Jennifer Lawrence Has Fan Girl Moment With “Homeland”‘s Damian Lewis

SPOILER AHEAD! This exchange between Jennifer Lawrence and "Homeland" star Damian Lewis  at Saturday's SAG Awards showcases both the highest high and lowest low of TV fandom.

“Game Of Thrones,” “Breaking Bad” & “Homeland”-Inspired Baby Names Are On The Rise — But Where’s Saul?!

Parents have long taken inspiration for their child's name from pop culture. For the last few years, "Twilight"-inspired names like Bella/Isabella and Edward have been huge, as have names borrowed from famous tots like Mason (Kourtney Kardashian's son).

This “Sesame Street” Parody Of “Homeland” Is Not Baaaaad

Depending on who you ask, season three of "Homeland" is either going further off the rails than season two, or has helped the show regain the excitement and appeal of season one. But both sides would probably agree that this "Sesame Street" parody of "Homeland," called "Homelamb," is better than most of the episodes i…

“Homeland”‘s Season 3 Teaser Presents More Questions Than Answers

The second season of "Homeland" ended with quite a bang -- literally. A car bomb went off at the Vice President's wake, killing, like, loads of people, including the head of the CIA. And everyone thinks Brody (Damian Lewis) is to blame -- except Carrie (Claire Danes), who believed Brody when he told…

The British Are Coming! 9 Brits Who’ve Invaded American TV Shows

Does it shock you to know that pretty much everyone on the cast of "Homeland" is British? British people have long managed to trick hapless American audiences into believing they're one of us. They can do our accents so well, it's mindboggling. Most of the time, Americans totally blow when it comes to Brit accents (see…

Mandy Patinkin, who plays Saul Berenson on current Frisky obsession "Homeland," was in the middle of an interview on "Good Day  New York" when anchor David Price was suddenly called away.

Sunday Night Boob Tube Bonanza: How Will “Dexter” & “Homeland” End?

Sadly, this week's recap post is less of a bonanza than usual, because "The Walking Dead" is on mid-season hiatus until February, which means I'm only recapping "Homeland" and "Dexter." It's a Sunday Night Boob Tube Shindig, I suppose. And then next week, the season finales of "Dexter" and "Homeland" air, which means when "The…

Sunday Night Boob Tube Bonanza: “Dexter”‘s New Daddy Issues, An Epic Face-Off On “The Walking Dead” & A Heart-Stopping “Homeland”

Thanks to last night's episodes of "The Walking Dead" and "Homeland," my anxiety levels are way above already above-normal leves. Seriously, the majority of the recaps for each show could be summarized as simply "OMG!!!!!" However, I shall put aside my excitement and delve deeper into both these episodes, as well as last night's ho-hum…

Sunday Night Boob Tube Bonanza: A Whole Lot Of Ass-Kicking On “The Walking Dead” And “Dexter,” Plus Agent Cheekbones Is Up To Something On “Homeland”

Apologies for not recapping last Monday. I was a little off my game and then our TV-clipping service was down so I couldn't make clips and recaps are so much more funnn with clips, but yeah, I get it, I am a failure. So, before we get into this week's episodes, a brief rundown of last week's episode…

Sunday Night Boob Tube Bonanza: Brody Has Regrets & Dexter Has A Lady Problem

Sorry, a day late on the "Dexter" and "Homeland" recaps -- but I have a surprise! First of all, I'm so over "Revenge." I have a new Sunday TV love and it's called "The Walking Dead." I have devoted every waking, non-working moment to catching up on the series and with just five episodes to…

Anne Hathaway Nails Claire Danes Cry-Face In “Homeland” Spoof On “SNL”

There goes the chin! Anne Hathaway's impersonation of Claire Danes as bipolar CIA agent Carrie Mathison from "Homeland" was incredibly spot-on and ridiculously funny. But I gotta say, Bill Hader's Saul (played on the show by Mandy Patinkin) is so good, it's eerie. Watch the sketch above! JAZZ FREAKOUT!

Sunday Night Boob Tube Bonanza: The Hottest “Dexter” Scene Ever?

This week's recap post does not include "Revenge," as I went to bed at, like, 8:30 last night and haven't watched yet. However, I did watch screeners of both "Dexter" and "Homeland" earlier in the week and will recap those as usual after the jump. (And, let's face it, "Revenge" has been kind of dull…

Sunday Night Boob Tube Bonanza: Meeting Mama Clark, Closing In On Dexter & Wearing Brody Down

I feel sort of sorry for "Dexter" and "Revenge." Compared to the mind-blowing awesomeness that is "Homeland," these two otherwise fantastic shows are kinda limping behind. Don't get me wrong, I'm still enjoying both of them, but they're basically just a tasty appetizer before an incredibly exciting, satiating meal that is "Homeland." And, frankly, that…
