Review: HOMELAND 1.10 - Representative Brody

Sunday, 11 December 2011

"What do we know, not a lot.  But sometimes in our profession that's enough", Saul Bresnan Homeland.

I’m not really sure where to start with Homeland this week, maybe we’ll start here and see where we end up.  I suppose you can’t expect every episode to have you gripped to the screen and unlike the previous episode “Representative Brody” was not capable of that in my opinion.  It was still good don’t get me wrong but I didn’t enjoy it
as much as I usually would. 

The main story this week was the CIA’s hunt for Tom Walker, the American POW who has been turned by terrorist Abu Nazir, this leads the CIA to Al Sharani (Ramsey Faragallah), a Saudi diplomat who it would seem works for Nazir, although he claims to know nothing about Nazir’s plans and only knows that he has to contact Walker weekly.  This leads to a real good scene in which Carrie (Claire Danes) and Saul (Mandy Pantikin) lured Al Sharani to his bank where he was about to be interrogated, being a diplomat he could have just walked but not when Carrie put the pressure on.  First off she showed photo’s and threatened to expose his homosexuality to the world, he didn’t really care to much about that, Carrie had the ace though and threatened his most loved daughter with deportation back to Saudi Arabia where opportunities for her would not be so great, not only that they would also make sure that she wasn’t granted access to many other western countries where she could flourish.

The CIA are certainly putting in plenty hard work as you would expect but do we sniff a bit of corruption in Homeland, 24 was never far away from that story and the writers here seem to have the same sort of plan, after all if there wasn’t a mole then Walker would probably have been caught this week, that didn’t happen and it lead to Walker unleashing an attack in the very meeting place Al Sharani and the CIA were waiting for him, so how else could he have known, unless he now has to kill Al Sharani and that’s all he was trying to do.

There is really not that much more I can say about Homeland this week, I really should start taking more notes, oh and writing these reviews just after the show rather than four days later, but never mind this will probably go as more of a re-cap than anything else, I’ll be back on form (yeah right) next week, hopefully.
