I think I might be kind of shipping Carrie/Quinn.  WTH is wrong with me?

They made me pick between Homeland and Game of Thrones for Favorite Cable TV Show.  Urgh!  Which do you think I picked?

Silver lining?  NCIS has a nomination.

Knowledge gained? I learned that I don't know much about pop culture.... I was lost in some categories.

Without giving too much away Homeland continues to surprise me week after week and I find I am actually looking forward to watching it as much as if not more than NCIS.

They are two totally different shows and it would be unfair to compare the two and I love them for different reasons, but dang...Homeland is gaining favor faster than I had anticipated.

For those who want to know, I have attached TVLINE's episode recap here.

I cannot wait for next week!

 I am totally in love with this show; If I were NCIS, I might be worried.

WHAT A FREAKIN TWIST!  

This show NEVER fails to surprise me!
dragonheart: (Excited)
I have to admit that I am now officially more excited about the new season of Homeland than I am about the new season of NCIS. *ducks Gibbs slap*

yes, there are 3 of them and if they don't entice you to watch this show - I don't know what will.

I find myself cheating on my TV true love (NCIS) while we are apart.

Let me preface by saying that I am not a fan that passes hiatus by watching repeats week after week.  It is actually very rare that I rewatch an episode and when I do get the urge - I have my downloaded episodes. Tuesday nights are my own again!
 
I haven't read a fanfic (other than our tag fic) or visited a spoiler site in weeks.  I occassionaly log into tumblr, but that's mostly to see what it is going on with my newfound loves.  It's not that I am not interested in NCIS fanfic or what is going on in the NCIS fandom, because I very much am (can't see that changing) and I have several stories marked to come back to later, but right now I have other relationships that I am trying on.

I find I am falling deeper and deeper in love with my new shows: Once Upon A Time, Rizzoli & Isles, The Borgias, and Downton Abbey.  I have actually been having affairs with Homeland and Game of Thrones for awhile now.

Maybe what I love about these shows is that while I have favorite characters - I don't have favorite couples and there are definitely no ships in the harbor of any these shows.  I can just sit back and enjoy the show.

Don't get me wrong - NCIS is still my favorite and I can't imagine anyone replacing T/Z as my (one and only) ship - but sometimes being a shipper is hard and it's nice not being vested in a pairing while I watch how the show plays out week after week.  For this reason alone, I sometimes envy the folks who watch NCIS and don't ship.

I am sure I will return to my first love when new episodes start to air and I am really very excited about the premiere, but for right now I am happy being a cheater and NCIS will just have to scoot over and make room - I don't think I can be monogamous anymore.

I was blown away by Season One of Showtime's Homeland.  It really is a shame that this show is not on network TV so that more people could enjoy it.  If you get the opportunity to watch it, please give it a try - you will be in  for a rare treat. 

One word of caution: this show is NOT for the casual viewer - the twists, turns and pacing does not lend itself to hit and miss viewing - you will be lost - totally - if you don't watch every episode and pay careful attention. Which is exactly what I love about this show - you can't predict where it's going.

About the time, you think you have it figured out - another plot point opens up that discounts previous thinking.  It's layer upon layer - both in terms of the plot and the character development.  It's one story arc - not episode specific like we see with most weekly procedurals. 

Some thoughts on Season One and the finale:

Homeland finale....

I have friends who are watching now, so I won't spoil it for them.

But, I have ALOT to say about this episode...tomorrow.
dragonheart: (Default)
Has more twists & turns than the country road I live on.

Every time I think I have it "figured out", they throw me for another loop.
dragonheart: (Smiley)
Anybody else watching Showtime's Homeland series?  I am seriously loving this show and last night - OMG what a twist.

One of the things that I really like about this show is that you don't really know the characters and they keep you guessing.  Maybe, it's because the show is brand new and the characters are still developing and we are "getting to know them", but I really think they keep us guessing because they are all CIA spys - they are chameleons and I don't know if we have ever gotten more than a glimpse of the "real" people. Sometimes I think even they don't know who they really are.

If this show is still on when Game of Thrones resumes - I am going to have some serious decisions to make because they air at the same time - which to watch and which to DVR for later.

Is officially my 2nd favorite show.

I don't know what to think about Brody. It's awesome not knowing.
