Homeland, “To Be or Not To Be.” Is that the question?

After reading everything about the program from all over the internet,  one must conclude the story board of “Homeland” is drawing from current events to create characters of interest. The story is really about the human drama weaved into thriller episodes, schizo-mania and adulterous love affairs.

So, to say Bi-polar Carrie might wake up from a “shock treatment” and find season 2 was all a bad dream that hasn’t happened yet. Or better yet, even if Carrie can clear the name of her lover, Nicholas Brody, the CIA will NOT recant their accusation against Brody knowing that Brody is what he is, because he is more useful as a fugitive than an honest man.

Damian was signed on for 7 seasons, (2 down, working on 3 and 4 to go.)  But, Damian Lewis maintains his role of Brody, writers “can kill me off any time they want” (do they have something in mind?)


The public contention is that the story of Homeland is based on serious script with serious characters as the original story for season 1 suggested. That being the case then, the characters and story line need to depicted as real. Just like people who work those kinds of jobs in real life would really be like and do. Just like a cop show is watched by cops, “Homeland” is watched by Homeland Security.  Supposition contends that, the show has a better chance of staying on the air, because it is filled with holes and alternate reality, rather than becoming more like a dramatized documentary.

Damian’s manic role of “Keane” prompted writers and producers to select him for the role of Brody.  But it is Damian’s sensuality that has surmounted the character intent of Brody and has audiences thronging for more.

That unexpected twist of drama, is what turned season 1 into season 2, which by the way, is why Damian Lewis was nominated and won the Emmy. In reality, it doesn’t seem possible for Brody to continue into season three and yet he will, in fact he must.  Filming begins in May 2013 

*(new update – Zero Dark Thirty is getting slammed because of it’s depiction that The CIA used torture. The movie is “A chronicle of the decade-long hunt for al-Qaeda terrorist leader Osama bin Laden after the September 2001 attacks, and his death at the hands of the Navy S.E.A.L. Team 6 in May, 2011”) – added Jan 3, 2013


About victory2glory

I work at home, reviewing group discussion from the field of science to religion and politics. There is no Holy Grail hidden that the eye can not see. We are all people and I write about that. Holding a cross current view on life, I give perspective on the associated news media and interests that affect the world we live in. Blogging is meant to be informative and creative. That's what I bring to the plate: concerning the hottest talent found on Internet media. I also cover international Films and Cinematography including but not limited to the latest in science and science fiction. Looking at the brighter side of life, I also write to promote vision and focus on the world we live in with spiritual perspective. My purpose is to find meaning and bring out the humorous side of the issues that seem so serious in the world. Not that these issues aren't important. But, rather to give perspective to the reader about the world we live in. I am originally from West Coast but have been living in the Midwest of these United States, for the last 37 years. I have had opportunity to travel extensively on the North American Continent. Have met hundreds of people from various social, political and religious backgrounds, all having opinions and strategies on how to live life. Having gained some knowledge and sensibility of the human condition, gives for greater depth of understanding the human spirit. So whether inspiration comes from the internet or a good book. It's all relative because it is about people. Observations on how people conduct their lives, not literally of course, but in keeping with what other people think is socially acceptable, politically correct or conceived in a pool of creative ethics. What is right for one, may not be right for all but then we are all different. I give my prospectus on what makes up our world. (see some of my blogs) Writing has always been therapeutic, in answer to the world evolving around me. I don't claim to be an expert on much of any particular set of rules or circumstances regarding it, except to express how I have experienced forgiveness of man and the grace of God in this evolving culture. To me, writing was just a way to put life in perspective. Facts always evidences against the agony of ignorance and humor combats the mundane and impossible situations we get ourselves into. Being shy most of my life, I was continually being pointed out as the 'ring leader'. I wasn't leading anyone because I stopped them from following me. Today having extended my education to a broader view of how the world functions among it's people, I have started to share my collection of expressions to those who have a heart to listen and a mind to comprehend. Our body is water, dirt and sex. Our thinking controls what we do and how we respect it. We are all made up of the same stuff. But, it is how we perceive who and what we are, that makes all the difference. I keep an open mind.
