Around the remote: Chuck Barney's picks for Oct. 4-10

DON'T MISS: "Homeland" - Season 5 of the acclaimed drama begins two years after the horrific embassy attack in Islamabad. No longer with the CIA, Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) is building a new life with her daughter in Berlin. She's even in a stable relationship with a nice German lawyer (Alex Fehling). Oh, but you just know all hell will break loose soon. 9 p.m. Sunday, Showtime.
