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
