Nicholas Brody finally returns on a new episode of 'Homeland,' but things aren't going so well in his new life as a fugitive in Venezuela. With Carrie locked up in the psych ward and Brody desperately trying to survive his own version of captivity, "Tower of David" holds a mirror up to Carrie and Brody, reflecting their narratives with simplicity ... but perhaps it's all a little too plain.
The shipwreck of 'Dexter''s final season has largely since been washed away by time and the vastly superior end to 'Breaking Bad,' but dedicated fans of the Showtime serial killer drama may still be scratching their heads about the character's finale fate. We may finally have an answer to the controversial closer, as a 'Dexter' producer claims Showtime execs refused to allow the ending series finale "Remember the Monsters" had built toward.
'Homeland' continues examining the psychological fallout of the previous two seasons in this week's all-new episode. It also introduces us to Fara Sherazi, a young middle-eastern CIA expert analyst who comes in to help Saul track the money back to the mysterious Magician mentioned in last week's premiere. There's not a whole lot of action this week, unless you count Carrie's continued meltdown.
The internet and the world at large may have been somewhat preoccupied last night with a little ol' AMC series finale (10.3 million viewers, bitch!), but thankfully Showtime is a good sport with its 'Homeland' season 3 and 'Masters of Sex' premieres. While the latter had earlier made its way online, the entirety of 'Homeland' season 3 premiere "Tin Man Is Down" has found its way on demand for those in need of a post-'Breaking Bad' high.
The season 3 premiere of 'Homeland' isn't so much the aftermath of the attack on Langley that killed 219 people (including David Estes, leaving Saul in charge of the CIA) -- it's nuclear fallout. Carrie is the subject of an aggressive, closed-door senate investigation, and Brody's family is falling to pieces without him. With a fervent manhunt for the missing congressman and suspected terrorist underway, we follow Carrie, Saul, and the Brody family as they try to readjust to life after Langley.
Showtime may have put one of its most iconic series to pasture last night (for good, we hope), but will soon bounce right back with next Sunday's premiere of 'Homeland' season 3 and original drama 'Masters of Sex.' The Michael Sheen-Lizzy Caplan period drama has earned rave reviews across the board thus far, but why not see for yourself in two brand new sneak peeks?
'Dexter''s disappointing final hour "Remember the Monsters" brought the series to an ultimate close this past Sunday, leaving an open-ended resolve that producers claim hadn't been written any other way. And while the final season of the Showtime serial killer hit has brought with it an array of criticism, none prove so biting as former showrunner Clyde Phillips, who himself had a drastically different ending in mind for the Bay Harbor Butcher.
For better or worse (much, much worse), 'Dexter' has finally carved its last cheek with this past Sunday's series finale, "Remember the Monsters?," bringing the Showtime serial killer series to a close after eight long years, the latter of which many fans proclaim to have taken a rather steep nosedive. And while we've had our own issues with the current season, producers Sara Colleton and Scott Buck stepped up to answer lingering questions, defend Dexter's ultimate fate, and discuss the future of the troubled series.
Last night saw Showtime saying goodbye to two of its main attractions, pulling the plug on 'Dexter' permanently (we hope) while 'Ray Donovan' said goodnight until 2014. And even though acclaimed Emmy-winner 'Homeland' and the buzzworthy 'Masters of Sex' will kick off in less than a week's time, the cable network delivered our first sneak peek of 2014 "psychosexual horror thriller" 'Penny Dreadful.'
‘Dexter’ season 8 slices up the 12th and final episode of its closing year with “Remember the Monsters?” as Dexter's escape with Hannah becomes complicated by Deb's injuries and Elway's pursuit, while Saxon (Darri Ingolfsson) makes one final attempt to have Dexter pay.
Last week’s episode, “Monkey in a Box,” saw Dexter racing against the clock to find Saxon while Deb tried to keep authorities off Hannah’s trail, before her brother and Hannah could make their getaway together. So how does “Remember the Monsters?” close out the 8th and final season, ultimately the series?
