Homeland returns to home video with this three-disc, 12-episode set from its second season. That brings with it certain guarantees: Bombs will blow. Terrorists will terrify. Threats of global proportions will be confronted. Angst will be felt. And, oh yes, sharks will be jumped. As the season begins, the world is in turmoil, as Israel has launched several attacks against Iran. Agent Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes, a two-time Emmy winner in the role) isn't working for the CIA, as the events of the previous season led to an emotional breakdown, "electroconvulsive" therapy, and a belief that the guy who caused all of her problems, former prisoner of war-turned-hero (and Carrie's erstwhile lover) Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis), is not in fact the terrorist convert she thought he was. But we know better. Indeed, Brody has managed to parlay his hero status into a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, the better to help carry out the nefarious designs of the bin Laden-esque terrorist Abu Nazir, who brainwashed Brody while he was a captive. Nazir's planning something, something big, and when an informant who might know what it is refuses to talk to anyone except Carrie, she's right back in the game, ready or not. What's more, we're only a third of the way through the season when Brody's cover is blown and he's taken into custody. That's when the real cat-and-mouse games begin. A somewhat reluctant terrorist in the first place (he backed out of a suicide bombing mission in the first season), will Brody come to his senses and help his country defeat the bad guys? Will his beleaguered wife (Morena Baccarin) and kids ever trust him again? Will he and Carrie reignite their relationship? And what of the budding romance between Brody's daughter Dana and the son of the vice president, who'd been considering naming Brody as his running mate in the next presidential election? Sure, Brody calling his wife while in the midst of murdering some poor sucker in the Pennsylvania woods, or managing to text Nazir while in a top-secret security meeting, warning the terrorist that he's about to be assassinated, are scenes that strain credulity, to put it mildly. But who cares? The very preposterousness of some of this show's storylines and relationships is what makes it so addictive and entertaining--with at least a couple more seasons in the offing, there are many more twists and turns to come. --Sam Graham

Product Description

Homeland makes its triumphant return after winning six Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Lead Actress for Claire Danes, Outstanding Lead Actor for Damian Lewis and Outstanding Drama Series. Marine Sgt. Nicholas Brody (Lewis) is now a U.S. congressman, and former CIA agent Carrie Mathison (Danes) has returned to civilian life. But when a new and potentially devastating terrorist threat emerges, Brody and Carrie's lives become intertwined once again and they resume their delicate dance of suspicion, deceit and desire. Delve deeper into the edge-of-your-seat excitement with the thrilling second season of this "unmissable and gloriously suspenseful" (USA Today) hit show.

SPOILER-FREE

I was worried about season 2 of Homeland; worried that they would not be able to re-capture the atmosphere and intensity of the first. In a way, I was a little right. I personally think the first season is quite a bit better, but being in one of the top 5 television dramas currently on television, it's easily a 5/5 stars still.

It's really hard to say too much without giving away spoilers. The best way to put it - things change...and they change A LOT. The whole dynamics of the show are different this season. A startling revelation is discovered early on and turns the show completely on its head. The formula is different, but for the most part, the outcomes are the same. It is still one of the shows best at creating tension and suspense and is a true CIA thriller.

CAST - the actors are superbly cast. Mandy Patinkin as Saul is incredible as ever this season, and even gets almost a whole episode dedicated to his acting talents. Claire Danes is perfect as the emotionally unstable, yet brilliant Carrie. Damian Lewis as Nicholas Brody has a lot of emotions to balance, obviously, and does it well. The supporting cast is also pretty talented. Homeland also garnered a lot of attention when they practically stole the Emmys with Best Drama, Best Actor in a Drama (Lewis) and Best Actress in a Drama (Claire Danes).

STORYLINE - things are definitely different this season. Does Carrie get her vengeance for what Brody did to her at the end of last season by telling Estes? Do her and Brody get romantic again? You'll just have to see, but things are shaken up and are very different from last season. And they happen quickly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Homeland Season 1 & 2 December 17, 2012
Format:DVD
A must see program from Season One thru Season Two finish. And the reason the complete Season Two is not yet available is because the final episode just aired 12.16.2012 at 10pm on ShowTime here on Long Island. The intensity is amazing. Try to second guess the ending of each episode. The thought process that went into developing the story line is brilliant. But since the original concept was developed in Isreal, a nation that has been under constant terrorist treat since it's inception is what makes the program so real, so authentic. And to get to watch the entire Season without delay is worth the price.

By Joe

After watching through the whole first season of Homeland, when Nicholas Brody returns home as a decorated POW who survived 8 years of captivity, I had no idea how season 2 could top the event-filled first season, but as of episode 8 it doesn't disappoint, providing plenty of action and suspense. Claire Danes and Damian Lewis are great choices for the roles of a Marine who is struggling with his allegiances and the CIA agent who happens to fall in love with her mark, and have magnetic chemistry together.

The first season included Brody's homecoming to his confused family and his involvement in a plot went wrong, as a result of which he questions his actions and must decide who to side with. In this second season, Brody's obsession with Carrie (and vice versa) is coming into play as he tries to navigate his precarious position and try to keep his family safe while at the same time do "the right thing."

The second season of the critically-acclaimed "Homeland" had a lot to live up to. The first season had a raw and frenetic intensity that was missing from television and delivered outstanding performances from it's lead cast. I know I, for one, was worried about what the second season would bring, simply because the first season was so good. I'm happy to report that my worries were unwarranted and so should anyone else's.

The thing I love about this show so much is that it keeps me guessing. Most shows on TV today follow a similar formula in which the audience can see what's going to happen long before it ever does. Any big reveals or surprises turn into moments that you wish had been presented earlier so the show could bring you something new. "Homeland" turns this idea upside down and throws it out the window. Like the season before it, this second season contains multiple big surprises and I mean QUICK. You won't have to wade through various episodes of filler for things to start happening; it starts out with a bang and doesn't let up.

Claire Danes and Damian Lewis are sensational in this show and are more than deserving of the recognition they've receives for their roles. Carrie, played by Danes, is slowly transitioning back into a life of normalcy when a familiar threat rears it's ugly head and drags her back into the world of terrorism and espionage. Brody, played flawlessly by Lewis, has a much larger role this season as he's forced to face the consequences of the decisions he's made since being rescued as a POW for eight years. Another high note from the season is Mandy Patinkin in his continued role as veteran CIA analyst Saul Berenson. I really felt like he deserved more screen time in the first season and was ecstatic that he get's just that here.
