    I figured Id check it out since Bobby Axelrod and Gideon are in it. Did you guys like Homeland?

    So far I like it but im early in season 1. Does it hold up over time?

    S1 is a goat season. S2 is a drop off. S3 is an EXTREME drop off. But S4-7 are all excellent

    The main character is quite a slut and headcase. The series gets better after the first few seasons. I haven't watched the latest ones.

    Homeland is a terrific show that manages to maintain smart storylines for 7 seasons. I generally try to avoid binging shows, but Homeland is a show that becomes addictive in the last 5 episodes with all the twists and turns. I see some people criticizing season 3, but that one is fantastic to me. If anything, season 1 is the weakest because things are just getting started.

    Wait until Season 6. It starts slow and feels uninteresting for the first 4 episodes or so, but once the big twist happens, it's the most exciting season. I also love the season in Pakistan, Season 4 I think. Those seasons are the most thrilling.

    7 seasons in and still can’t remember to pick up her damn kid from school.

    Quinn is the best character.

    Seasons 1-3 are exceptional imo. But then the direction changes. 4 was epic, but not seen any since.

    The twist at the end of 3 was actually ruined by a friend for me so that'll always annoy me. So great though.

    And yes, Quinn is superb.

    Did Quinn end up killing the guy
    who's like the opposite of Saul? (Edit: nevermind, he's still alive in Season 7)

    Carrie's sis is really good looking.

    Too many scenes of the crazy lady just staring at the wall. Who cares.

    Saul is a decent character at least.

    I started watching Season 7 and Carrie gets her computer malware locked/encrypted and ends up showing the hacker her naked titties, but us viewers don't get to see them.

    Finished watching Season 7. Not bad.

    One thing's for sure: Claire Danes is really good at making a scary crazy monster face. You don't want to run into her in the dark late at night.

    It’s still on?

    I can’t remember the last season I saw. I cancelled cable a year ago.

    Loved Quinn’s character.

    I’d say more but it would be major spoiler for Joe joe.

    I believe the final season (8th) starts in early Feb 2020. Spectrum Showtime on Demand has only s8 e1-5, but the Spectrum app has the whole season.
