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 »

Do you still have nails left? I don’t, as I bit them all down watching last night’s episodes of “Revenge,” “Dexter,” and “Homeland.” Let’s recap! (Spoilers ahead!) Keep reading »
Sunday night is basically heaven for TV fans, with “Homeland,” “Dexter,” and “Revenge” having just returned with their new seasons. Each Monday, I’ll post a clip or two from each show, recapping the juiciest bits. If you haven’t watched, be aware that spoilers abound! Keep reading »
Listen up friends and family members: if you’re interested in seeing me for the next few months, you’ll have to pick any other day but Sunday. See, every Sunday I have a standing date with my television to watch a trifecta of my favorite shows: the new seasons of “Dexter,” “Homeland,” and “Revenge” all premiered last night and it was basically the hottest and most exciting date night my TV and I have had in months. (No offense to one of my other favorite Sunday night shows, “Breaking Bad,” but even the most exciting episode of BB can’t be expected to trump three shows, you know?) After the jump, a key scene from each premiere episode. Spoilers abound, so proceed with caution! Keep reading »
The last time Claire Danes was on television, she inspired a generation of girls to dye their hair red, listen to Frozen Embryos, and externalize their deep thoughts peppered with lots of ‘likes.’ Sixteen years and one scandalous Hollywood romance later, Claire is back on the small screen in a television show I can’t wait for—”Homeland.” Maybe this time around, she’ll inspire women to become CIA agents hiding psychological issues from her superiors?
In “Homeland,” Claire plays CIA agent Carrie Matheson, who works in counter-terrorism and is known for risky tactics. When an Iraqi source tells her that an American prisoner of war had been turned to Al Qaeda, she sets her sights on stopping his re-entry into American society. Shortly after, Marine Sergeant Nicholas Brody—who has been missing in action for eight years—is found in Afghanistan. And so she is sure he is planning a terrorist attack. Meanwhile, Sergeant Brody is traumatized from spending years as a prisoner of war, and is having a hard time readjust to his life with his family, who had presumed he was dead. What sounds so fascinating about this show is that it’s impossible to tell who is the good guy and who is the bad guy. Is Carrie Matheson right, or delusional? And is Nicholas Brody a terrorist, or a POW being harrassed by a CIA agent?
