Incredible watch. The spy is an edge of the seat thriller based on Mossad agent Eli Cohan. This 6 episode mini series chronicles the years Eli spent as a spy in Syria and befriended top Syrian officials and smuggled information for Israel. After th initial 2 episodes the show wasn't feeling thrilling enough but gosh the next ones blew me away. There is this always inate sense of urgency but calmness in this show unlike many others high octane spy action thrillers. Sacha gives a performance of a lifetime as Eli and is smooth as butter in the show. I always enjoy these kind of stories personally as they not only entertain you but give you a wealth of historical knowledge. While this show might have it's fair share of historical inaccuracies, but it still tells and incredible tale. I would have loved if the show had more episodes so that it could have been a little more detailed considering that this period was succeeded by the escalation of conflict between Israel and Arab countries. Apart from this minor blip the show is very well written and acted.
