Audience Reviews for Homeland: Season 1

  • Jan 01, 2023
    The best season of the best spy thriller ever, a work of genre art.
  • Nov 14, 2022
    Good acting and an entertaining plotline is the key for a good show like this one. This season just nails those two conditions in every possible way.
  • Jun 22, 2022
    This is literally the best television I have ever seen. The acting. The writing. Everything is flawless. A must watch.
  • Apr 25, 2022
    Must watch television. On the edge of your seat for most of the first season!
  • Mar 26, 2022
    It's tense, frightened drama. Claire Danes's performance just shocked me, Wonderful crew & cast!!!
  • Feb 21, 2022
    Claire Danes rules. The rest of the cast is apt. The story has merit. Well directed.
  • Jan 23, 2022
    Ten years later and this series is still one of the best series produced. Writing, direction, acting, pacing…very few series have matched the level of drama and action as Homeland. Overall, the first season isn't the best or the most solid but it's still way, way better than the garbage that has been churned out by streaming platforms this past decade. As a team, you can't beat Mandy Patinkin and Claire Danes. It's true that this season doesn't necessarily turn out how you'd like it to (and the same can be said for later seasons) but that's what makes it so compelling. And gives it a hint of realism. Not a whole lot of happy endings in matters of war, defense and national security. And the truth is that when we go to bed at night, things aren't as safe and clear as we like to think they are. And again, that's one of the parts of this series that makes it compelling.

    Better late than never. Took me a few episodes to feel like I understood the lead characters. But once their personalities were fully revealed I felt like the show really came into its own. So far very glad I went back and watched S1.
  • Jun 24, 2021
    Pretty good show, but I am a bit alarmed as to how they are going to spin it out over 4 seasons !
  • Apr 14, 2021
    Top level writing and brilliant acting. Loved it!
