One of the best recent shows on TV. Based on the Israeli series Hatufim by Gideon Raff, it was developed by Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa, two of the writing veterans from 24. The show is often alluded to as a more adult version of 24, what with some of the writers from season 7-8 joining, as well as Sean Callery composing the music. It also has strong language and nudity, and deep, rounded characters. The critical acclaim has been overwhelmingly positive and it has deservedly won awards.

The first season sees agent Carrie Matheson (Claire Danes) trying to figure out whether a recently re-discovered, thought dead marine called Nick Brody (Damian Lewis) is a turned terrorist. The many twists and turns keep the show on edge and you always want more because it's so goddamn awesome!

Season 2 recently started, and to not spoil anything, it's main plot concerns another planned attack on US soil.
