EHG 45: Homeland Wants Its Spy Mommy

It's a fine, rare episode that features Mandy Patinkin and Carl Reiner; Jeff Drake helped make it happen.

Our esteemed colleague Jeff Drake came not to praise Homeland's season premiere, but to bury it -- but he and the gang found a lot to like. We went around the dial with animated shows, British-history-based streaming sleep aids, and a great ending to a great Bob's Burgers, before Liv accidentally NSFWed the Face Off report and Sarah reviewed Lena Dunham's new book. The Giudices got jail time, Tara got (pea)cocky for Game Time, and we tried not to drone on in a radical Extra Hot Great.
