“Homeland” wraps up controversial 3rd season

Episode

Spoiler Alert!! Don’t read on if you haven’t watched the “Homeland” Season 3 Finale!!

Season 3 of “Homeland” has wrapped up, and many critics and fans haven’t been kind to the show. That’s not suprising, as it was hard to imagine an end to the Carrie/Brody storyline that would make all fans happy. That said, the entire season was a bit of a letdown after the first two spectacular seasons. The writers in one sense should be applauded for coming up with a plot centered on Iran that mirrored some of the events we’re seeing unfold in real life. Still, the entire season seemed forced. It’s as if they faced the “what’s next?” dilemma at the end of season 2. They had to create an entirely new drama and story centered around Brody being on the run. They also tried to keep Dana Brody and the rest of his family as part of the story, but that seemed a bit forced as well.

“Homeland” may be one of those shows that needs to have a very limited run.
