fail sauce

i'm sorry, but homeland is utter crap.

c. wanted to watch it because she'd heard good things. and claire danes still has so-called-life stock with me so i've been watching with.
it didn't show it's truest colors 'til episode six, but i could tell before then.

utter, utter crap.

Thank you.

My sister tried to defend Danes, suggesting some of us don't yet know how to see women in positions of narrative and real world authority, are thus liable to transfer our sense of this being an absurdity to the female actor's performance. A charge approaching nonfalsifiability, but who knows.

Perhaps the nicest thing I can say for Danes is that that kind of role may be new enough to actors that it's not easy to nail. Few precedents meaning fewer thespianic resources.

Least nice is that she still seems to think she's playing a high school student. That "Oh my god you guys, stop!" expression - oy.

i'm sticking with least nice right now. i guess the award makes her a drama queen.

I think Morena Baccarin looks nice with her top off. That in itself prolly not enough to carry a show though.

it would have made so much more sense in firefly. that not enough, nor inigo montoya, though a version edited down to just his scenes i would find watchable.
