Enjoyed episode 2 as well. Love the irony of what he did in the garage as just the type of hard evidence she needs.

Also I do not see things ending well for her informant. They've started to build a nice set up where we are gonna wonder if and when she'll slip up and meet a pretty painful end.

I managed to watch the first episode of Homeland, and although I enjoyed the episode (mainly due to Morena Baccarin ), I still think the plot is way too simple for my taste. And thanks to all his flashbacks of the real events, we already know Sgt. Lewis is indeed the traitor, or is the making of one. There's really no suspense but how he will leave enough evidence for Carrie to use against him. However, I hope they will have alot of plot twists to keep the audience guessing, and even more nekkid Morena Baccarin.

You mean within the show itself or to the audience? Because to the audience, you're definitely suppose to know but to the people in the show its not really obvious at all.

I mean he has to be turned otherwise this show would have no plot.

I agree, because the whole show is built around the return of Sgt. Lewis and Carrie's suspicion of his cooperation with his captors, but if they just keep the story linear then it could get bored rather quick. Maybe Carrie will start suspecting other people who she thought was her allies, and Lewis' allegation isn't so black-and-white (at least to the audience). I doubt Homeland can ever out-shock Game of Thrones but I hope they'll make an attempt to wow the audience.

I don't have Showtime, but I'm thinking about watching the first episode on the show's website. It's just nice to see a Showtime series, other than Dexter, that actually interests me.

This is probably my favorite out of the new shows. It should be interesting how they will prolong the story specially if it goes beyond one season.

Another type of national security threat? Makes sense to me since people have kind of been saying its 24(I've never watch the show) without the guns.

I love Claire Dane's elated reaction to the solider finally talking the "heroes" spotlight at the end of episode 2. It's like she's thinks she has been vindicated and she's not crazy at after all.

Soo good.

I do wonder if his praying in the garage is a red herrring. A person can convert to Islam without also being a terrorist.

Political commentary perhaps? But I don't see it as that because immediately after doing his prayers his attitude to the world instantly changed. Like he was comfortable again, ready to face the media and be a poster boy.

I just saw the pilot (planning to watch the second ep soon) and it was great. It's well-written and well-acted (due to both Danes and Lewis) and it kept me on the edge of my seat. I hope the series continues to be this good, because I'm hooked.

Another good ep.

The mastrubation scene was really hard to watch for some reason....

The Prince genuiely was sad about the death. I assume he really knew nothing about it, and she was killed for the jewelry; not because they were on to her.

I really liked episode 3. This is quickly becoming a great show. I knew the necklace would have something to do with the informant being murdered but I thought it had a transmitter. The twist at the end was nice and the relationship between Claire Danes and Saul is becoming really interesting. The only thing holding this show back, IMO, is the writers struggle with the domesticity of the family. The dialogue between the mother and the daughter felt very forced and unconvincing this week, for example.

Overall though, I'm liking the show an it is passing Walking Dead is the second best show on Sundays now--right behind Boardwalk Empire, of course.

His wife. But he wouldn't allow her to touch him. Hell, i don't think he even looked at her. What was the point of making her take her shirt off?...not that i'm complaining!

The mother/daughter relationship i just as it should be; typical teenage girl at odds with her mother. I think it's quite apparent that he knows about his wife and his best friend, hence the talk he gave his daughter in the woods about cutting mom some slack...

Perhaps. I think he is willfully ignorant. I just think the actual dialogue meant to show tension in the family between the parents and children is not the best. The rest of the show is great.
