Homeland co-creator Alex Gansa has described the hurt he felt when the series did not receive an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Drama Series. But with a new trailer showing Carrie Mathison and Saul Berenson back in the field, will the upcoming fourth series prove to be an improvement on the third which failed to impress critics or award panels?
Homeland, when it was first on our screen in 2011, became an instant hit. But after its third season, the reviews were becoming more mixed and less reliably in favour of the Showtime series. The nominations and awards followed suit and this year Homeland wasn't even nominated for Outstanding Drama Series at the Primetime Emmys.

Zach Braff’s character in Scrubs was an emotionally tender, physically fragile and essentially harmless person. And one gets the feeling his perennial bully, Dr. Cox, would till have plenty to say about his character in “Wish I Was Here”.

Yes, Braff and his brand of feels is back in this, the long-awaited follow up to his hyper-emotional, indie-fest, “Garden State,” which every 14-year-old girl or boy not into sports claimed was their favourite movie for at least 18 months. We’re not making that up; there were science studies.

[Spoiler Alert] The fourth episode, 'Game On,' gave us our first "Ahhh I see" moment of the season so far.
The fourth episode of hit CIA drama, Homeland, aired last night in the UK and showed many fans that the series still had the intelligence and ability to surprise us. The season so far has been criticised for being boring, annoying and displaying none of the plotline flair that brought the show to Emmy-winning prominence but Game On let the real Homeland wink from behind a mask.
Is It All Coming Together Now?
The explosive end of the second season left us with burning questions that we wanted immediately answered but the third season has shown us we're just going to have to be patient, as other characters, such as Brody's daughter Jess, are padded out.

As the second season of Homeland is about to draw to a close, the suspense has gripped a nation of avid fans. And, while everyone is on tenterhooks for the the outcome of the season, some are questioning whether it has retained the kind of calibre and complexity that made the first season such an enormous critical and commercial success.
Starting with success that doesn't so much grow as explode, means that subsequent seasons need to keep to that kind of standard. The Guardian certainly things that season two leaves much to be desired saying that the "once-intelligent show has undergone a strange transformation: morphing, Hulk-style, into a more brash, straightforward action thriller that just happens to have some politics involved." Adding that "After 10 episodes, Homeland has lost all sense of reality."
But, as WBIR argues, "Homeland risks much each week, and part of what it's risking Sunday is disappointment, from those who don't feel they're getting all the answers they want and those who don't like the answers they get." Indeed, that kind of suspense, those risks that it takes every week are precisely what has made it such a success, the nail biting, heart racing suspense that pervades every Sunday night that it airs is a prime reason, along with fantastic performances, writing and directing for its success and subsequent rewards.

Taylor Swift, Jerry Springer, Alec Baldwin and his wife Hilaria Thomas and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. were among the mass of arrivals for the 2012 Ripple of Hope Awards Dinner at The Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights in New York City.
Mandy Patinkin was the toast of the town last night (September 23rd) when he, alongside the rest of the Homeland cast won big at the Emmy Awards 2012. The Showtime program won four of the five categories it was nominated in, including Outstanding Drama Series. Patinkin didn't win any individual honours, but it was ensured that he more than any of the others was talked about on the internet last night after his co-star Clare Danes opted to give him his own unique shout out among the list of people she thanked upon winning the Outstanding Leading Actress in a Drama category.
The Associated Press reports that as Danes went through the names, she stopped specifically at Patinkin and called out "Mandy Patinkin, holla". Twitter erupted with delight at the unorthodox way of thanking her co-star, with several sights demanding that the saying became a new internet meme. Oh goody. Gawker wrote: "'Mandy Patinkin, holla' is the new Angelina Jolie's leg," whilst New York Magazine's Vulture account said: "'Mandy Patinkin, holla' is the best thank-you ever." NPR's twitter meanwhile said: "If the Internet doesn't remix 'Mandy Patinkin, holla' by tomorrow morning, it is a failure."
The other two awards that Homeland took home were for Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series, which went to Damian Lewis with the writing team taking the Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series.
