Homeland (s02.e01-e02)

Homeland – Season Two: There’s the smile and a wee bit of redemption, suspense and a whole lot of genius… TV, oh how I love thee…
★★★★★

The Sunday just gone marked the return of the second season of Homeland (in the UK), staged some six months after the last episode ended and from the onset, Homeland updates you and makes its mark, keeping you just as glued to the TV as the first season, except that this time, it’s even more enthralling and suspenseful. Being a week behind the US, I couldn’t resist the urge to catch the second episode and whilst there are some minor gripes with certain things (let’s just say the Skype call and the positioning of some people as examples), everything else feels spot on, from the revelations to all the sub-plots (the father-daughter relationship my particular favourite), the writing and of course, the acting. Clever, ambitious and above all else, entertaining, Homeland is quite possibly the best show currently on TV and for you to miss it would be a huge mistake!
