    Default Homeland

    Just got caught up on it. Best drama I have seen since the Wire (that includes Breaking Bad and Boardwalk Empire)

    A smarter 24 - great characters, great plot.

    Has the same actor who played Winters on Band of Brothers as the main character.

    Can't recommend it enough.

    +1. Certainly is a great show, only I'd rank both The Wire and Breaking Bad ahead of it.

    maybe a little, but that's not saying much...

    Showrunners actually worked on 24 so the comparisons are there. Lately I've been finding the show more and more unbelievable but if you are willing to accept some of the implausibilities you'll see a show with great story telling and fantastic acting across the board.

    It's the best show on TV right now. Breaking Bad is better than it, but it is currently on hiatus. I would rank the best ever dramas as;

    1. The Wire
    2. Breaking Bad (may eclispe The Wire depending how they wrap the final season)
    3. Homeland
    C- Stepan J. Staal(K) Benn(K)
    LW- Lucic(K) Landeskog(K) Saad
    RW- Skinner(K) Wheeler(K) Hornquist
    D- Doughty(K) Subban(K) Ekman-Larsson(K) Carlson
    W- Yakupov(K) Tarasenko(K)
    F- M. Foligno Tlusty
    UT- Atkinson Silferberg
    G- Crawford(K) Dubnyk
    BN- Varlamov J. Bernier Voynov Pouliot C. Wilson(IR) Brouwer

    G A +/- PIM PPP SHP GWG W GAA SV SV% SHO 4 goal app min
    Yahoo H2H 12 team keeper. Keep 12 next year and beyond.

    I noticed that too. It freaked me right out.

    How can they be so concerned about Abu Nazir sneaking into America when the greatest terrorist of all has set up shop right under their noses?

    Good stuff, wow, I'll check it out when I'm caught up on the other shows.
    Bold words, but then again Breaking Bad wasn't great this season IMO, and Boardwalk Empire keeps killing off any interesting characters worth watching.

    But best show on TV right now is Sons of Anarchy. If you've watched it then you wouldn't brush it off so easily! Also, Dexter is going. I'm eight episodes behind, but it can't have declined any, has it?

    Sons of Anarchy certainly is good too. Shall we sprinkle some Game of Thrones on this good tv banter?

    That's the best show, IMO, hands down not even close. But it's on hiatus so I didn't think it counted in this thread!

    Haven't seen SOA (saw seasons 1 + 2) recently, haven't touched Game of Thrones yet. Dexter has died a slow death since season 5.

    Here's how I'd rate them (the one's I watch anyway)...

    The Wire
    Breaking Bad/Game of Thrones
    Homeland
    Walking Dead
    Sons of Anarchy
    Dexter (last season totally stole my enthusiasm for this show)

    I disagree here -- it's been up and down, but I think it's finishing strong.
    Season 1 was unbelievable.
    Season 2 was good.
    Season 3 was crap.
    Season 4 might be the best single-season of TV I've ever enjoyed.
    Season 5 was meh. Julia Stiles was bad.
    Season 6 was fantastic IMO. Not quite season 1 or 4, but I really enjoyed it.
    Season 7 thus far has been good -- moved too quick early, but it's setting up nicely. This will be the last, and I'm ready for it to wrap up, but I think it's been solid throughout.

    I've got Season 1 of Homeland waiting for Dexter to end. Don't want to get it started yet.
