I have heard fans of this show comparing it to Showtime's Homeland. That is laugable. This is more like 24 only less believable, often implausible and ridiculous. It makes me wonder if Americans really believe this is how our intelligence agencies operate. In the first episode he is a super terrorist who is as dangerous as Hannibal Lector, a couple episodes later he is running or intelligence operations. The bar for network television is loooooow.

I love James Spader as an actor...everything I have ever seen him in makes it a win win for me. I am not a crime story fanatic but I am a fan of his. He could read the dictionary and make this recitation at the very least interesting. I hope there are more seasons of this show...and I hope hope he can do a movie or a play. I am there. I loved the show so much that I bought the last season instead of waiting for Netflix to catch up. Thanks to the cast entirely for making such a funny and riveting show. One final note...the thing that makes this such a great show also are all the wacky supporting actors; many not young, many probably considered past their prime. OMG...they add a layer of curious and wonderful taste to an already delicious dish. See this show; binging is inevitable.
Ive never been so into a show. I was always in supense. It wasnt slow like a crime and same thing happens... Everything is connected, its not just another episode... Its the next piece to the puzzle that leaves you on edge 24/7. Amazing amazing
