Pretty Amazing
28 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well this tarnishes just about everyone government-wise. It most likely represents what is probably very true.....how things work. Betrayal, intrigue, human endeavor, are all covered. The character of Nessa Stein is so well played by Maggie Gyllenhaal. The series is almost emotionally draining. So many difficult things confronted.

The things that are taken for granted are kind of interesting. Are we owners of or parents or grandparents actions? If we accept the state of being of circumstances, does that mean we agree with them?

Highly recommended. Worth watching all the way through.

I am curious how the series is received by British, Arabic, Israeli, and other US folks.

As you go through the series, you may want to observe what is represented as true, what is represented as given, and at the end of the series, how folks are portrayed at that point. It tells me about the folks who produced this and what they believe, because although the show appears to be open, freely representing all, in the end, they show common stereotypes, in my opinion. I am not criticizing it, I don't think, but it is not as open as it appears.

I still highly recommend it.
