If anyone posts DUPE, I'll fly over and punch you in the mouth, I looked through the first couple pages and couldn't find any threads.

Anyway, it's on Showtime and tonight was the season finale. I discovered this show on episode 7, but through the miracle of digital cable, I was able to catch up on the older episodes. Overall I thought it was a really good series. It's about a UC FBI agent who infiltrates an Islamic terrorist cell in the US. The season follows the cell as they plan a big terror event and finally attempt to carry out their attack.

My favorite part of today's episode was Tommy's mother talking to the press. Pretty accurate depiction.

I hope they make a second season.

I watched it last night and thought it was a lame attempt at another terrorist attack the US show.

I thought it was, boring, lacked original material and only borrowed its story lines from other shows of its kind.

I may watch another episode and give it a chance but I doubt I will go out of my way to do so.

It's a good show and I especially think Dawin's female FBI boss is a major hottie. Damn she's fine as hell.

I don't know, I thought it was pretty unique. I liked how the cell had members from all different backgrounds. You have a Saudi posing as a Jewish American, a Serb, a Frenchman, African-American, and privileged white guy and the only unifying factor was Islam. They also did a decent job in developing the characters, something you don't see all too often any more.

It wasn't as action packed as other terrorist shows, but I felt it was much more realistic and authentic. On the other hand, I've watched shows like "24" and I always thought they were a bit silly and VERY unrealistic.
