I've watched all episodes of Rubicon and find it a welcome addition to our TV viewing. It is a thought provoking series, engrossing, low key and it keeps the viewer in suspense. It is the type of mystery that may not appeal to everyone. The list of characters although unknown by name to most viewers, have been well cast in their parts. These are people one can relate to in the real world. There are not the usual chase or shock value scenes that are common in many of today's TV thrillers, but never-the-less it is a refreshing departure from the garden variety TV shows. I congratulate the producers of this show for giving us food for our minds and also for their willingness to take a chance on a show that may not appeal to certain segments of our TV audience. I just hope Rubicon will continue with new episodes for a long time to come. I now have something to look forward to come Sunday. I think the one episode per week format is a problem. I for one find it difficult to wait an entire week to see more. Maybe a new episode every 3 days might keep the audience faithful.
