One of the best episodes in TV history
31 January 2012 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

I am not writing a review about the episode, but more of a recap what I felt.

I have seen plenty of series and movies. And when I say plenty, I really do mean it. I consider myself as part of the "intelligent audience" whom can occasionally watch a "popcorn blockbuster" but what I am looking for is proper drama - motives and feelings.

I felt compelled to write a few words here, since this episode was just stunningly great. It has been years since I felt something similar. In case you are wondering that was the "original finale", Adama's court, of Battlestar Galactica season 2. Later on producers moved that to be an episode in the middle since they thought that it wouldn't be enough for the audience whom would look for that "popcorn action ending". My point being - the drama was stunning there as it was here.

If you enjoy proper drama like The Wire or Crash (TV) you will enjoy Homeland. That much is certain.

Thanks for creating this, dear production team. I actually felt it.
