It has been an exciting year for television, especially in the drama genre. TV Guide.com has selected their top TV Shows of the Year and I’m going to be honest here, I feel left in the dark with their “Homeland” on Showtime selection.
No, I don’t get Showtime so there’s that. Secondly, I get bored and ticked off when I watch CIA and War on Terror related shows. So yeah.
At any rate, you all have spoken and chose Homeland, “The tense, twisty CIA drama, based on a successful Israeli series, explores the relationship between former POW Marine Sgt. Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) and Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes), an ambitious, unorthodox CIA operative who believes that Brody has been “turned” by Al-Qaeda. The show is executive-produced by former 24 producers Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon.”
According to TVGuide.com, “While it was the pursuit of the show’s unfathomable central question — is Brody a terrorist? — that got us hooked, we’re now tuning in for the complicated, surprising performances by Lewis and Danes, who, with every episode, elicit both our sympathy and our scorn. Ultimately, the real question the show isn’t afraid to ask is: Will we, as Americans, ever truly recover from the devastation of 9/11?” The short answer is no.
