I want to be the daughter on Homeland.
((Messing up my hair) "Um, like, I'm clenching my back teeth together and speaking through them in a monotone... except at the end of my sentence? Where my monotone voice goes up a little?"
(Knits eyebrows together) "Um (rolls eyes upwards, stares) I, like ... wonder if I should raise my eyebrows instead of, you know, like knitting them together? I wonder what my parents would want? Because, I would like, do the opposite."
"I'm like, totally manipulating my mother into letting me fuck my disturbed boyfriend, because my mom is like, 10,000 times hotter than I'll ever be. I've gotta get sex from somewhere, right? And my mom's not getting any. So, I'm like, winning? Right?"
I love this show the best of all.
I love Clair Danes.
Suppose her diagnosis is integral thread of the plot - but really am getting tired of "Lock 'er up, Shock 'er, Let 'er go. She remembers something then does her best work."
That said, NOTHING, is more tedious or annoying in this show than the teen daughter.
Lauren Ambrose & Sarah Gilbert played the best teenagers ever. Serious attitude with punk style and some kind of reassuring smarts.
R4 - You are right about Lauren and Sara.
i like quinn and will we see broady ever?
Exactly, where has Brody been?
Oh, that scene between the daughter and her hot boyfriend marched right up to the line. I almost felt dirty after seeing that. Isn't she supposed to be 16?
"This is what happens to girls without a strong father presence," said my inner Jewish mother.
That boy is going to be bad news, very bad news, before this thing is over. He isn't locked up because people don't understand him.
I hope that boy is legal, or I crossed a moral boundary tonight (and I think I became a lesbian).
In real life she would be preggers and her life ruined in this GOP woman hating world.
Is there another Homeland thread? I couldn't find one when I did a search.
What is the point in keeping Brodie alive? He's worth $10M if they turn him in. If they don't turn him in, he's worth nothing. So why keep him alive?
Shit, I didn't realize Season 3 had started already. Gotta go catch up.
