'Homeland' - 'Pilot'After much anticipation, the star-studded 'Homeland' (Sun., 10PM ET on Showtime) finally premiered, and it delivered on every level. Claire Danes and Mandy Patinkin are a revelation together, with Danes absolutely smashing a very unpredictable and uncertain role.

Carrie Mathison is already one of the most fascinating lead characters on television. We come out of this premiere with no real grasp on whether she's crazy and grasping at straws, or crazy but on to something really big. Yes, we're pretty sure, she's crazy, but it's the kind of crazy that draws you into her world.

Damian Lewis is brilliantly harrowed as recovered POW Marine Sgt. Nicholas Brody, while Morena Baccarin as his conflicted wife proves once again that with great material she can rise to the occasion. At least, it's nice to see her playing a human again, and growing her hair out.

This premiere was really just a tease to a potential massive plot that Carrie is uncovering, or she may just be off her rocker completely. That uncertainty is just as exciting and intriguing as what she thinks she's on to. It's not going to be easy, though, considering she's suspecting an American hero of being a double-agent for Al-Qaeda.
