Review:
Rating: [Watch it] / It depends / Skip it
  • What made this a hit will be lost on many audiences outside of Israel. It was novel for a show to provide screen time to terrorists. In that respect, it feels like The Wire (2002-2008) which often portrayed the struggles of the criminals caught between crime or death. Fauda also finds similarities in its characters. While this has hints of The Wire, it in no way fills that void, feeling more like 24 (2001-2010) with a terrorist attack imminent.
Read my Season 1 full review.
