Last week three beers turned into five, five turned into seven, lack of beers eight and nine forced me into a glass of merlot (just awful) and the unexpected drunkenness lead to me call Comcast to order Showtime to catch the last 2/3 of Event Horizon. In any case, Event Horizon is not nearly as scary as I remember, but oooohhhh boy, Showtime can put together a drama. I have been strictly an HBO guy, and while I still maintain that there is nothing on TV as good as Game of Thrones, Homeland may just have slid past Boardwalk Empire in the must see category. For those of you looking for some good watching material, Homeland is a middle east-war-terrorist-CIA drama without the slightest hint on political agenda. Fantastic cast, including Gideon from criminal minds who is flat out awesome), many twists and turns but none contrived. Only through episode five and I'm sure there is a lot to come, but I'm all in. Give it a look if you have Showtime, or if you are intoxicated enough to order it anytime soon.
