Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Honorable Woman is a sophisticated British spy series that centers on Middle East politics. It contains lots of bloody violence, people in various stages of undress, sexual behavior, rape scenes, and cursing. Adults drink and smoke. Older teens who like political story-driven stories should be able to handle it, but it's not meant for young or sensitive viewers.
Is It Any Good?
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.
