Homeland: Season 5

homeland-s5Spoiler alerts: I watched the first four episodes of Homeland: Season 5. I love the new focus on Berlin. I love the international cast. The sad part of this review can easily be illustrated from ratings of past seasons:

Season 1: 5 out of 5
Season 2: never rated (not sure how that happened?)
Season 3: 4 out of 5
Season 4: 3 out of 5 – “Not sure if I will continue watching.”

Season 5 bored me – characters and plots bored me. Obvious stories: Carrie talks about being nine months sober… Carrie starts drinking. Action goes from zero to 60 without any real explanation other that a tortured man mentions “the female CIA agent,” as if there is only one. The problem with many American television series is they don’t know when to end. My feeling is Homeland should have stopped when they killed Brody. 2 out of 5 for this once beloved show.
