Ideologically regressive in its tacit justification of torture as a deterrent for extremism but a compelling drama in the first two series. Its stereotypical depiction of the Muslim faith was also problematic.
It started out brilliantly but, unfortunately, it kept getting worse and worse from season to season.
I'm convinced that this is secretly a very bad show. Each season seems to get worse as it tries to emulate '24'. One ridiculous scenario after another.
6| - 3.5
The most underrated
I do enjoy this, tho
SEASON I, II, III *****
