Started watching this 8 part mini-series the other day not really expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised. For those of you that can tolerate British dramas, this is a keeper…it is a nice hybrid of the modern spy story with some nice twist and turns. Plus, with the Israeli/Palestine conflict as it’s main impetus and background, things get violent here and there, and the pace quickens considerably…. so you action folks will have something to grab on to. It stars Maggie Gyllenhaal (Jake Gyllenhaal’s sister) who as a whole, I consider kind of a weird, detached actress from movies I have seen her in, but still overall, in this show she is talented.
I am only 2 episodes in to the 8, but as of right now, I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
