This Season's Most Pleasant Surprises
4. Every Minute of "Homeland"
This show sneaked up on us. We thought Claire Danes would get on our nerves (what with the ugliest crying in the world and all), but the series is so tightly written and intricately crafted that we were on the edge of our seats. The show was such an emotional roller coaster through the minds of a mentally unstable person and a potential terrorist that every week we felt a little nauseated after watching it. And we mean that in the best possible way.
