In the opening episode of Season 4 of “Homeland,” Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes), CIA station chief in Kabul, is sitting in a rec center within the U.S. compound drinking a beer and watching baseball on TV, when a young Air Force pilot approaches. After an exchange that establishes Carrie as the person who called in the airstrike he flew on the home of a suspected terrorist, the lieutenant says, “Monsters.” “What did you say?” Mathison angrily demands of the young man she had previously been sizing up sexually.

Talk about a TV series keeping current with the news. Thirty seconds into the Season 2 opener of Showtime's “Homeland,” viewers see the first image of an American embassy under attack in the Middle East. At just over two minutes into the episode, American and Israeli flags are burned as U.S. officials are threatened by an angry mob surrounding the embassy compound. It's our embassy in Beirut, not the consulate in Benghazi, that's under attack. And the reason for the mob in “Homeland” is an Israeli bombing of Iranian nuclear reactors - not a film that offended Muslims or a targeted attack, depending on which administration official you are listening to at any given moment.

Do you remember the term "stress position?" It was part of the debate over the limits of interrogation in the war on terror. One such practice, apparently used by the KGB, leaves a prisoner forced to stand with no relief for up to a day. It's awful . "Homeland" gives us a metaphorical reminder on the subject in Episode 8 of Season 2, as we see Brody restrained on all sides, held in a posture where both action and inaction mean agony....

Sure, her official position is hazy -- and she might not even be getting paid, but Carrie Mathison is back at the CIA. And so are bunch of video screens fixed on Nicholas Brody. The recursive storylines that defined Homeland's first season were back in a big way in Episode 4 of Season 2, as Carrie returns to work on a top-secret surveillance team monitoring Brody. As the show's perspective switches between the two characters, we again see Carrie's life being defined by the Brody she sees and hears on screen.

Nicholas Brody is in deep trouble. Not just because Episode 2 of Homeland's second season ends with a damning piece of evidence against him, but because Carrie Mathison's about to be back on his trail. Even as Brody is pulled in different directions by his family, his country and his faith, he's also going to have to deal with Carrie. She was right about him all along, and she's about to figure that out. The action in the episode centers on a covert operation in Beirut, designed to take out big target Abu Nazir -- Brody's friend and Carrie's obsession.

It is hard to imagine any city in the nation being more reviled by Americans these days than Washington. The standoff last week among the White House, Senate and House of Representatives as the clock wound down on the country's ability to pay its bills was yet another example of the partisan posturing and dysfunction that so dominates life in the nation's capital. Meanwhile, our leading news channels have become more ideologically oriented and less interested in helping viewers sort through the self-serving lies and spin.

Spies, sex, drugs and a beaming Ronald Reagan. Those are the elements for one of the most arresting scenes you'll see this year on television. It will air Wednesday night on "The Americans," one of the most talked-about series this spring on cable TV. The scene features a female Russian spy on a mission, a male congressional aide on cocaine, and Elizabeth Jennings (Keri Russell), the Soviet sleeper agent at the center of the FX series, breaking into a congressman's office safe late at night while the other two go at it under a portrait of the Great Communicator.
