The winner of 6 Emmy Awards including Outstanding Drama Series, Homeland is an edge-of-your-seat sensation. Marine Sergeant Nicholas Brody is both a decorated hero and a serious threat. CIA officer Carrie Mathison is tops in her field despite being bipolar. The delicate dance these two complex characters perform, built on lies, suspicion, and desire, is at the heart of this gripping, emotional thriller in which nothing short of the fate of our nation is at stake.

The CIA in this series does tasks that are actually the province of the FBI. The CIA doesn't arrest people, nor does it conduct surveillance and investigations of terrorists on US soil. That is entirely FBI domain. Of course, it could be part of the premise of the show the the CIA is operating outside of its authority. But if that is the case, they should at least acknowledge the legal issues. But the CIA characters openly discuss doing these things seemingly without any fear of exposure. See more »

Season 8 is so good!!
16 March 2020 | by polosarmaSee all my reviews

Season 8 is just amazing!! A deserving end to the series which has captured our hearts for the last 10 years. I thought after season 5 homeland had become like one of those Emmy winning series which are forgotten after 4-5 season and no one cares about watching it. But I have been a dedicated fan and stuck till the end and I'm so glad I didn't stop watching it. This post is for all those viewers who thought Carrie has lost her touch... No she hasn't!! Please finish this series for her sake. This last season reminds me of the tension and stress that I felt while watching season 1&2
