I just spent the last couple of months catching up on the HBO series Homeland.
We were on a mission to get current, so big daddy & I hunkered down each night glued to the set watching Nick Brody in action.
I still can't get over the fact that he is British and not American!
His accent is impeccable.
Also that he is the exact same age as I am...that really freaked me out.
He seems so much more....well...older than me.

Anyhow the show has won 6 Emmy Awards and they are well deserved.
Claire Danes is spectacular as well as Mandy Patinkin.
Love him.
In fact the entire cast is great.
It's an edge-of-your-seat (or in my case, sofa) kind of series.
It is also apparently Obama's favourite show.
And if the president of the United states takes the time to watch a T.V. show it's got to be good. Right?

Anyhow I can't wait until September- Season 3 to begin.
Then again, might hold off and do a viewing marathon like we tend to do with most HBO series.
I hate having to wait each week to see what happens.
I'm not good when it comes to patience and having to wait.

Thinking about starting House of Cards with Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright next.
Or Downton Abbey.
Then again, Mad Men and Mr. Selfridge looks pretty promising too.

So much for my New Year's resolution to cut down of my television viewing....

oh and I snapped that image while on the highway in California last fall.
now that's not something you see everyday up here in the great white north.

We've just started watching it - some station up here (I think it's Bravo?) has just started showing Season 1 on a weekly basis. I think we're about three or four episodes in now, and I can totally testify that the hype is truth. Right from the first episode, we were hooked - I can't wait from week to week anymore. The acting is amazing, the writing is so tight, and the images are really sticking with me week to week.

GAH, when will Sunday get here again?

I started watching Homeland recently, and had to stop. I can only handle so much discomfort in my livingroom.

And you look way younger than Brody

Excellent show! We whipped through both seasons. Another amazing series..Breaking Bad. Very gritty, but funny and SO well done.
