I am burning through a couple-few seasons of Sleeper Cell from Showtime.
I am super impressed by the show but I am confused as to the memetic and propagandic — read political — agenda of the show.
Does anyone have any insight into this raw television show, this rugged, well-acted, show about terrorist “sleeper cells” in the United States, and the women who love them?
I am curious as to your take — I can’t tell, and I am pretty good at sorting out message agenda …
Is Sleeper Cell pro-war, anti-war; is it pro-Islam or anti-Islam; or is it one of those super-rare “balanced” works?
The show is so well-acted and so well-produced, that I would really like to know what the show intends to say and convey.
Either way, it is very fine story-telling.
