Goofs

Brody and Captain Faber both have non-regulation (evenly graduated from 0" to 3 inches) haircuts. Although 3 inches is allowed on top, you rarely see a Marine with hair that long. Most Marines, especially at the rank of Sergeant or Captain, never wear their hair the way these actors did. Most sport "high and tight" or "high regulation" haircuts. See more »

Engaging
21 December 2011 | by Red_IdentitySee all my reviews

After hearing all of the acclaim for Homeland's first season, I have decided to give it a go. The Pilot was was all pilots should be- engaging enough to continue. The Pilot wasn't perfect, but it moved at a brisk pace, and was always intriguing. I also want to say that Claire Danes is fantastic so far. Her character is very interesting, and Danes handled it magnificently. This character has the potential to become one of the classic TV problematic characters that we have (Tony Soprano, Walter White, Don Draper, McNulty). Al in a,, very pleased with this Pilot, and I will definitely continue watching. These days, it seems as if Television has come full circle... it is completely well-made and well thought out, and if this turns out to be half as good as Rubicon, The Wire, or Breaking Bad, then I am all the better for it.
