Prisoners of War: Season 1

Watched the first few episodes of the excellent Israeli series, Prisoners of War which Homeland is based on. Prisoners of War was a completely different show. First there’s no Carrie Mathison character. Second the action takes place inside the minds of the characters. The stories revolve around two former Israeli POWs reliving the horrors of their torture and their families readjusting to their appearance after 17 years in captivity. A fairly simple series with excellent writing and many profound moments. I stopped watching because the flashback torture sequences were too much for me to stomach. Definitely worth investing time into even with the violence. 4 out of 5.
