Homeland


I've been sleeping late this past few days because of the drama series Homeland. It's one of the most engaging series I've seen in a long time (I've seen a lot). I'm not sure though if it's gonna appeal to some televiewers because of its controversial plot which is terrorism. But I think it's very relevant because we're living in dangerous times and watching a series such as this one makes us more aware. I don't really know how much is based on facts and how much is fiction but you're free to form your own opinions once you start watching Homeland. You see, it shows both sides of the story, that of the Moslem terrorists' and that of the US government. I won't go into details anymore so you guys would be interested enough to watch it.

I know most Filipinos hate Claire Danes because of the nasty things she said about the Philippines when she was here shooting Brokedown Palace. But I must say that she's one heck of an actress. Her acting is one of the reasons why Homeland is so effective. Another reason to watch it is Damian Lewis, who I totally love. He's such a good actor (very believable and good looking too).

Thanks for your recommendation. I haven't heard about this show, but it sounds interesting. And oh, who would forget that remark from Claire Danes?! Haha.

I like Claire Danes too. I think she is one fine actress of her generation. And I don't hate her for any comment she made about Manila. We should have taken itas constructive criticism =)

Hmmm. I haven't heard all those nasty things from Claire Danes. But it is better that way. I might go OA again. Lol.

I'm not really into American series since they tend to run until several seasons! I get bored quickly. :) The plot for this seems interesting though. :)

I got hooked on the Homeland the week it came out. Loved it! Can't wait for the next installment.

Claire said...

I haven't heard of this one. I know she is very remarkable. Haha!

I don't hate her at all :) She just said what she noticed about our country.. Just like Kero, her comment should be taken as a constructive criticism. :)
