I have been watching Homeland. The story is basically pretty good.

What gets me is the producers attention to detail, for instance:

Carrie has a whole bunch of work documents at home? That would get her fired.
Carrie and Saul discuss Abu Nazir in the corridor of a hospital. I dont think so!
Their questioning methods are pretty lame.
Going to the CEO of a company and announcing you work for the CIA...duh!

The producers have got a good story line here, but need to make certain aspects surrounding the CIA more believable!

Anyone else noticed this?

I think it is pretty good, but some things are a bit predictable. It is TV so they perhaps don't have the budget to be 100% correct factually. But they are a lot more accurate than some of the old TV shows .

wait till you have seen the whole series regarding things like the documents being at her home :-)




When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

I'm with freitasm...lost interest very early on. Have them recorded in TiVo but doubt I will waste my time playing catch up.

Yes have seen the whole series on... Let's say DVD from the USA, or something.
Quite enjoyed it! Good production value, good script and requisite twists etc,

Cheers,
Joseph

Just as painful as Prison Break.

As someone who has a relative who's been through the prison system, and has visited multiple different prisons in NZ multiple times, the crap that Prison Break showed was just criminal.

But I thought everything on TV was real!!!!

Come on, theres always going to be little things in a work of fiction to make the "story" work as opposed to real life. Just be glad they didn't "CSI" it.

I'd only be watching for Claire Danes/Gwyneth Paltrow/Sarah Roemer (chick off the event) as they are all the same person.

That's nothing - Detective Chief Inspector Barnaby talks his cases over with his wife!

Watch Touch, which starts this Sunday at 8:30pm on TV 3, as it looks like it could be a pretty good show.
As the 24 "idol" in it :)

watched it all but like 24 better. At least you get a better form of closure in a 24 series (without trying to spoil what happens). I reckon Jack Bauer is a cousin of Chuck Norris :)
