The premise of the first season of Homeland is very intriguing and sucks the viewer into the mystery.
My question going forward was whether the show could continue with its premise past a single season. To my surprise, in its second season, Homeland opens up into a well-crafted narrative that gives it longevity without feeling forced or random. In order to achieve this, unfortunately, it sacrifices much of its believability that I loved from the first season, but at this point I was too hooked to care. And at the end of the the second season, I had the same question as with the first: how can this show continue past this season? Again Homeland answered with a surprising season finale. Homeland has quickly become one of my favorite shows!
