Homeland – Seasons 1 to 7

Compelling CIA thriller following a sometime-unbalanced agent in her counter-terrorism work, in which she becomes very personally entangled – and also caught in the machinations of higher-level Machiavellian scheming by career spymasters. Famously slow in seasons 3 & 4, taken overall it’s a compelling rollercoaster and though it took a while to get through it was a bit of a “can’t put it down” watch.  I couldn’t stop thinking of Claire Danes darting about wearing angel wings in Romeo + Juliet though.  AND there’s also the lost peril factor when you’re seeing characters supposedly in life-or-death jeopardy in season 1/2, but you know they’re in season 6 & 7. But would totally recommend. And now we need to figure out how to watch season 8. 👍👍
