    What a bad show. The dialogue, acting, plot and music is all just horrible. Beyond unrealistic (in the worst ways).

    A friend recommended this and said it was similar to Homeland. This show is much worse and a far cry from Homeland. I'm surprised that the ctritic's and user reviews are so high.

  1. All of Sleeper Cell's didacticism would be forgiven if it were more entertaining. [2 Dec 2005, p.67]

    This engrossing and unnerving nail-biter is a rare treat: a thriller with a brain and a soul.

    Despite laudable elements -- particularly the magnetic Oded Fehr as the cell leader -- [the] series is too uneven to dub this ambitious mission a complete success.
