Homeland Season Four

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment sent me season four of Homeland for review on my movie blog. I watched the first three seasons earlier in the year. I love the show. The episodes are fast paced and the main character (Carrie Mathison) is really interesting. Carrie Mathison, who is played by Claire Danes, is brilliant. But she also does stupid things sometimes. And it doesn’t help that she has a bipolar disorder. I love her, but at times I also want to strangle her. I think that’s one of the reasons I love this show. The main character is basically a good person, but she’s flawed like the rest of us. If you love the first three seasons, you will also love season four. I know I did. Homeland: Season is available now on DVD and Blu-ray.

I don’t want to give too much away about season four, so I’m just going to mention a few things. First, the fourth season starts off with Carrie as CIA Station Chief in Afghanistan. She authorizes a strike and innocents are killed. As a result, she’s recalled and is essentially forced to deal with her baby daughter. From what I could see, Carrie isn’t the mother type. Big surprise. She rarely interacts with her child and doesn’t seem to care about her. In fact, Carrie’s sister spends the most time with the infant and is more of a mother than an aunt.

Season four of Homeland features 12 episodes. According to the press material, the Blu-ray (three discs) and DVD (four discs) has a runtime of 650 minutes. BTW, Homeland has been nominated for four Emmy Awards including Outstanding Drama Series.

Main Characters in Homeland Season 4

  • Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes), a CIA intelligence officer assigned to the Counterterrorism Center
  • Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin), former CIA’s Middle-East Division Chief and interim Director, and Carrie’s old boss and mentor
  • Peter Quinn (Rupert Friend), a CIA SAD/SOG (black ops) operative
  • Fara Sherazi (Nazanin Boniadi), an intelligent, young, and professional Persian analyst
  • Martha Boyd (Laila Robins), the US ambassador to the Islamic Republic of Pakistan
  • Andrew Lockhart (Tracy Letts), the new director of the CIA

About Homeland Season Four

Gripping suspense escalates to a fever pitch in the brilliantly reinvented fourth season of this Emmy Award-winning thriller. In her new role as a CIA station chief, Carrie (Emmy winner Claire Danes) convinces Saul (Emmy nominee Mandy Patinkin) and Quinn to help her hunt down one of the world’s most dangerous terrorists. But when Carrie recruits a young Pakistani as an asset, the lines between right and wrong blur and the operation spins out of control. Facing unclear loyalties at every turn, Carrie must take extreme measures and risk everything to protect her country.
