would have been WAY better if the black guy ended up having escaped from his captives and had been hiding out to try and shoot the main white guy to stop him killing the president...

F*** even blowing up everyone in the bunker would have been better then "i left my phone on during a suiciding bombing and my daughter gave me cold feet my making me promise some bulls*** over the phone..." and claire magically remembers he knew the kid only to have 'memery erased' by 'shock treatments' for her 'biopolarism' ... fucckkk offfff

What a f*****g trash final episode. I bet they drag claire remembering that mr main actor knew the kids name over the next $(homeland.season2.episodecount -1 ) episodes



What a waste of another great series because they wanted to drag it out for another season without having to invent good material.

If somebody is reading this thread without being up to date on the show, it's their own fault if something gets spoiled.
