America is one country among many.....
2 July 2009 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

.....but Nigeria and Burma are not household words here. Thanks to THE PHILANTHROPIST, American television entertainment may have just taken a humanitarian turn for the better, while still providing solid entertainment.

This can't help but be a good thing, and I sincerely hope this show is successful. It's entertaining enough, so I remain optimistic.

One thing I noticed, the lens through which we view the rest of the world, so far, isn't filtered by American values. What we see are simple human values. This is a good approach, I think.

Our protagonist, emotionally devastated over the death of his son, is driven to help those who are also suffering, especially children. That this takes place on the world's stage is quite unusual for American television, and long overdue.

I've enjoyed the first two episodes and been moved by them as well. This is what a dramatic series should do.
