    Ho Meh Land....Title needs an extra "h"....Very boring, lazy, clichéd, badly acted first episode. (Claire Danes is such an overrated actress)

    Homeland is back! Powerful, relevant and consistently one of the best shows on TV. Claire Danes is a force of nature. A must see!!!

    It’s well built. But all its life comes from Danes. Mathison’s troubled mind has always been a metaphor for government intelligence: brilliant but unreliable, vital but dangerous. Danes’ performance animates not only the scenes but the ones she is not in, too, and every time she’s out of shot you crave her return.

    When she slips into operative mode with the ease of a worn-in suit have an extra level of tension to them: the world, dangerous as it is, is not what it was any more than she is the same woman she once was. ... She can also be cold and cruel and create stupendous debacles out of her bad decision-making. In that way, however, she's also the personification of what makes the series worth seeing to its end after nine long years, that the personal frames of mind from which a few people operate can end up determining whether million of people will live in peace or suffer under years of conflict.

    Fine, sharp opener to what already feels like a tragic climax.
