YOU MUST WATCH "TYRANT" ON FX THIS WEEK
THIS IS THE BEST DRAMATIC TV SERIES ON TV RIGHT NOW
FOR MORE THAN TWO SEASONS. GO TO YOUR CLICKERS AND RECORD THIS WEEK'S SHOW. It is the most exciting they've ever done....better that "24" and "Homeland" combined.
All the actors are incredibly talented, but none more than Jennifer Finnigan, who is a combination of Julianne Moore and Meryl Streep. If this episode were a movie, I guarantee you, she'd be nominated for Best Actress. Incidentally, she has already won THREE daytime Emmys for her acting, and starred in four TV series prior to this one, which became a hit.
In the story, Finnigan is an American doctor practicing in the U.S., who is married to a Middle Eastern (but very westernized) man named Barry. Barry is actually Basham, the son of the ruler of a Middle East country called "Abudin." They also have two children,
Needless to say, the set-up is that they go there on vacation and get trapped into staying. Suddenly their lives are thrown into terror and family drama. It is a deep study of what the world is like in one of those countries today.
