Two episodes down, how many more to go? I thought I’d never say this, but I believe my beloved “Homeland” has seen better days.
Aficionados of the show know that heretofore, “Homeland” was amazing stuff. I don’t know what kind of malaise has descended upon the writer’s room at this place, other than to speculate that the first two episodes this season are “foundation” shows needed to build up to a nice “BAM” next week.
For those who have missed it this season and need a quick catch-up, this about sums it up: Saul’s beard has grown to lumberjack proportions. It wouldn’t surprise me if this year, three Al Qaida birds fly out of that thing, bearing AK-47’s. Cary is off her meds again (won’t she ever learn), and Showtime is saving a fortune b y giving her make-up artist the month off. Brody’s annoying daughter has fallen in love with a fellow patient at a mental rehab facility, and while she’s been released, she revisits the place for laundry-room booty calls. Oh, you might be wondering about Brody and his whereabouts. So are we all. Yeah, they haven’t told us yet where he is, but previews depict him bald (goodbye ginger-head) and on a table getting some sort of torture treatment. Yawn.
I’ll be the first to applaud if the producers turn this thing around. I’m giving it three more episodes.
