You may or may not be hip to Homeland. For many Canadians, the past few years have gone like this:
Voices from the TV: "And the award goes to ... Homeland ... and the award goes to ... Claire Danes of Homeland ... and the award goes to ... Damian Lewis of Homeland."
Average Canadian: "What the hell is Homeland?"
If this rings a bell, be aware: Homeland has been available to you.
Yes, it originates on U.S. cable channel Showtime, which is not legally available in Canada. But the first two seasons have aired on the Canadian pay service Super Channel, which TV fanatics are well aware of already.
