Third-episode verdict: Homeland

The CarusometerA Carusometer rating of 1

In the US: Sundays, 10pm, Showtime
In the UK: Acquired by Channel 4

Well, ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner. The first, no-reservations drama recommendation for the fall 2011 season is Homeland. I’ve not much to add to my review of the first episode, except to say that the next two episodes do answer all our worries and in some ways are better than the first episode. It’s also acquired a nightmarish new title sequence that beats even American Horror Story‘s, despite that’s show homage to Se7en.

Just go watch it – you won’t regret it.

PS Interesting to note there are two secret Brits in this show: Damian Lewis and David Harewood.

PPS Is it just me or Showtime now better than HBO as a network?

Carusometer rating: 1
Rob’s prediction: Will last a season. Where they’ll go to after that, I don’t know, but it deserves to run and run based on this
