Fauda: Season 1

Rounding out the month, I binged the past two weeks on an exciting new Netflix import. Many thanks to my work colleague Claudia for giving me a heads up about Fauda, an Israeli thriller television series that dishes out equal parts writing excellence, suspense, and violence. As with several other shows, I tolerate the violence because of the quality of the series. Full disclosure, there’s torture scenes and killing in Fauda. But it’s not a fantasy. It’s reality. Season 1 of Fauda had me on the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next, to whom, and to what end. In Arabic and Hebrew with English subtitles, or ok dubbed in English if you really don’t want to read, Fauda packs a wicked punch leaving you breathless through many episodes including heartbreaking episode six as well as the shocking season finale. Lots of sexy actors, male and female. Gritty, realistic drama about the ongoing war between the Palestinians and the Israelis. Add Fauda to the top of your queue. 4 out of 5.
