21 Patriotic TV Shows: When Stars & Stripes Meet the Small Screen

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Independence Day. 

It's a time for barbeque, fireworks and thoughts about what it means to live in a free country. 

How does television fit into this celebration? Aside from offering up various marathons every year on the holiday?

The small screen has never suffered from a shortage of patriotic endeavors and themes, airing programs that take viewers inside the CIA, the White House and other levels of government.

So wipe the barbeque sauce off your finger tips, put down your corn on the cob and flip through some of the best television America has to offer on the subject of loving this great country...

Homeland
Bipolar CIA agent Carrie Mathison was the only one keen enough to guess that a rescued war hero had been turned by the enemy. She goes to all lengths to protect her country.
