Mesmerizing

Totally hooked right away. So we’ll done. Great acting. Uncanny story. Bravo.

YogaMat123 ,

Very well produced

I generally don’t like fiction but this popped up as recommended for me, probably because I do enjoy other Lindsay Graham podcasts, so I gave it a chance and it hooked me immediately. Music, characters, plot, all of it. This was fantastically done.

+’s and -‘s

Overall incredibly well produced, written, and acted. Quality of the show is like something from a big budget HBO or Netflix show.

However; the antagonist of the story is a thinly veiled attempt at portraying Donald Trump and it’s quite obvious. Whether you hated him or loved him or like me was flabbergasted by some of his behavior and comments; IMO I don’t think Trump was an evil character actively trying to destroy America. Anyway without giving away spoilers there are actions that the main protagonist takes that would be overreaching and that’s a complete understatement. The events in the conclusion of this season are actions a tyrant would do and honestly what Trump critics believed he would do in real life so there’s some irony there.

In conclusion, great, riveting political thriller that keeps you hooked but also has a real world bias and agenda IMO.
