I don't want to go overboard...

...about the double episode launch of Showtime's exceptional "Homeland" Season 4, but it required extra effort on my part to keep my pounding heart out of my throat.

Terrific story-telling!

And that was watching the combined 97 minutes of "The Drone Queen" and "Trylon and Perisphere." on Show­time On Demand!

(In truth, between #1 guilty pleasure "The Good Wife" and the American League Division series, I in­advertantly punted the premiere bloc last evening.)

And yes, one could accurately say that the series seems "ripped from today's headlines," as the old Hollywood flacks liked to blurb.

For thems what are new to the series, this week's airings are a perfect place to pick it up... they come with a clean slate and are not at all dependent on the previous seasons for narrative continuity.
