Nope. Next.January 17, 2016 at 6:27 am #367128
For the most of it, not even comparable with season 4. Otto’s arc is what saved it.January 17, 2016 at 7:35 am #367129
Ranking it third, behind season 4 and 1 and just in front of 2 before the long drop to 3. Although had it not been for Miranda Otto’s sensational performance I would push it down further. I just didn’t buy Quinn’s arc, Carrie’s relationships with… oh I unsurprisingly forgot their names, and the underdeveloped hacker/prostitute plot. The penultimate episode was an absolute masterpiece by itself though.

^ Agreed on rankings. Season 5 was very solid – not rising to the heights of Season 4, but still very solid. Danes and Otto were fantastic.
1. Season 4 (MVP – Danes)
2. Season 1 (MVP – Danes)
3. Season 5 (MVP – Otto)
4. Season 2 (MVP – Patinkin)
5. Season 3 (MVP – Danes)

I would agree, but the season 4 MVP was Laila Robins as Martha Boyd- a performance so subtle yet captivating (clearly too subtle for any significant nominations).

I think your liking of Season 5 depends on what type of Homeland you like.
It’s definitely infinitely more quiet and restrained than the wild Season 4, which I was a huge fan of. So Season 5 wasn’t really to my liking.
Season 1 is obviously Homeland’s best season. Followed by Seasons 4, 2 and 3.
Curious what the NYC-set 6th season will bring!January 19, 2016 at 12:17 pm #367134
One of the best seasons of the show. Emmy worthy.January 19, 2016 at 1:24 pm #367135
1. Season four (great)
2. Season one (great)
3. Season two (good)
4. Season five (pretty good)
5. Season three (flawed, but certainly better than average)
None of those suck.January 24, 2016 at 12:19 pm #367136
Interesting, I actually didn’t much care for Season 4, at least not the first half or so. I thought Season 5 was a significant step-up, with marvelous turns by Otto and Patinkin (who hopefully returns to Best Supporting Actor at the Emmys). I also, for what it’s worth, actually consider Season 3 its best outing thus far.January 24, 2016 at 9:21 pm #367137
Watchable, rarely embarrasing. It never reached the heights of season one, the first half of season two or a few choice episodes from season four. It also was never as cringe-worthy as season two’s second half or season three’s first half. Not suckie, just dawdling and mostly uninspired.
