Due mainly to its two equally damaged lead characters, this American reboot of an Israeli show is unexpectedly chilling. When a US marine, missing in action and presumed dead, is brought home alive after a raid on an Iraqi terrorist stronghold, he is celebrated as a war hero. That is, until a lone CIA analyst and her aging spyhandler start to suspect he may have been “turned’ by al-Qaeda. With more red herrings than your local fish markets and a plot that thickens quicker than corn powder in coagulated blood, the skulduggery, political intrigue and cold-blooded murders in this stellar spy series will keep you guessing at every turn. Brilliant. For every purchase of HOMELAND Season One on DVD, Twentieth Century Fox will donate $1 to Legacy (for a nominated period), in support of their vital work helping the families of Australian servicemen and women.
