  • Great show

    7.0
    Love the show
  • So dumb

    3.0
    This show is beyond horrible. Another dumb blonde character who has no clue about any world history? So FX is trying to convince me that a son of a dictator moves to America and is smart enough to be a doctor marries some STUPID female who has no clue about the turmoil and terror that goes on in this made up country? She thinks it's all fun and games and has no clue about the danger she's in? Even the dumbest american's know that Yemen, Syria, Iran, Iraq are all dangerous countries ran by dangerous people. FX is REALLY relying on me to think that all American women are this stupid? I think not. AVOID THIS SHOW IF YOU HAVE A BRAIN!

  • Intense.

    9.0
    That's really the only way I can describe the Pilot episode. And though I give this episode high marks for its acting, storytelling, and think its too intense for me to enjoy on a week to week basis.
  • Good one!

    9.5
    well, i would not call this one a political was good, it was crazy and it was WAY TOO MUCH like done for israeli actors Salim Daw and Moran Atias although very small parts...
  • Nice beginning! lets see where it goes....

    8.5
    The first 15 minutes really hooked me, it seamed nearly too good, a critic to the "American way" ported to the middle east and a main character stereotyped as a European. A melting pot of ideas kind of...



    After that, the downtime of the story was way too long and quite predictable, in the end it gets more interesting but still very predictable.



    The main character seems well developed. We get some more hints of his past at the end and I'm looking forward to see the next episode.moreless
