TV Talk Machine: What's Wrong With 'Homeland'?

What's to be done with the soap elements of 'Homeland' and is the series too far gone? Plus fall show keepers. It's what we talk about when we talk about television.

With plans for the TV Talk Machine podcast going apace -- apace of a skyscraper construction -- Chief TV Critic Tim Goodman turns to the wabi sabi version of the podcast. Meaning, let's just get stuff our there and worry about the finished product and the polish later. 

In this episode of the TVTM, the focus is on Homeland and, not to put too fine a point on it, what the hell has happened. Plus, some advice on what to keep and what to discard on your DVR.
