    I loved this show. But seeing the ideology they’re stuck to, as Omar said, they’re gonna make every aspect of “the islamic republic” of Pakistan look as if it were there just to support the backward agenda of the radical “islamist” regimes. Hopefully they’ll grow some sense out and not show the brainwashed version that everyone gets to see of Pakistan every day on CNN, Fox, or even NY Times. It sure as hell would make it more realistic, educative, and exciting to watch, but as for what they’d want to show of a muslim world of an Israeli series … meh.

    wow. i can’t wait for the producers of homeland to muck this up again, and obviously make pakistan look like a country where every member of the 180 million strong population is a super-fundamentalist, terrorist.
