Homeland's Portrayal of Pakistan as 'Grimy Hellhole' Angers Officials

19 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

It seems not everyone was enamored with Homeland‘s creative resurgence in Season 4.

Pakistani officials who binge-watched all 12 episodes of the Showtime hit’s recently concluded run of episodes were outraged by the way their country was portrayed, according to the New York Post.

Season 4, which was filmed in Cape Town, South Africa, focused on Claire Danes’ Carrie Mathison as she worked to uncover a terror plot against the U.S. embassy in Islamabad that was supported by some members of the Pakistani government and its Inter-Services Intelligence agency.

The Best TV Episodes of 2014, Part 4

26 December 2014 11:10 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In July, a panel of SoS TV editors and critics picked the best episodes of 2014 so far. Here are their picks for the best episodes of the second half of what has been another fantastic year for television.

The Honourable Woman, “The Empty Chair”

Written by Hugo Blick

Directed by Hugo Blick

Aired July 3, 2014

For anyone burnt out on Homeland‘s increasingly 24-esque take on international intrigue and perilous spycraft, Hugo Blick’s BBC/SundanceTV miniseries The Honourable Woman offers a respite, leaning harder on psychological and sociopolitical realism than overwrought action beats while tackling unrest in the Middle East and the repercussions of violence. Its first installment, “The Empty Chair,” is a case study in how to introduce both a complex story and complex characters without feeling like it’s needlessly dwarfing viewers in subplots just for the sake of it. Moreover, it works both as a sterling showcase »

Homeland: Season Four Ratings

23 December 2014 11:28 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

While some believe that Homeland has "jumped the shark" more than once, it's remained one of Showtime's most popular series. Will it be renewed for a fifth season or, will it be cancelled instead? Stay tuned to find out.

On Homeland, CIA officer Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) is one of the best in her field, despite being bipolar, which makes her volatile and unpredictable. With the help of her long-time mentor Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin), Carrie fearlessly risks everything, including her personal well-being and even sanity, to do what she feels must be done. The rest of the cast includes Rupert Friend, F. Murray Abraham, Sarita Choudhury, Tracy Letts, Nazanin Boniadi, and Laila Robins.

Will have to think about it more, but for now, this is my least favorite episode of the whole season. Of all the ways to end it, they did this? Waaay too much time on Carrie's family. All those closeups on Claire Danes' face was annoying, too. Well, one of my predictions came true, so there's that, I guess. Pretty disappointed with the finale. Djoko: I loved it. I thought it was a perfect way to end this amazing season and set up the next season. Homeland has definitely soared back to the top. 24Emmy: That was a rather weird finale. »

Five Keys to the Unexpected Resurgence of 'Homeland'

23 December 2014 8:02 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

At the conclusion of its messy, melodramatic third season, with Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) hanging in the main square and Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) clinging, grief-stricken, to a chain-link fence, "Homeland" seemed poised to slink quietly into TV viewers' memories, a once-great counterterrorism thriller lost in the thicket of love. By the conclusion of the fourth season, on Sunday, Showtime's aging drama had reinvented itself entirely, emerging as a stark, surprising tale of life during wartime. On the basis of the final five episodes alone, it easily qualifies as the year's most improved series. Here are the keys to the unexpected resurgence of "Homeland": 1. Know When to Fold 'Em The decision to discard Carrie and Brody's frenzied romance arrived more than a season too late -- the long, slow decline from the series' finest hour, season two's miraculous "Q+A," to "The Star," the season three finale, pained even the series' most. »

The 10 Best TV Surprises of 2014

22 December 2014 1:42 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Critics should avoid bringing too many expectations to projects, trying to view each with a fresh set of eyes. But inevitably, returning programs, the occasional new show and even entire networks/services foster certain preconceived notions, based on what’s come before, the premise or the creative auspices.

From that perspective, 2014 produced a number of pleasant surprises, in part from existing programs that received a creative makeover, as well as projects or providers that proved more appealing than anticipated. (The following is in alphabetical order, and as always, beware of spoilers.)

Almost Royal. BBC America’s unscripted spoof — about two sprightly youths, several dozen places down on the list of succession to the British throne, visiting unsuspecting Americans — looked like just another “Borat” knockoff. But it turned out to be great fun, thanks in large part to the heroics of Ed Gamble and Amy Hoggart in those roles.

New York Times Calls for Dick Cheney’s Criminal Prosecution Over Torture Report

22 December 2014 1:00 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

In an editorial board piece published Sunday, The New York Times called for criminal prosecution of former Vice President Dick Cheney and others featured in the recently released Senate Intelligence Committee’s report that details the post-9/11 torture program that went on during the Bush administration.

In a piece titled, “Prosecute Torturers and Their Bosses,” the Times implores President Obama to prosecute:

But any credible investigation should include former Vice President Dick Cheney; Mr. Cheney’s chief of staff, David Addington; the former C.I.A. director George Tenet; and John Yoo and Jay Bybee, the Office of Legal Counsel »

Showtime boss explains quiet 'Homeland' finale

22 December 2014 9:45 AM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Homeland concluded its critically acclaimed—and narratively refreshed —fourth season Sunday night with an episode that took an uncharacteristically quiet approach. Last night's hour focused on Carrie (Claire Danes), Saul (Mandy Patinkin), and Peter's (Rupert Friend) reentry into Washington D.C. after a traumatic tour in Pakistan that resulted in the loss of a regular character (Fara Sherazi). Peter attempted to develop a romantic connection with Carrie, while Dar Adal (F. Murray Abraham) revealed the CIA's Faustian bargain with a terrorist leader. Below, Showtime president David Nevins shares some of his thoughts on the unconventional closing episode. »

Showtime Chief on ‘Homeland': Eerie Real-World Parallels Heightened Drama of Comeback Year

22 December 2014 9:30 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Homeland” wrapped a comeback year Sunday by returning its full focus to the United States’ maneuvers in the big scary world of geopolitical chess in the Middle East.

