Much More than Appears
15 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is MUCH more to this episode than appears at first. Although the country that General Pak flees from is given a fictional name, it is clearly Burma, called Myanmar by the ruling military junta – same abuses by the military, persecution of ethnic minorities, kidnapping and murder of civilians, and mass exodus of refugees.

The producers are trying to tell viewers about the horrors in Burma. Unfortunately, so few people in the U.S. know what is going on in Burma that the producers' message is largely lost.

I commend the producers for making a TV show that is entertaining but also informs people about serious issues in the world.
