    Its convoluted story and rising body count strain credibility in a project that doesn't coalesce until its final installment, and not fully even then.
  2. "The State Within" has so many inauthentic touches, that-would-never-happen moments, and is so often off in the details, that it's difficult to take seriously.

The intensity developed until the very end, like a good page turner. Replay came in handy! Full Review »

    One of the best tv series we've seen. We watched it this week when there were terrorist incidents in London & Glasgow.
