Thanks to a few friends of mine who casually mentioned how much they love the show Homeland, I started watching the show on Showtime on Demand. And then it was Thursday.
For real, I lost two evenings watching that show. All 12 episodes. One after the other. In a word? Fantastic (I feel like I might you 'amazing' too much, but it was that too!).
It stars Claire Danes (hello? My So-Called Life anyone???) as a bi-polar CIA agent who's convinced that a POW (played by Damian Lewis, who looks freakishly like my friend Mike) returning home is a terrorist. You literally spend each episode going, "He's so not a terrorist", "Wait, is he?", "No." "OMG", "Oh, maybe?", "huh?". I won't give anything away, and quite frankly, I'm as confused as anyone so I really don't have anything TO give away.
Season 2 starts 9.30 and I cannot wait!!
P.S. Jenni and Diane, you owe me two nights of my life back...
