So, I watch Homeland. And I like it. Claire Danes is great. Mandy Patinkin will always be one of my favorite actors of all time. Damian Lewis is fine and everything, especially considering he plays Nicholas Brody, one of the most nonsensical characters ever to be on television. This show is fine. But that's kind of all it is and yet it's praised as one of the most ground-breaking, tightly-written dramas on television. It's absurd in a way that defies all belief. I find Game of Thrones to be far more realistic in terms of the characters' motivations and Game of Thrones is not realistic at all. I just don't understand how Homeland became a critical darling when it feels like a warmed over version of 24 and no one has ever been able to explain it to me, so, I might keep watching but only for Mandy. Always for Mandy.
