If you’re not caught up on “Homeland,” beware that there are spoilers ahead, i.e. in the very next sentence so stop reading now, you’ve been warned. When we last saw “Homeland”‘s Carrie Mathison, the bipolar CIA agent was mourning the death of her beloved tiny-lipped, ginger-haired, terrorist-sympathizing boyfriend Brody, expecting his child and preparing to take a new job as Station Chief in Istanbul. Fans were left wondering how the show would evolve now that it wasn’t going to be Brody-centric, and I’m afraid this teaser trailer for the fourth season doesn’t tell us much. Thankfully, we can take comfort in the knowledge that while Brody is six-feet-under, Saul Berenson and Peter Quinn still have Carrie’s back.
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. The high: meeting the star of your favorite TV show, who you’re so obsessed with that it’s almost difficult to make eye contact. The low: learning that the aforementioned star is no longer on the show because he was killed off during the season you haven’t watch yet. Way to ruin J. Law’s night, “Access Hollywood.”
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). But the names on the rise this year are mostly inspired by characters on the small screen, specifically grim and violent dramas like “Game of Thrones,” “Breaking Bad” and “Homeland.” Keep reading »
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 in season two. Baaaaah-rody is literally a wolf in sheep’s clothing! And don’t mind Saaaaaaaaul — he’s just feeling a little sheepish. As for Carrie? She’s as emotional as ever. [NYMag.com]

The producers of “Homeland” are really building suspense for the third season by posing more questions than answers in the various teaser trailers they’ve released thus far. The first featured mostly just audio, the second reminded us of where we left off (Brody on the lam! Tons of people dead! Saul is sad!), and now the third is a surreal dream-like sequence featuring our three main characters (Brody, Carrie and Saul) confronting/becoming one another. Also, Brody has a shaved head, which looks pretty hot.
