Winter is now officially drawing near, the days are short and the nights are long. When not curling up with a good book, why not try some of our DVD TV series to while the evenings away?
One of our favorites these days is the gripping Showtime series Homeland, with Damian Lewis of Band of Brothers fame and Claire Danes. He is the Marine returning home from Iraq after years of captivity, she is the CIA operative who debriefs him, suspects him and falls in love with him.
The story has tangled itself into a fine, sprawling thriller over the last three years—we have two seasons on DVD and the third is still playing. While some have complained about Danes’ quivering chin and bipolar issues, the series has proved itself as a true cliffhanger with a great supporting cast. Try it.
When you’ve caught up with that, try one of the other newer series, like Scandal, starring the super-popular Kerry Washington—it’s a hit. And remember the final seasons on our beloved Breaking Bad and Dexter will be out on DVD before you know it. Now, grab your remote and VIEW!
