Homeland Review: “13 Hours In Islamabad” (Season 4, Episode 10)

Between certain producers, the subject matter, the controversial depiction of Muslims, the Emmy wins and the genuine thrills that come from each episode, it is not original to discuss the similarities between Homeland and 24. “13 Hours in Islamabad,” which comprises 45 of the best minutes of Showtime’s Emmy-winning series so far, is as close as the thriller has gotten to the territory of its network precursor. Regardless, even with many similarities, the series still triumphs at following its own creative game. (Also, you wouldn’t hear the line, “I’m trying to kill the motherfucker who’s trying to kill us!” on 24, due to network constraints.)

The episode is divided into two halves. For the first 22 minutes – which take place in a form of real time that quickly conjures memories of the ticking-clock drama – the American embassy is under attack from Haqqani and his radicalized thugs. They reach the hidden stairwells »
