Homeland is no longer the irrelevance it threatened to become. It ended well.
Homeland may never have the zeitgeist it once had, but it certainly has regained its footing with an exciting spy thriller.
After a number of consecutively excellent episodes, we're prepared to say it: Those of you gave up on Homeland last season should come back into the fold
The show has returned to its roots as an espionage thriller, in part by taking an unsentimental view of its heroine's worst behavior.
It was fair to expect that "reset" might mean returning to the show's spy thriller roots, instead of giving us a literal reset in the manner of The Hangover 2, which had the exact same plot as The Hangover, only with a new locale.
Audience Reviews for Homeland: Season 4
Homeland slightly improved with one if its best seasons, thanks to a fresh start, a new imposing villain that even when he's not present, he feels like a threat; by putting some characters under extreme situations they never were before and a couple of superb action packed episodes that were missing from the previous seasons.
Still, some silly storylines still occur that feel like belong on a whole different show. Add some inconsequent plot turns, Carrie going nuts again (and using this fact to put her place in jeopardy AGAIN), more Quinn but that's not necessarily great, he's a one trick pony in the end and more unnecessary family dramas around that have very little connective tissue to the overal narrative.
