September is upon us, and with it comes the return of our favorite TV shows, as well as the premieres of many of the new series on deck to debut on network and cable TV. From the early starters, including Boardwalk Empire, Sons of Anarchy and The Legend of Korra, to the October arrivals, including Grimm, American Horror Story: Coven and The Walking Dead and everything in between, we have plenty to look forward to this fall!
Loyalty seems to be a recurring theme in the promotions we've seen for the upcoming third season of Homeland. One of the recently released teasers was titled "Who do you trust?" and now we have the above poster, which states, "Pledge Allegiance." Allegiance to what? Or more to the point, to whom?

The Golden Globes is an exciting ceremony for a TV fan, as we get to see the stars and producers of some of our favorite TV shows honored with awards for their efforts. It's always good when we, the viewers, agree with the Hollywood Foreign Press on their choices for the past year's best of the best.
