Tyrant: the TV series
FX

Posted on 07/15/2014 8:06:39 PM PDT by jsanders2001

Has anyone seen the new TV series, "Tyrant"? It has to do with terrorism and tyranny and tells it from the perspective of the terrosrist's perspective. It portrays the Muslims speaking English while wearing their hijabs and other Muslim attire. I get the feeling that the show was produced to make the Muslims appear more "American" friendly and suspect its a veiled attempt to introduce their lifestyle to Americans to familiarize them with their culture incrementalism style. It would take an idiot to not understand the implications and intentions therein.


TOPICS: Society; TV/Movies
KEYWORDS: muslim; propaganda; sympathy

The commercials were enough to make me sick to my stomach, so I don’t and won’t watch it.

They play it us as the people are driven to terrorism by a dictator but reality shows that they don’t need a dictator to behave like animals.

If anything, dictators are the only thing that keeps them under any kind of control.

OK many thanks for the info.

I don’t have cable TV, so I guess I’m not missing much.

the creator of Tyrant is also the creator of Homeland, the HBO hit about a Manchurian candidate politician. Homeland is a remake of an Isreali show ‘Prisoner of War.’

Like Homeland, if you can accept the absurd premises of the creator then it will suck you in. Otherwise, its all hollywood IMO.

Actually a decent game. 5-3 AL in the bottom of the 8th. Too much Jeter jabber.

I suspect it's soon going to have such a libtard slant to it that it will be impossible to stomach. I saw where there is going to be a new series out on a female Secretary of State played by Tia Leoni who dresses and wears her hair and other things just like Hillary, an you better believe she is going to be one fantastic world saving Secretary of State! It's called Madam Secretary.

And there's another one like it by another network called State of Affairs, and yes, another blond...

Thanks ... my apology for asking. Should have looked it up myself. Sometimes I forget I have information at my own fingertips called interwebs ... LOL

I tried it and for me it fails as drama because I don’t care about any of the characters.

It also felt phony because for obvious reasons it cannot deal with the malign, corrosive influence of political Islam in any specific way.

The story is told from the Dictator’s Americanized son who is ashamed and horrified by his family. He reluctantly stays after his father dies to influence his sadistic brother who is now in charge.

I tried watching but can’t take the stupid wife and children side stories. Too trite and annoying. (same as the Homeland fake family that never rings true) Other than that, the series is just average, IMO. btw, poor acting as well.

Uh yeah, what’s next up from this ‘creator’? A show showing heroin use as a healthy lifestyle option?

FX. The “Fargo” mini-series was absolutely brilliant.

Heard the wife of the Pediatrician brother equate this mythical tyrannical country with the country without peace to ISRAEL. You had tone listening close, but, there it was.

I might have still been watching it (to see how it developed) until they introduced the, apparently de riguer, homosexual scene. I won’t bother watching anymore.

State of Affairs is not about a female Secretary of State but about a CIA Analyst. In that sense it is more like Homeland.

Her husband was the son of the black female Secretary of State. She goes after the killer. Not about the Secretary of State saving the world.

Same here. Another show I stopped watching was “Halt and Catch Fire” and for the same reason.

FX had a hit with the series Fargo. Lots of ads on Fargo for Tyrant but to tell the truth I just aint interested in anything out of the middle east.

Haven’t seen it. I wrote it off as soon as I saw the commercial.

I see enough of them around here, wrapped up in their bedsheets in the July heat. Don’t care to watch them on TV.
