Homeland Season 5 is STILL gripping and wonderful television.
Many dramas/new hype shows lose their shine after a couple of seasons (or one in the case of many) but Homeland (and mainly Claire Danes) continues to reinvent (the way Madonna and Kylie used to before they got OLD and lame) itself and become somehow relevant every year when a new season rolls around.
Homeland's debut episode for Season Five was exciting, a return to form and set the season up to be a cracker.
The extremely Rupert Friend also returns (which helps for the eye candy factor) and Miranda Otto joins the cast showing just how many Aussies are killing it on US TV right now.
Homeland is Showtimes top jewel in their programming crown. Unlike HBO with a giant like Game of Thrones Showtime is a little more modest but still has such great hits as Ray Donovan (which just aired it's superb third season), Shameless (brilliant comedy based on the UK series, returning January 2016) & Masters of Sex.
Claire Danes really is stellar and their is a reason why she has taken out so many awards, this is a series to watch, check out the short trailer below:
