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. Price had just received word that his wife was in labor, and was summoned immediately, and OH MY GAWD WAS MANDY PATINKIN EXCITED. Patinkin, who was the epitome of a verklempt Jewish dad, was so thrilled he didn’t even want to talk about “Homeland” anymore. I would like Mandy Patinkin to be there when I submit my yearly income taxes. Or when I order pickles at the deli. His unbridled joy at other people’s accomplishments is heartwarming. [HyperVocal]
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 Walking Dead” comes back, I’ll be recapping it solo. Womp womp. When does “Breaking Bad” come back again?

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 “Dexter,” after the jump!

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 episodes of “The Walking Dead,” “Dexter,” and “Homeland,” in haiku form.
“The Walking Dead.” Andrea and the Gov-nah/lovin’ each otha/Carol’s back, let’s greet Michonne!
“Dexter.” Deb blabbed her incest-y crush/Dex prefers Hannah/Isaac still wants his revenge.
“Homeland.” Brody couldn’t deal anymore/Carrie fucked some sense back/Chopper trip to see Nazir!
Got it? Okay great, now let’s move on to last night’s episodes, which I watched before a double-viewing of ”Liz & Dick” because I am loyal like that. Keep reading »

Fans of Showtime’s critically acclaimed drama “Homeland” know that the CIA-centric show can be counted on for edge-of-your-seat suspense and a wide variety of incredibly maleable Claire Danes facial expressions. For those of you have yet to start watching this incredible show, which is in its second season, allow me to present a third reason to watch: actor Rupert Friend, who plays CIA analyst Peter Quinn, or as I like to call him in the “Homeland” fan fic I am writing in my mind, “Agent Cheekbones.”
After the jump, some quick little factoids about Rupert… Keep reading »
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 go, I’ll be adding the show to my recapping roster starting next week. But for now, Sunday night’s episodes of “Dexter” and “Homeland”… Keep reading »
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!
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 anyway.) Remember: spoilers abound! Keep reading »
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 was never more true than last night… Keep reading »
