Even the most devoted fans of Showtime’s are sure to agree that Homeland has had some ups and downs creatively.

On Homeland, former CIA officer Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) was one of the best in her field, despite being bipolar. Season five picks up two years later and we find that she’s now working for a private security firm in Berlin. It seems unlikely that her life will be any less tumultuous. The rest of the cast includes Mandy Patinkin, Rupert Friend, F. Murray Abraham, and Sarah Sokolovic.

What do you think? Do you like the Homeland TV show? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a sixth season?
I just started watching this show, basically out of curiosity. I’ve seen it advertised, but never took an interest until recently. I tell you, I was so glued to my seat I barely got up. All other shows I usually watch faithfully were put on hold. You could call me unfaithful. Yes, how could I leave the shows I’ve been watching for so long.

Awesome show..1st 2 seasons have been best!
I LOVE ❤️❤️❤️ this show and pray it comes back next year (and going forward). It is my one addiction!

My wife and I disagree! At the end of almost every episode of Homeland over four seasons we have looked at each other in amazement over the high level of drama, suspense, acting, directing, and writing we have just witnessed. Yes, there were maybe two episodes last season that did not live up to this standard, but Homeland’s creative “lows” would be… Read more »
