We’ve revisited one of our favorite Showtime series, “Homeland.” The Emmy-winning show is about a brilliant, but slightly mentally unstable, CIA agent, Carrie Mathison (played by Claire Danes). The show is amazing, filled with unbelievable plot twists, fascinating characters and relevant story lines. But, even with all the car chases, prisoner torture and presidential assassinations, all I can focus on is that Carrie Mathison wears pantsuits.
