Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This is an intelligent and intriguing story that combines a traditional espionage drama with familiar narratives about Middle Eastern politics, mostly offered from a British point of view. Adding to the story are a cast of complicated characters that add interesting elements to the plot.

It's not action-packed, nor is it easy to follow, thanks to the sophisticated story lines. Despite being a work of fiction, the focus on contemporary politics also adds to its depth. But if you're a fan of these types of shows, you will find it outstanding.
