    This is a show about religion, politics, parent-child relationships, and the moral dilemmas of insurgency. Consider it a workplace drama where the business is armed resistance.

    One of TV’s boldest and best dramas.

This is the best series of I dowloaded BG a few weeks ago on my Ipod during a 3-week business trip to England. All I can say is WOW! This is the best series of television ever produced.
