Critic Reviews for alt.truth

The coda hits us with some top shelf TV drama.

Rupert Friend's acting was superb this week. Quinn 2.0 may be hard to watch, but the nuance and depth that Friend has brought to a character that's been practically impenetrable for four seasons is quite masterful.

Its central theme, its basic structure, is a sort of double vision, through which it becomes impossible for both characters and viewers to distinguish fact from fiction.

Tonight was a series of unexpected events, and one that leaves the pieces on the board in disarray, and Dar Adal closer to his checkmate against an oblivious queen... So let's see where the pieces move, because it's become irresistible to look away.

It's patently ridiculous to believe that Quinn could have survived all of that, but that was another in a series of great, intense action sequences this season. I'm sorry to see Astrid go.

"Alt.Truth" ... hits its overriding theme more precisely in a pair of scenes that serve as quasi-bookends, both involving O'Keefe blatantly manufacturing a swiftboat-style attack ad against Keane.

The only saving grace was seeing Carrie work with Saul again.

Well, now I'm upset. And not in a good way.

Homeland isn't beyond repair, but season six simply isn't working, in part because the plotting around the Iranian nuclear deal isn't that interesting.

The truth is the first casualty when things cut up rough and it takes a battering this week.
