Want To Watch Showtime’s HOMELAND, From The Creators Of 24 And Likely Autumn’s Best New Hourlong, Right Now??
“Homeland” comes to us from Howard Gordon, Alex Sansa and Chip Johansson, all longtime writer-producers on “24.” It stars Claire Danes (“Terminator 3,” “Temple Grandin”), Morena Baccarin (“Firefly,” “V”), Damian Lewis (“Band of Brothers,” “Life”) and the great Mandy Patinkin (“Chicago Hope,” “Dead Like Me,” “Criminal Minds”).
It’s about a hot CIA analyst who risks everything trying to prove that an American POW who spent eight years in captivity in Iraq is The Manchurian Candidate.
Hitfix has it online right now. I watched it; it’s better than any other hourlong pilot I’ve seen this season. It’s a TV-14 version, which means they blur out parts of Baccarin’s spectacular body and bleep out all the “fucks.” But even if you don’t subscribe to Showtime you can watch the whole thing here.
The dirty version hits Showtime Oct. 2.

Always liked this actress, maybe because I want to spank her so damn bad.

Give him four minutes and a pair of pliers and he'd get to the bottom of this.
Sept. 17, 2011, 7:14 p.m. CST
I still feel sad for him...
Sept. 17, 2011, 7:20 p.m. CST
May not go anywhere, but I'm a fan of Danes and Patinkin. Looks like we'll get at least ONE good new show this year...
Sept. 17, 2011, 8:15 p.m. CST
solid piece of crap that is. why would alqaeda need to brainwash someone when they can pretty much do that with their islamic preaching?? you dont have to be a POW to get affected. Plus what is the worse that he can do that doesnt already happen on a daily basis? bshhhh. its a dead end story, plus ever heard of SALT? that was more interesting, this on the other buttcheek sounds more like talky talky fear mongoring, you know, the scenes in 24 that made you want to sleep.

I'm willing to give a show with a good cast like this a chance, especially since there's really nothing else new coming out this fall that has me interested, besides that new Michael Emerson show, and even that I'm mainly just checking out because of Emerson
Sept. 17, 2011, 9:39 p.m. CST
we get some baccarin nudity? I already forgot the entire premise, just let me watch it NOW THX
Sept. 17, 2011, 9:56 p.m. CST
after seeing the pilot I'm sold. good television is hard to come by nowadays but I'll add this to the dvr alongside Sons of Anarchy and Fringe.
Sept. 17, 2011, 11:05 p.m. CST
I'll wait to see tits.
Sept. 17, 2011, 11:11 p.m. CST
I will wait until then. No need for watching blurry nonsense. That will be a dream come true.

hate fucking your wife after 8 years of being held captive! i know you nerds love her, but claires acting in a few scenes is worse than shit.
Sept. 18, 2011, 5:38 a.m. CST
why is it when the lead character is a woman they need to show her daily routine like when she comes in and strips and wipes her snatch with a rag(!) and brushes her teeth and shit, its this to show shes just a regular complicated woman juggling career and personal life or something? meh. also, wtf happened to claire danes, she used to be a peach.
Sept. 18, 2011, 5:45 a.m. CST
and she has small boobies. that is all.
Sept. 18, 2011, 10:13 a.m. CST
wish they continued that show so nerds get to see how dumb it really was instead of taking it away from them mid-blowjob.

More unprofessional than Charlie Sheen and he keeps getting hired.
Sept. 18, 2011, 6:53 p.m. CST
Looked it up on IMDB just to make sure my mind wasn't playing tricks on me, got the confirmation and entered it in my top 10 of best random channel surfing moments ever. P.S. It was this: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1079980/
Sept. 18, 2011, 6:57 p.m. CST
its to show you how committed and no nonsense she is. it was weird.
Sept. 18, 2011, 8:24 p.m. CST
But I wish Showtime had never canned Sleeper Cell.
Sept. 18, 2011, 10:27 p.m. CST
so i'll wait for it to show up on showtime.

Someone said The Wire should have won a Peabody or a Pulitzer. It did win a Peabody early on. But I gotta say, Boardwalk Empire and The Good Wife were the only shows I didn't want to see win. Love the others in the drama category. Boardwalk might be the most overrated tv show I have ever seen. I love Scorcese, mob shows, and slow developing serials. But that show is just not entertaining. Scorcese won on name, not on quality.

Google search shows nothing of a Bob Blog hosting an uncensored pilot. Back up your sweet ad wonderful claims with a link, if you would.
Sept. 19, 2011, 12:03 p.m. CST
http://bit.ly/sex i saw it and i was like is it really her? but apparently back in firefly days she didnt think twice about sex tapes.

....of a show, 31 mins in, the wife has gone for a piss, so let me say, so far, so VERY good. Homeland, not the pissing. SOLID cast, i mean really solid. If anything, i thought baccarin would be the weak link, but she's great! Finally a decent role for her. I did think she was slumming it somewhat with "V". I'm actually itching to watch some more of this, my faith in TV might be restored! hell, i might even watch that zoey deschanel thing now!
Sept. 19, 2011, 9:14 p.m. CST
not sure how to link on here.. google "bob blogspot tv" and it should come up first link.. the website is called "bob releases" or some such
Sept. 19, 2011, 10:44 p.m. CST
Promising premise: a Manchurian Candidate for our age. Lewis is a wonderfully disciplined actor, and he'll make this whole thing work - but I stopped counting the amount of amateur over-emote line readings from Danes. Wtf happened to her? OK, she's driven, on anti-psychotics, obsessed...but Jesus does she have to be so shrill and one note? Rein it in, girl. Whoever mentioned Sleeper Cell - I concur, that was a great ride that ended somewhat disappointingly.
Sept. 20, 2011, 4:37 p.m. CST
Mandy Patinkin got top billing in a movie and walked away from it about a third of the way through! FACT!
