I am back! Hope you all had/have a great summer!

Rupert's character in the driver's seat. Possible bullet hole in the glass. Season finale. Déjà vu all over again.

It’s not a bullet hole.

Gosh, I really do love Mandy Patinkin. His moment to win an Emmy may have passed but I’ll root for him anyway.

On the final season announcement

hellyeahomeland:

I’ve been operating under the assumption that season eight was the final season for a long time… years maybe? Despite the wishy-washy nature of Claire’s late spring press, I remained convinced that season eight was the last one. Still, I nervously refreshed Twitter through my spotty connection on the subway home. I knew that if Showtime was going to announce the final season, they’d do it at the TCAs today. And I knew that nothing was set in stone and 100% final until it came from Nevins himself.

I’m feeling a wave of emotions right now, despite having had so long to prepare for this announcement.

I’m happy that the show gets to end on its own terms and that Showtime and Fox had the wherewithal to let Alex and Claire decide when it was time to go.

I’m relieved that the end is in sight and that I myself will be able to close this chapter of my life in just over a year. 

And I’m sad, too. Sad because this space and this show have been a strange sort of anchor in my life for a really long time, a constant through college graduation, new jobs, a few cross-country moves, and new relationships and opportunities. It has been a comfort through the ups and downs of real life. I could probably never articulate how grateful I am for it and for the people it’s brought into my life. And while I know those people will still be there when this show is gone, the idea of this space growing darker and slower does make me feel anxious and a little bit mournful.

Like the show, nothing around here is getting canceled. Rather, it’s all just coming to its natural conclusion. In the beginning, no one was really listening. In the end, and because life is strange and mysterious like that, no one may be again.

But before I knew how to do much of anything around here–before I could make ok-looking gifs, before I understood how to edit podcasts, before I knew HTML and CSS and Photoshop–this space was here. A space where I could click “New post” and just write, where my voice could be uniquely, unabashedly mine. Maybe it would reach a few people, maybe it wouldn’t. But it was my home. And, like a real home, the assurance that it would be there for me to come back to has meant more to me than I could ever say. It’s been freeing in ways I can’t describe. I’ll really miss that.

Thanks for coming along for the ride, and cheers to a final go-round.

‘Homeland’ will end with season 8, Showtime confirms

‘Homeland’ will end with season 8, Showtime confirms:

What we had all predicted around here but lacked official (i.e., Showtime-provided) confirmation of is now clear. Season 8 will be the show’s last and will premiere in June 2019. Principal production on season 8 is set to begin in January. 

Gansa’s official statement:

Homeland has been the most joyful and rewarding experience of my career. Not many have been as lucky as me — partnered with the miraculous Claire Danes, supported to the ends of the earth by Fox and Showtime, and working in the company of some of the most gifted writers, actors, and filmmakers in the business. I am sad to see the journey coming to an end, but it is time.

Additional background and fodder: per David Nevins, Claire and Alex said that they wanted season 8 to be the last and he asked them to sleep on it. Cue the strange PR strategy during Claire’s Pod Tour of America. David Nevins was also adamant during the executive session at the TCAs that the show is not being canceled but rather coming to its natural conclusion. (For the show’s flagship series for the last eight years, this distinction makes sense. Apparently he also made a Dexter/lumberjack joke.)

It occurred to me while reading this that maybe he’s getting back into recording albums in preparation for the show ending next year. There was no S8 denial or can-kicking here. The piece was quite matter-of-fact about the end, though of course Mandy didn’t come out and say it.

Once again I thought that I do like Mandy a lot more than Saul. Interesting article about an interesting human.
