Pointless Nonsense

Posted in tv by Bill on September 14, 2011

Showtime’s Homeland is online here and it’s very good. It’s censored, for nudity (mostly man ass, but also some Morena Baccarin toplessness, of which I approve), language, and even sex sounds. But it doesn’t really take away from the enjoyment of it. It stars Claire Danes, the redheaded guy from Band of Brothers/Life, the aforementioned Baccarin, Mandy Patinkin, and this guy, who’s the latest in a string of black British actors to have a choice role in American TV. Which is crazy, since there’s like 100 times more black people in the US than in the UK. I have no problem with Idris Elba getting parts, because he’s amazing, but neither this guy nor Lennie James can do convincing American accents.

Anyway, it’s a great high concept sorta thing, which I won’t spoil, but it looks like a slow burn, non-ridiculous version of 24. And unfortunately the show doesn’t start until October, so it’ll be about a month until the next episode.
