A powerful & extraordinarily complex crime drama!
One of my close buddies has recommended this show, and I have completed watching the entire series in almost a month but, with a lot of patience watching a few episodes of the series every day. To finish a tv show/series, one needs some dedicated time and patience too. 😊 Trust me. This is one of the most engaging shows where Hollywood has made by inspiring from an Israeli show called “Prisoners of War.”
First of all, the show deals with the subject of terrorism in a very mature way, there is no ideology behind the script, and every perspective is fairly treated. All the characters have real depth rarely seen on screen and are backed-up by a lot of solid acting. Indeed, the conflicting elements to the central characters make the show so great and would unlikely to be pulled-off without the actors of caliber like Claire Danes, Damian Lewis, Mandy Patinkin, and Morena Baccarin (also particular kudos to the daughter played by Morgan Saylor – one to watch out for in the future).
Not only do you watch these characters go through some weird and strained circumstances, but you really feel it too. Each & every character in this show, starting the lead characters to small cameos, everyone has a meaty role and back story. You will get that essence of each character only by watching each & every episode. Undoubtedly fantastic production values and background score is a highlight in every season. Hook points for each episode are so thrilling, sometimes your imagination & thinking will go wrong. Each season will surprise you a lot. The Finale season is amazing.
The story has a depth and complexity to it seen in shows such as Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, True Detective, The Sopranos, Prison Break & Narcos. There are no plot holes that distract from the often quite tense narrative, and despite what you think of the overall subject, I would be surprised if this show does not totally suck you in. The series is a very real, well thought out and well-executed show. A big thumbs up to everyone involved in making this series. Of course, there are some slow and lagging moments but compared to the epic thrilling moments, they are negligible. So, allocate some time and go for this show. I’m sure you all will like it.
