'Homeland' is firing on all cylinders this week in "I'll Fly Away," an episode that narrowly escapes becoming a parody of itself and remains a compelling, claustrophobic hour of television.

This week's episode of 'Homeland' is probably the weakest of the season so far, but the redeeming moments of intensity definitely overcompensate for the lame, soapy stuff.
"A Gettysburg Address" is probably the weakest episode of 'Homeland' season 2 so far, but that doesn't mean it's not still a solid and often engaging hour of television -- as long as it sticks with the CIA.
