Storyline

Carrie Mathison, a CIA operations officer, is on probation after carrying out an unauthorized operation in Iraq. As a result, she has been reassigned to the Counter terrorism center. Whilst in Iraq, she was warned that an American prisoner had been turned by Al-Qaeda. When Nicholas Brody, a U.S. Marine Sergeant, is rescued after being held hostage since 2003, she suspects that he is the turned American prisoner. Brody is received home as a war hero, so Carrie goes to any lengths possible, ignoring protocol, to catch him out. Written by Kad

Trivia

The American series is based on an Israeli drama series called 'Hatufim' (Hebrew for 'Abducted' or 'Kidnapped'). Gideon Raff created the original series in response to the many Israeli soldiers who had been enemy captives and their brutally difficult, and largely unreported, efforts to reintegrate into Israeli society after they returned home. One of the major differences between the Israeli and American series is that the U.S. does not conduct prisoner exchanges with enemies, so Sgt. Brody was returned to the U.S. after being rescued by a military team. See more »

Goofs

Brody's uniform ranking changes several times throughout season 1. At highest rank on service uniform he has the ranking of Gunnery Sergeant. In dress blues to attend dinner, he is shown with only a Sergeant ranking. In reference to repeated naming of ranking, he is referred to as Sergeant, if the Gunnery Sergeant rank is true, everyone would refer to him as Gunnery Sergeant or Gunny for short See more »

Crisp and Engrossing
8 October 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I've only seen the pilot but it was exceptional viewing. Not for children though.

If they continue to allow the writers and actors to flex their muscles this show will shine. There is a professional quality to Homeland that I haven't seen in a long time. The direction was subtle but commanding, the actors were ace, and the writing was poignant without once hinting at the maudlin.

Hopefully the studio won't cut the creative/professional legs off this one just as it starts running.

Very engrossing stuff.
