Homeland on Showtime

Anyone watching it? pretty good.
No idea if it's unrealistic from a CIA agents POV but it leaves me anxious for the next episode.

ABOUT THE SERIES

Who's the hero – who's the threat? When MIA Marine Sgt. Nicholas Brody returns home to a hero's welcome after eight years in enemy confinement, brilliant but volatile CIA agent Carrie Mathison isn't buying his story. She believes that Brody has been turned and is now working for Al Qaeda. What follows is a dangerous game of cat and mouse with nothing short of American national security at stake. Claire Danes, Damian Lewis and Mandy Patankin star in the provocative, suspenseful new Showtime Original Series HOMELAND, from Executive Producers of 24.

Been watching it from the start. It's entertaining, which is why I watch TV. If I want realistic I just watch my day-to-day life.

It's entertaining and not too over the top, so far.
I'm hooked.

As to what really matters...
Morena Baccarin, who has been in Stargate SG1, V, and Firefly, is naked in this show.

I recorded it on the DVR last night. Did they happen to say what his job was when he was in the Corps? I saw him sporting gold wings in the previews.

Ok, was he a Sgt when he went MIA and they pinned some GySgt chevrons on him upon his return AND still call him Sgt ? The show is addicting and I am hooked but every time they mention Sgt. Brody...I wanna choke myself hahahaha.

I'm enjoying the show and i think I guessed a twist that is yet to be revealed.

Text below is in white to not spoil anything.
Highlight to read....
I wonder if Mandy Patankin's character (Saul) is the leak and Brody's handler.
It would explain why he kept the investigation into Brody so quiet and why he ended it.
It would also explain that little hiccup on his first polygraph.
Maybe he passed the razor.

I've been watching the series also and enjoy it thoroughly. I have to admit though - I'd think the CIA is smart enough to make sure there's no blind spots in the interrogation room...multiple cams covering different angles?

B5R might be onto something...who else could have warned the professor on his way home that he was being tailed??? I don't see how Brody could've done it...

OK, I'm confused.

I guess the end of the last episode is to show that (highlight to see spoiler):

Both Walker AND Brody were turned and working with Nasir? But Brody did not know about Walker and hence jumped boat?

Yes. It seems like he was taking the slow lay low approach after all, but all bets are off now that the Walker issue is out.
