The issue of the end of Homeland's second season may have been believability of character and story. The problem through two episodes of season three has been boredom.
Last week I stated that maybe the slow and steady approach could work for this show. But without the high paced action and intense conspiracy, what are we left with?
One answer is "Uh...Oh...Ah..." The second episode of season three was boring and in serious need of a pick-me-up. Personally, I'm hoping the return of Damian Lewis is exactly the shot in the arm that will turn this thing around.
