TEN, 8.30pm

It seemed the sky was the limit for this US drama when it hit screens in 2011. Claire Danes was out­stand­ing as the bril­liant but trou­bled bipo­lar CIA agent Car­rie Mathi­son and Damian Lewis al­most as im­pres­sive as haunted hero Ni­cholas Brody. Throw in a lit­tle Mandy Patinkin and his mag­nif­i­cent beard as the sage Saul Beren­son and it seemed a sure- fire win­ner. But that all changed in sea­son two when the fo­cus turned to the leads’ weird ro­mance and Car­rie started act­ing like the stupid cheer­leader in a horror movie. Now, here we are at the sea­son three fi­nale and the char­ac­ters – and se­ries – are at another cross­roads. Will they choose the path to Home­land’s re­demp­tion?
