Re: good TV series recomendations..... ?

Ok.. based on so many recommendations in this thread so I watched first 4 episodes Homeland .. it seems ok so far .. although now i know that i will watch the whole series now.. but I think so far I am finding it to be moving on a very slow pace.. but the storyline seems to be interesting enough.. Also, I think the Carrie character is a little overdo ..or the actress seems to be overacting while portraying the over obsessed CIA agent .. does anyone agree with me .. ??

I somehow compared it to 24 (I have managed to watch all the seasons), 24 was a bit Bond Bond types.. everything revolving around one character.. but it was happening .. moving really fast .. something or the other ..or probably because "All the events occurred in real time". Lol
If you think the Carrie character is overdone now, just wait until the end of season 1. Also, go on Youtube and look at Anne Hatheways spoof of Carrie on Saturday Night Live. It was hilarious. Homeland is really, really good. I thought season 2 was even better than Season 1. It doest take a long time to unwind the story but when it does, its a doozy.

The only thing is, you will hate the girl who plays Brodys daughter. Not for anything she does (not a spoiler) but just the way she acts. She has a large role in Season 2, but is absolutely awful!
