Homeland With Claire Danes Premieres on Channel 10 Sunday 22 Jan 2012 @ 8.30pm

Original date of publication: January 21, 2012 | Australian TV News

The highly anticipated Showtime drama Homeland begins on Channel 10 on Sunday night at 8.30pm. It’s strong stuff starring Claire Danes as CIA agent Carrie Mathison who becomes convinced that returning war hero Nicholas Brody (played by Damian Lewis) has actually been turned whilst being held prisoner by al-Queda.

Meanwhile Brody’s wife Jessica (played by Morena Baccarin and in a move guaranteed to delight her legion of V fans gets her kit off at every opportunity!) isn’t too sure how she feels about his return as she has been having a fling with somebody else.

The action cuts between Brody and Mathison as he struggles to adjust to his return home and Mathison who has a hard time convincing anyone of her theories about Brody.

An excellent series that pulls no punches and is brilliantly acted and scripted and one that has been notching awards nominations right left and centre. Whether Ten will play fair with it when it comes to scheduling remains to be seen.
