Firstly Happy 2012. Hope you all had a nice holiday and all that.
Secondly I've found a new show which I enjoy. It's called Homeland, my boyfriend told me all about it and so we gave it a try and after doing some reading I found out it's by the creators of 24.
It's basically about a US Marine who is captured in Afghanistan and held prisoner for 8 years. We've got out CIA officer who has been informed of an American POW who has been turned and basically the plot is about discovering if he's actually working for the Taliban or not.
It's a bit of a slow burner, but some of the tense moments are actually quite good. One thing that let's it down though is the REALLY bad acting. There are some great actors and characters in the show, but the bad ones let it down. The female lead tends to over-act about 90% of the time.
Anyway, anyone watching it? Got any good recs of TV shows to watch?
