User Reviews

Relevant and intelligent drama
2 May 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Brave effort by Showtime. Provides insights into the militants and the Muslims who oppose them. Also touches on child prostitution in Mexico in one episode. Warning: Strong language and sex.

A convincing effort by a cast of unknowns. Strong narrative and drama.

The plot deals with the infiltration of a terrorist plot run by sleeper agents in the United States. The would-be terrorists are malcontents with delusional world views. The show does highlight their hard and soft moments as they seek immortality..

The FBI undercover agent has difficult moments. Protecting his identity while keeping his sanity. Killing a fellow member of the cell. Being prodded by his handler to penetrate deeper into the terrorist network.

This show is far superior to NCIS and The Closer. I would recommend this series.
