Dampened the Homeland premiere occasion
12 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Showtime incorrectly planned the "two-part" event because the second episode, "Trylon and Perisphere", was not nearly as potent or smartly crafted as "Drone Queen". In fact, it considerably dampened the "Homeland" premiere occasion. The invaluable Saul was put to no use and floated in limbo for most this episode, waiting to be better utilized in future episodes. Inconsistent character work and plotting afflicted the episode's narrative, including one instance where "Homeland" challenged a sensitive topic that not even the deplorable season three would have risked. (For those who have seen it, I am referring to the bathtub scene. Maybe the writers were thinking, "Let's just throw our great character in Carrie Mathison completely down the drain with the baby's life?") "Trylon and Perisphere" felt like an orphan from early season three and let down the adventure "Drone Queen" built in the firm premiere.
