Pretty good for Keshet
17 January 2019 | by geekydancerSee all my reviews

First off, the title, Bishvilah Giborim Ofim should translate to "For Her Heroes Fly", which makes more sense. Secondly, other reviews refer to them as former special forces. But, it shows them as Golani, which is infantry. I love that it is in the only languages I understand, Hebrew, Spanish and English. I'm only on the episode where Oded Ferrer first appears. So far, the plot has developed at a decent pace and the characters are approachable and believable. I wish they'd explained better why Yaeli stopped being datit, and why Aviv was more shell-shocked than the rest of the unit. But, this is an interesting show, despite the flash-backs, and I'm looking forward to them finding her.
