A ridiculous finale for a ridiculous season
27 April 2017 | by cheroldSee all my reviews

This has been a frustrating season of Homeland. The story was generally engaging and Quinn's personal journey was fascinating, but the series seems to have given up on creating convincing events. Two or three times per episode my girlfriend or I would say, "there's no way this would happen." The writers were more concerned with hitting certain plot points than with creating anything that seemed like it would happen in the real world. Characters were inevitably too dumb, too smart, or simply didn't do what real people would do.

Like the series as a whole, America First is a mixed bag. The first part, in spite of some unlikely events, is pretty exciting. But by the second half it was all about a weird wrap-up combined with the set-up for next season.

Up until now, I've been thinking that Homeland could reset itself after a bad season, but with the finale, they locked themselves into something that looks even more ridiculous than this season.

This has been such a great series, but now it's gone off the rails. Right now I'm feeling like I won't even bother watching next season at all.
