    This is an amazing account of a true Story. Sacha Cohen was masterful in his portrayal of the real Eli Cohen. His comical middle eastern characters and his look gave him all the license he needed to become a serious mainstream actor. He should win an Oscar for his performance. this is a 4 Star mini series. thats out of 4 stars! A definite must see!!!

    This is fantastic entertainment, which is not always apparent in fact based drama.

    Nothing unique or impressive in this series. Writing is bland and story is predictable. Id give it a C+

    Nice production design but ultimately the main character and the show as a whole lacks emotional depth. Sacha Baron Cohen lacks the dramatic weight but, to be fair, so does Gideon Raff's script. The main language is English instead of Arabic or Hebrew. Why take for example a US actor (Noah Emmerich) who puts on a half-assed accent to portray an Israeli character? Anybody looking for a good spy thriller should stick to «The Americans» or the French series «The Bureau».
