Trivia

Colonel Glen mentions in a phone conversation with Odelle (while she is in the CIA safe house in Bamako) that he was in the waiting room with her father when she was born on July 12, 1976. This is Anna Friel's (Odelle) real date of birth. See more »

Excellent show, good cast,
9 April 2016 | by rebeccax5See all my reviews

I never saw American Odyssey on NBC, but I just finished watching it on Netflx. It's a pity NBC has cancelled it. I hope it is offered on a cable channel for a season 2. The characters are great, Actors are top notch. I want to see more!

Although there are parts of it that feel rushed and incomplete or Network blandness, it manages to be a mostly tight thriller that is very reality based and sticks to it's controversial story with very little compromise.

Seeing it on Netflix without commercial interruption is probably far better then seeing it on NBC.

It's cancellation by NBC, like the cancellation of Hannibal, is a travesty and it should be a warning to other film makers to watch out for NBC's top brasses fear of controversy and lack of caring about the viewer.
