People who give the shows bad reviews are extremely ignorant have no taste for good television. One person said it was no 24 ... Wow comparing it to that another one got mad about calling the person a marine and not a soldier... How petty the show is extremely entertaining well thought out and if you don't like it go watch Mary Poppins or whatever stupid crap you guys watch...

Showtime has almost cornered the market for killer TV shows. If all I could watch were Homeland, Scandal, and scoot over Red Widow from ABC, and Californication, all would be well. Homeland has ab almo st constantly running suspence with even spots where you didn't see it coming. Along the lines of Scandal, Red Widow, perhaps bits of Bates Motel, and movies such as Olympus Has Fallen, Taken and Taken 2, with classic Hanna, Homeland is definitely a victory. Im curious how close to the original it is.
