    The series is getting mixed reviews with a 54 on metacritic.
    Has anyone watched it yet? What did you think of the pilot?

    I stumbled accross this one last night. I watched about 20 minutes before I changed the channel. It kinda was meh to me. Plus, I feel like it might cause a lot of controversy.

    Howard Gordon + David Yates + FX

    What could possibly go wrong?

    Apparently a lot of things, but I will still probably watch the complete first season.

    I liked the first episode. Seems like a rip off from House of Sadam but I enjoyed it.

    So I haven’t seen anything on the forums for this show about season 2, but I really had to talk about it.
    I wasn’t a huge fan of season 1; the acting (specifically Ashraf Barhom as Jamal) is what kept me locked in as well as the final two episodes of the season. Season 2 started out the same way for me, with Jamal and his wife Leila being the only characters I could really care to follow. Barry wasn’t really a thrilling hero and I didn’t really care if he lived or died, and his family (especially the annoying kids) as well as Jamal’s son offered nothing of interest.
    But as the season progressed, the writers began expanding and developing the characters more, turning Barry into a true, sympathetic hero that you want to succeed on a journey that keeps you on the edge of your seat. It also helped Jamal really develop even more as a villain you can’t decide whether to hate or pity, as well as his family, while also managing to introduce a terrifying new group of villains in the ISIS-inspired Caliphate while giving a great insight into the plagues and horrors of many innocent lives in the middle east.
    I’ve really grown to love and appreciate this show with the airings of the last two episodes, “Zanjir” and “Desert Storm” with “Zanjir” standing out in particular. Without spoiling anything regarding the season, I must SEVERELY RECOMMEND watching “Zanjir” as it is one of the best hours of television I’ve seen in a while and brought back all of the same feelings I would have watching Breaking Bad, with an intensity and thrill rivaling that of “Ozymandias”, my favorite TV episode ever.
    In summary, Tyrant’s sophomore season has been a slow build toward excellence, and I can’t wait for the finale next Tuesday!

    I will never watch Tyrant. I’m tired of Hollywood white washing.
