After Sunday's "Homeland" season finale, it's clear Season 3 will be a very different beast, which executive producers Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon confirmed Monday in a conference call with members of the media.
Season 1 ended with only Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) believing in Nicholas Brody's (Damian Lewis) guilt and the Season 2 finale of "Homeland" ended with her as the only one who believes in his innocence. "That was the broad architecture of the year," Gansa said.
How Brody will figure into Season 3 is "very much up in the air," Gansa said. "We had a much clearer picture" of what the first two seasons would be than what the third will be, he said. Will Brody recede into the background now that he's on the run? "I think it's an open question," said Gansa, who added that a change in Brody's level of involvement was "inevitable."

Spoiler Alert: Do not read on if you have not yet seen Season 2, Episode 10 of Showtime's "Homeland," titled "Broken Hearts," which aired on December 2.
As Season 2 of "Homeland" enters its home stretch, the pace is amping up, and Sunday's episode may have been one of the Showtime drama's most shocking hours yet.
After Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) was abducted, Congressman Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) helped terrorist Abu Nazir (Navid Neghaban) kill Vice President William Walden (Jamey Sheridan). By assassinating Walden, both Nazir and Brody may feel like they've finally avenged the death of Nazir's son Issa -- but does helping hack Walden's pacemaker mean that Brody has turned for good? Will Carrie protect Brody or turn him in? And just how many more twists can be packed into the tangled, obsessive story of Carrie, Brody and the CIA?

Full Metal Jacket, the celebrated Kubrick film that delivers a gripping and scathing look at war and the military “process” is now available in an Anniversary edition Blu-Ray book, and I’ve got a copy for you to win.
Popularity and awards aside, Full Metal Jacket (like most Kubrick films) left a clear mark that became more than just an iconic moment of the culture. Love, hate, or indifference, you couldn’t help talking about it, and it was a film that pushed the collective sense of what films can do to such a degree that we live in its wake still.
The release is a must-own for fans, and has a fair number of things to brag about, but it loses a few points for not offering a little more in the way of new material. The newly remastered Blu-Ray may be all a lot of people, and it delivers on looks, »
