Full Show Summary: During an operation in Irak, a group of marines make an unexpected discovery - locked up in a terrorist hideout, in a terrible health state, they find Nicholas Brody, an american combatant thought dead years ago. When he’s sent back to America, he meets the president and is greeted as a hero by a population that has seen so many of their people die on that remote war. His wife and children suddenly have a complete family again, and everyone is happy with his return. But things may be not bright as they seem - Through the course of her investigations, Carrie Mathison, a CIA agent, discovers that Brody may have turned to the enemy, becoming part of a plot to attack America. She insists on putting him under surveillance, and he certainly seems to be not so loyal to the government as he once was, but is that any wonder after such a long imprisonment? He also shows some erratic behaviour, but that could simply be the result of the terrible tortures he endured. Carries insists on keeping the investigation, but it’s tough to go against a national hero, specially when some people are questioning your own mental health. One of the hits of the 2011 TV season, Homeland is a very carefully written thriller, brought to life by the executive producers of 24. As with that series, they’ve chosen a established movie star, Claire Danes, to play the leading role, well accompanied by supporting stars like Mandy Patinkin, Morena Baccarin and specially Damian Lewys as the troubled ex-soldier. Though it’s not strictly an original series (it’s based on a previous TV show), the script is full of uncertainties and suspense, and it gets the viewer glued to the screen with ease. Homeland’s quality has already been recognized by the TV Academy, which granted it the most important awards in the latest Emmy Ceremony, including Best Drama, Best Lead Actor and Best Lead Actress.
