I was able to watch the first 2 episodes of Homeland, season 1. They were edited for On Demand, but it didn't take away from the story at all. I have a love hate relationship with Actor Damian Lewis. I have watched him in a couple series (The Forsyth Saga, Life)and I just had a hard time liking him. But he is perfect for this part. He is Nicholas Brody. He has this hidden anger, this awkward intensity that plays so well in this role. In the first episode, I was having a hard time believing Claire Danes as a CIA officer. She's always played these rather mousy, insecure characters and this woman, Carrie Mathison is one feisty little thing. She's willing to break all the rules, and I like that. I like it a lot. I'm only on the second episode of season 1 and I can tell you, I am already over Jessica Brody. MEH. She's annoying. Anyone agree? I feel like the storyline between her and Nick's best buddy Mike has already been done. It's to be expected, in a show where nothing is suppose to be as it seems. I am loving the premise for this show. I love play between Danes and Lewis, though they rarely do a scene together. I love Actor Mandy Patinkin, who plays Saul, Carrie's somewhat adviser and friend. He is great in this role and the danger, not only dealing with terrorists, but the defying the country you work for, has made for some interesting twists. I'm hooked. I might need to just order Showtime. Ha. Thoughts?
