Somehow the Yanks have learned to make gripping drama: The West Wing, The Wire, Breaking Bad, now Homeland. It used to be only the Brits could make stuff this watchable.
The cast is first-class and brings some big screen quality to the TV.
Clare Danes is a revelation and completely inhabits her edgy character. The scene of her nervously getting dressed and undressed, her bra tangled up across her flat chest, is sublimely brilliant acting.
Loving everything about this show so far, except the wife's haircut: I mean, dudes, no way a woman that hot has a haircut that bad.
Insert "Quality Show" Here...
Anyone who has had the privelege to see Damian Lewis in HBO's quality show "Band of Brothers", will be pleased to see him back in military uniform in a modern day version of what used to be a predominantly "Cold War" premise. As in "Band of Brothers", Damian underplays his "hero" role beautifully, with the "is he or isn't he a planted sleeper or spy" question the general Plot or theme. Clare Danes as Carrie Anderson overplays her role equally well with her somewhat justifiable paranoia creating some quirky, awkward moments that both run delightfully and embarrasingly close to the bone for those of us who are familiar with persons with such issues. There is a certain irony that the only person seemingly willing to stick their neck out and stop another potential September 11 situation, is someone with some fairly serious mental health issues - hardly reassuring to the "free world" or the viewer until Carrie reverts back to her lucid best. With the exception of Saul (Mandy Patinkin), all the rest of the sub-characters seem too career-minded, politically motivated or self-absorbed to go against the media driven "welcome back soldier" fanfare and the politically points scoring backslapping. Both main characters interchange the role of antagonist / protagonist regularly and I suspect much of the same as the series goes on as further clues, characters and sub-plots are revealed. Always great to see Mandy Patinkin in another "paternal" role in which he acts as both a credible conduit to the lines of power and a foil for Carrie's erratic personality. All three main characters are a masterstroke of casting, but it is Saul's temperament and political influence that gives both the viewer and Carrie ongoing hope.
All in all, a quality show which I hope will continue it's high standard.
