When Homeland concluded it's third season, last December, many fan were concerned this phenomenal series couldn't go on without Brody (Damian Lewis), not to mention Saul Berenson's (Mandy Patinkin) retirement.
Season 4 of Homeland begins Sunday, October 5th at 9PM on Showtime. Be prepared different sides of Carrie, Saul, and Quinn (Rupert Friend).
From the trailers, we can see some thing haven't changed; Carrie is still highly driven to exceed in her personal mission to wipe out terrorism. Also unchanged is Carrie's drinking and self-medicating.
Carrie is now the CIA Chief of Station in Kabul, Carrie makes a critical decision when her counterpart in Islamabad delivers urgent intelligence on a high value target. From the trailers, we've also learned Carrie is busy working angles in Pakistan and screening the calls from her ousted mentor, Saul.
"I think he's homesick for the relevancy," Danes says.
The Carrie/Saul duo will not drift apart for too long — especially considering what Patinkin has to say about their dynamic. "Now Carrie's the boss," adds Patinkin. "In Saul's mind, Carrie was the boss from the minute that he met her."
Back in the States, Saul struggles to adjust to his new role in the private sector.
"I don't know if retirement is a word that fits with Saul Berenson," Patinkin says of his character's move into the private sector during the latest promo. "It's clearly politics, and this is the minefield we are playing in."
I'll be tuning in on Sunday to watch Claire Danes Juggles Drones, Treason and Motherhood, and decide if Homeland is still epic. I have season 3 on my DVR, and I'll re-watch a few to refresh my memory, Showtime has been re-running the series, it's available on demand on many cable systems, but not on Netfix (which is getting pretty crappy these days).

In front of a packed studio of cheering fans and million of Canadians watching at home, Arisa Cox counted the votes and named Jon Pardy, a 23 year old student from Clarenville Newfoundland this year's winner of Big Brother Canada.
Pardy competed against 15 other contestants and lived in a house on a Toronto soundstage for 71 days, where his every move was followed by cameras and watched by thousands of avid fans, to win $100,000, a $25,000 shopping spree at the Canadian home-furnishing retailer, The Brick, and a trip for two to anywhere in the world.
While living in the house, Pardy bonded with 22 year old Neda Kalantar of Vancouver, and the two of them took out their competition until it was down to just Pardy, Kalantar and Sabrina Abbate, a 25 year old hair dresser and makeup artist from Montreal. When Pardy won a competition that allowed him to select who he would take to a jury of six evicted contestants he shocked the audience by taking Abbate instead of Kalantar.
Pardy felt he had a better chance of winning the jury vote against Sabrina Abbate, and at the last minute evicted Neda Kalantar. Kalantar wasn't angry about her game partner turning on her, as she had intended to do the same to Pardy.
Six of the votes were cast by the most recently evicted houseguests, with the seventh vote going to viewers of the show in a national online vote. The jury vote this season was a landslide, with Jon defeating runner-up Abbate, who gets $20,000. There were seven votes cast, and by the fifth vote that was revealed, it already was over, with Jon ahead 4-1.
This was the second season for the Canadian production of Big Brother which airs on the Slice cable channel. Last season's finale was also a shocker when Topaz Brady voted for the wrong contestant by mistake, giving the $100,000 prize to Jillian MacLaughlin, leaving her friend Gary Levy (a.k.a. “Gary Glitter”) in second place. Big Brother hostess Arisa Cox jokingly referred to the gaff when she instructed the jury how to vote, "I cannot stress this enough the key is for the person you want to win. Does everyone understand?" The audience chuckles as the camera focuses on Topaz Brady who was in this season's audience. Cox joked, "If Topaz puts her hand up, I quit."
In addition to thousands of people watching the houseguests on live video feeds, a group of volunteer Live Feed Updaters chronicle all the daily drama in the house on this site's Big Brother Update Page. Most of the volunteers will return on June 25th to cover the activity in the Big Brother USA house.
Orange Is the New Black Renewed for a Third Season
Orange Is the New Black star Laura Prepon posted on her Instagram page that the show is coming back for a season three. Netflix announced today that our favorite prisoners will be back for a third season. The greenlight comes as the streaming service announced that “House of Cards” would be renewed for a third season before the second season came out.
The comedy-drama was created by Jenji Kohan (Weeds) and is based on the Piper Kerman memoir “Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison.” Netflix released a trailer for season two last month. Season two will premiere on June 6 on Netflix, which means I'll binge watch all 13 episodes in two nights.
