"You will know."

It was Mandy Patinkin's mom's answer to her child when they watched a black-and-white romance on TV and he asked her how you know you're in love.

Patinkin says it became a mantra for his life and career -- and a philosophy that informs Saul, the trusting boss of a rogue and mentally-troubled CIA agent named Carrie (Claire Danes) in the war-on-terror drama Homeland.

"You'll know, and you'll make mistakes for God's sakes. But I put great store in things feeling right."

President Obama's favourite TV series, Homeland has played two seasons on Super Channel, and begins from Season One Wednesday on Bravo.

It follows Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis), an American POW who is discovered in the ruins of an Al Qaeda encampment. Carrie, whose obsessiveness is controlled by meds, has intel that suggests Brody has "turned" while in prison. Meanwhile, he's considered an American hero, being prepped for politics.
