The intricate plot of RUBICON tells the story of a complex conspiracy. Therefore, and very differently from most other shows of this kind, it has courageously chosen to be complex itself. The story lines, the characters with their intricate relationships and histories, are told in a great depth. Lives of people include boring or uneventful moments, yet in RUBICON, as in real life, those moments are not cut away, on the contrary, they are narrated at their full extend. And as in real life, as insignificant they might be, there is always some reference to the characters profiles and what they might do - or not do - next.

At episode 12 now, I have enjoyed every second of it and do hope that AMC does not let it die at the end of season one. Well done.
