News & Interviews for Homeland: Season 5
Considering the payoff and potential within these first three episodes, it's time to embrace both Carrie and Homeland like we did at the start.
After some credibility problems in past seasons, Homeland hits the reset button Sunday on Showtime - and it works.
Season 5, which picks up more than two years after last season's boom-clap climax and measured denouement, offers neither the candy-hued crazy of Season 3 nor the tightly plotted thrills of Season 4, but rather something more ruminative and sedate.
[Carrie Mathison's] comeuppance provided one of the high points of the fifth season's last episode.
I'm being incredibly inartistic, but I think that she - Carrie Mathison - is such a compelling character, and I think her journey is part and parcel with what Homeland is about, juxtaposed to the world and what is happening in the world currently.
What gives Homeland its unsettling edge is the sense that it's pitching you into the dark corners of an endless secret war liable to erupt into bloody chaos at any moment, on a battlefield which is beyond anybody's control.
The writers continue to steer clear of making this a dumbed down battle between good versus evil.
Claire Danes is spectacular. She has won two Primetime Emmys and two Golden Globes for her role in the series and it is more than well-deserved.
Berlin's an enticing setting for Carrie, and Homeland, having gotten back its mojo after a too-long dalliance with Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis), seems once again headed in an interesting direction.
Audience Reviews for Homeland: Season 5
Nov 01, 2020Nicht alle Aspekte des Deals mit diesem Unternehmen sind ideal
Sep 21, 2020In my opinion, this is where Homeland starts going downhill, next seasons after are a disgrace and a poor man's House of Card instead of being about spies.
Jul 18, 2020Seasons 1-4 were amazing. It feels like someone else wrote and directed season 5. It is harder to follow and introduced many different characters I didn't necessarily care about. For a show that kept be bolted straight up on the edge of my couch, this season wasn't as amazing.
May 05, 2020Homeland 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.
Apr 29, 2020A good portrayal of Berlin , but the fake number plates did get on my nerves...
Apr 26, 2020typical series about cia/fbi stuff between us vs russia
Nov 02, 2019Intense and dinamic action
Jul 18, 2017One of the best yet. Good plot and acting.
Jun 06, 2017The game has changed for Carrie Mathison. Out of the CIA and living in Berlin, Carrie is trying to start a new life but realizes now shes the one with a target on her back. As the danger intensifies, and without Saul and Quinn to rely on, one thing becomes clear shes never been at greater risk or with more to lose. (Rotten Tomatoes) * Previous Season Spoilers Ahead * Season three brought the end of the Brody era, season four brought the end of Carrie and the CIA in the Middle East era, season five introduced the new era: Carrie and the CIA in Europe. She begins the season away from the CIA and relocated in Berlin, where she works in private security for an enigmatic German billionaire (Sebastian Koch), attempts to be a good mother to her daughter, as well as having a normal relationship with her co-worker boyfriend. This season showcases how relevant and terrifying that Homeland can be. Now that the focus is on the threat of Islamist extremists in Europe, in particularly a country that has seen several attacks in the last couple of years, Germany. Although some of the ideas and actions concerning the terrorists in this season are a bit dramatic and in the realms of fantasy as there are many lines in the fire, Homeland does reveal the underbelly of mainland Europes terrorist network. Throw into the mix, high ranking betrayals, Carrie being hunted and Quinn going above and beyond the call of duty regardless of his health. Season five carries on and goes one step further than what season four started. The post-Brody shenanigans are gone, and the CIA vs The Terrorists takes centre stage. First it was in the Middle East, and now the more modern image of terrorism, very close to home. A thrilling season that culminates in typical nail-biting fashion! https://rwh92.wordpress.com/
Mar 04, 2017Homeland re-energizes itself in season five by setting up a twisty Berlin-set spy thriller that spotlights Carrie's questionable ethics more than ever.