Spoiler Alert: Stop reading if you haven’t seen “Homeland’s” season finale, “Long Time Coming.”

The show’s fourth season was eerily and tragically prescient about real-world events throughout its 12-episode run, right down to the season finale that aired five days after Taliban gunmen slaughtered 148 people, most of them children, at a Pakistani military school.

It’s taken as a given that “Homeland” stumbled from its own high bar in season three as the storyline focused too narrowly on flights of fancy and the doomed love affair between Carrie Mathison and Nicholas Brody. With Brody gone at the end of season three, the show was forced to reboot its plot engines and relationship dynamics. That gave the writing team led »

Homeland, Ep. 4.12, “Long Time Coming” brings the season to a quiet close

22 December 2014 9:00 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Homeland, Season 4, Episode 12, “Long Time Coming”

Written by Meredith Stiehm

Directed by Lesli Linka Glatter

Airs Sundays at 9pm Et on Showtime

It’s not easy being Carrie Mathison. Not only is she faced with catching and killing terrorists while dealing with her bipolar disorder, but she also has the worst luck. Really just the worst. In the fourth season finale, she’s right when she repeatedly insists that she has a lot to deal with right now — She’s still reeling from the “mindfuck” of Islamabad, her father is being put to rest, her mother has just shown up after abandoning the family 15 years ago, Quinn has finally made a move on her, and she cares about raising her daughter now. Our girl needs a minute.

While Carrie juggles all this, Homeland offers up a quiet and slow finale that stands in stark contrast with the last few episodes this season, »

Homeland: a mundane finale that got far too close to 24 – review

Read our Homeland episode by episode reviews

Spoiler alert: this review is for Us viewers who are one week ahead of the UK.

By the end of its third season Homeland, once the darling of television critics and Emmy voters, had outstayed its welcome. The continuation of CIA agent Carrie Mathison’s (Claire Danes) love affair with marine double agent Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) had turned the show into an unbelievable and tedious soap opera. The rebooted fourth season was much better, at least right up until the finale.

‘Homeland’ Finale Recap: Carrie Mathison Faces Big Dilemma Back Home

21 December 2014 10:02 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

After the explosive action and plot twists of the previous three episodes, “Homeland” closed its fourth season on a quieter note, with Carrie Mathison looking inward to slay a few personal dragons.

Spoiler Alert: Stop reading if you have not seen the Dec. 21 episode of “Homeland,” “Long Time Coming.”

The season that saw Carrie get back to what she does best — tenaciously fighting terrorists — ended with her trying to adjust to dealing with the stuff of everyday life: being a mother, dealing with the loss of her father and the painful reconnection with her long-awol mother.

Even the requisite cliffhanger moment to keep us primed for season five revolves around Carrie facing a moral gut-check rather than the imminent danger of a bomb going off or specific attack unfolding. In fact, the dilemma Carrie stumbles into in the closing moments of “Long Time Coming,” is the epitome of what “Homeland »

‘Homeland’s’ Low-Key Finale Completes Season ’24’ (Spoilers)

21 December 2014 9:31 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Homeland” just concluded season No. 4. But in the pivot the show made from its uneven past into its new-look present, it might as well have been called “Season ’24.'”

Of course, key producers on this Showtime series also worked on that earlier Fox show, which explored the war on terror in a world of tough choices and sacrifices, against an utterly ruthless foe. And while “Homeland” has maintained more nuance and finesse than its predecessor exhibited, the transition from the initial high of returned-pow Nicholas Brody and his “Manchurian Candidate”-like rise — exploiting a political class and media hungry for heroes — to a more conventional if often tense and surprising espionage thriller appears to have been completed this season, transforming Rupert Friend’s tormented operative/killing machine Peter Quinn into an updated version of Jack Bauer.

The fourth season also provided a showcase for Claire Danes, which might explain why »

(Spoiler alert: Do not read on if you have not yet seen Sunday’s Season 4 finale of Showtime’s “Homeland” entitled “Long Time Coming” and don’t want to know what happened.)

As she loses one parent, another steps back into the life of Claire Danes‘ Carrie Matheson on the fourth season finale of Showtime’s “Homeland.” After a 15-year absence, Carrie and Ellen Mathison’s (Amy Hargreaves) mother (Victoria Clark) simply strolled back into her life.

As we expected, Carrie didn’t take this very well at all, lashing out at her mother and kicking her out of the house. »

Season finale review: 'Homeland' - 'Long Time Coming'

21 December 2014 7:32 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A quick review of tonight's "Homeland" season finale coming up just as soon as I want lasagna at 10 at night... "I know how this goes. It ends badly." -Carrie What she said, I'm afraid. I started watching "Long Time Coming" about 20 minutes behind the live telecast, and kept seeing two sentiments on Twitter as I tried to catch up: 1)It was awfully quiet so far, and 2)Did this mean some horrible shoe was about to drop? Instead, "quiet" remained the watchword throughout the very slow, emotionally muted finale, which played less as a conclusion to the events of season 4 than an extended tribute to the late James Rebhorn, and as a biographical character on a character the show had long since snuffed my interest in for any non-professional capacity. If Carrie was someone I still cared about — and/or if I bought into the idea of Carrie and Quinn having »
