PAMELA AUCOIN: How HOMELAND validates the war on terror

Pop culture serves to entertain, and reinforce cultural norms. Television shows have always done this; studying them, and their attitudes towards authority reveals a lot about America. One of the most well-received shows of the season is Showtime’s "Homeland." The series features a fine pedigree of actors, like Claire Danes and Mandy Patinkin, and was originally a show on Israeli television. While that may not sound exactly like the BBC, it still has the allure of the foreign-produced, which suggests a less provincial background.
