How 'Homeland' got good again

HBO 'bombshell' documentary to tackle Scientology

How “Homeland” got good again
"Homeland" is back to being good, not great, this season, says James Poniewozik. "It’s easy to get excited when a show makes a turnaround like this, but I wouldn’t call "Homeland" great," he says. "Instead, it’s simply tried to be good, and that’s been the show’s smartest choice of all." "Homeland" became good again, he says, by focusing on its best relationship (Carrie and Saul), making Carrie competent again, picking interesting enemies and making this season about ideas.
