Top 20 TV shows of 2013
In years to come, we will remember 2013 as the year everything changed. Danny Dyer is now in Eastenders, and across the land all else has ceased to matter. But look upon the works of this medium, now so wholly transformed, and you will see more than this. And you might think it handy that some berk put it all in a list and bid you read it.

Yeah, so Homeland's gone off the boil a bit
I saw a tweet a couple of weeks ago on a Sunday night. It said: "It's a shame Homeland's shit now." This might be an example of the social media user's tendency to describe everything in extreme terms, but it highlighted a worrying drop-off in the quality of one of the best new shows in years. No, it's not shit - far from it - but it's made some odd choices in its second season.

It's the biggest cliffhanger since Sylvester Stallone physically hung from a cliff in the film Cliffhanger. But what happens next in Homeland? I've figured it out and present my findings to you here. [Warning: very spoilery if you haven't seen episode 2.2.]

I went looking for Damian Lewis's Emmy acceptance speech, and came away with so much more. Some of the best TV actors around, just shootin' the shit.

WIN the chance to watch Homeland at the Imperial War Museum
That's right, I put WIN in capital letters because you can literally WIN a thing here. It does involve leaving the house, though. I realise this goes against everything we stand for, but stick with it.

Meaning Homeland will be a world in which FOX News doesn't have to pretend it believes someone in the White House has Islamist sympathies: it'll actually be true.
