Showtime's 'Homeland' has become anti-American and even pro-terrorist. In response to criticism that the show was Islamophobic, its main characters have become mouthpieces, espousing ultra-liberal policies in its sixth season, writes Brandi Love in The Federalist. For the show's majority of fans, who are right of center, this season's left-leaning story lines and dialogue are a turnoff for patriots and viewers.
While Showtime's 'Homeland' has gone through an extreme shift in direction, doing so has made it one of television's most relevant shows today. Turning away from Islamic terrorists as the enemies of past seasons, this season tackles US intelligence breaches and civil liberties abuses, which are even more timely, writes Sophie Gilbert in The Atlantic. Villainizing US intelligence agencies has intensified the show as viewers wait to see if the plot will upend itself.
