Audience Reviews for Homeland: Season 2

  • Jan 23, 2022
    This series is the exact opposite of garbage like American Horror Story. That alone is reason to watch it. It feels like it was written more in the style of a book rather than a TV series or film and that adds to the way that the plot builds. It's not a complex path from plot development to conclusion…it just builds at a steady, interesting pace and each episode completes another piece of the puzzle of what becomes the overall picture. It's easy to watch but it's almost one of the more complex series (or at least was at the time of production). Series have come a long way over the past decade but the majority are just crappy franchises and profit vehicles for studios who are chasing after that endless story that will hook and capture audiences enough that they'll keep their subscriptions. This series was about telling a story so they didn't drag audiences out too far or too long…each season had its own main plot and that plot typically tied itself up by the end. Producers depended on solid writing, acting and storytelling to keep audiences coming back…not endless gimmicks and a never ending story (think Handmaid's Tale) that go nowhere but circles until they've literally bored even the most ardent fans into numbness. Kudos to the producers for making something of substance that actually went somewhere.

    Homeland delivers a thrilling second season as the stakes get higher and secrets are revealed. When Brody's suicide tape is discovered during a mission in Beirut, Carrie is brought back into the CIA to run an operation to uncover Body's terrorist cell; meanwhile Vice President Walden courts Body as a potential running mate for the upcoming election. Once again Claire Danes and Damian Lewis give excellent performances that are extremely compelling. And the writers do an extraordinary job at building the tension and suspense, and at constructing the season story arc. They also continue to probe topical sociopolitical issues in interesting ways. Additionally, the action scenes are intense and exciting, heightening the drama, and enough can't be said about the mind-bending season finale that changes everything. Delving deep into the world of espionage, terrorism, and politics, Season 2 of Homeland is incredibly powerful and full of intrigue.

    American propaganda us against them type of thing. Truly detestable only white americans warmongers love this type of BS.

    Homeland is one of those shows that makes people think about everything that goes on around the world, related not only to CIA, GRU, ISI, but most importantly it teaches you to put things into perspective and not judge people directly. Everyone has their reasons and their causes for behaving in certain ways, but the most important thing is being able to realize that people think differently for many reasons. It is not the worst, it's what makes us human in the first place. This show is about putting yourself in someone else's shoes. It sounds cliché, but it might save the day, the month, the year or the world! Regarding the show, the actors are amazing. Don't stop watching after season 3.

    typical series about cia/fbi stuff between us vs m.e.

    Great writing, unexpected twists and turns. Fantastic performances by Damien Lewis, Claire Danes, Mandy Patinkin. It may be a slight step down from the magic of the first season - but I am still hooked.

    Surprised at the overall reactions of this series, and thus its popularity (but then, "Friends" was once the #1 TV show in America, so, what can I really expect? I watched the first two seasons, and got terribly bored from: A) the TERRIBLE acting, particularly by Claire Danes (god, she's HORRIBLE in it; whether that's the directors she's working with or what?), it was almost unwatchable, and so TYPICALLY "TV" B-quality crap acting. B) the OBVIOUS propagandist nature of the series... in this sense, Mandy Patinkin's participation (and I REALLY like him as an actor) is OBVIOUS in his Pro-Isreal / Anti-Muslim rhetoric, in the scripting, and his acting (the sheer horror in his face when this question of division between the two sides of this conflict supercedes his acting of the role he's playing, his hatefulness is that obvious, to me). But generally, the overall production is SO Flag-Waving USA We're SO Persecuted Yet Innocent !!! (Wei she ma ta men bu shi wan wa men ?!?!?) I couldn't keep watching. Yes, it is timely and maybe even accurate, if you want to compare it to the over-reaction of Western / Muslim phobia that is propagated by Western main stream media! But seriously ???? C) The writing overall was just so main-stream "TV-Lame". Maybe it got better over the years? After 2 seasons, I couldn't see it trending in that direction. Generally bored, overtly unimpressed by the acting quality, and implicitly offended by the propagandist crap. To be clear, my personal viewpoint is not Pro-anything or Anit-anything; I am of Western origin, raised in a Christian environment, but there are two sides to every story. This program doesn't try to remotely consider the circumstances of life today with any objectivity what-so-ever. That's disappointing. Hey, but that's just me!

    With the bar set incredibly high by the show’s debut season, it is to huge credit to the show’s crew and cast that they have somehow managed to maintain the highest of standards in the show’s second season. Danes and Lewis once again give powerhouse performances that are recognised at the Emmys and Golden Globes. The season flows exceptionally well, and when the viewers begin to relax they are shocked back into a state of nervous excitement by events of intrigue, heart-pounding action and mind blowing revelations. From episode eight all the way through to the final episode (twelve) there is an anything-can-happen edge that lurks at the back of your mind, and these episodes are potentially the best episodes Homeland has released. Danes’ performance as the bipolar counter-terrorism analyst is extraordinary in its realism and accuracy as well as her dramatic delivery. The chemistry between Carrie and Brody is palpable throughout the season, especially the scenes at the cabin as their character’s imbalances come together in an understandable and beautiful way. Both Carrie and Brody have evolved this season, Brody is no longer just the poster boy of the war on terror, he has become so much more, he battles against all the different personalities he has, trying to find the one that he belongs to. We do not truly know which one he belongs to which makes for hypnotic viewing as we are not sure whether to trust him or not. The second season of Homeland sets pulses racing, stomachs churning and minds strategising. This suspenseful terrorism drama is one of my favourite shows, it reminds me of Spooks (a BBC spy-drama series 2002-11), in its realistic portrayal of the western counter-terrorism strategies. I am having a break from Homeland before I begin watching season three, as I am watching Mr. Robot, Westworld and The Big Bang Theory. https://rwh92.wordpress.com/
