What makes the show popular
The American spy thriller Homeland is based on the Israeli series Prisoners of War. Broadly four factors contribute to the show’s mass appeal, i.e, the fearless storytelling, with game-changing events that make us rethink the entire narration again.
Secondly, the chemistry between Claire Danes and Damian Lewis justifies the show itself. Thirdly, the guessing game is strong. One thing that holds the audiences to the show is its obsession with questions. And, it makes the fans pursue those questions. The show puts us on the same pedestal as Carrie and we find ourselves in the midst of the plot trying to find out who’s lying.
The fourth factor is that the show reflects issues of today’s society. Some are as obvious as the perils of war and others encompass suicide, treachery, madness and innocence. Thus, the show is a concoction of emotions thereby leaving the stunned at every moment.
