I just happened to catch the first episode of Homeland on one of the DirecTV channels. I haven't heard anything about it, but apparently its starts Sunday on Showtime.
I was engaged in the storyline within the first five minutes. I can't remember the last time that happened with a television show. Major $#@! Winters is as good as he was in Band of Brothers, and the chick CIA agent is reasonably good, too.
Oh, and the chick who was Anna in V is in it. She gets naked.
