Paranoid Style

Given how politicized our anxieties about security are after September 11, I’ll want to know where Homeland is coming before I get excited about watching it: I’m not sure I’m really up for watching Claire Danes go all Jack Bauer on terrorists. But this sneak peek of the show looks like it has a nice anxiety and pop to it, a good neutrals-hued bureaucratic look:

Danes also hasn’t been a regular on a television show, or on television at all, since My So-Called Life (she got her obligatory Law & Order appearance out of the way before that) so I’m excited to see her back in the medium.
