Review of Tyrant

60 minutes

Tyrant tells the story of an unassuming American family drawn into the workings of a turbulent Middle Eastern nation. Bassam "Barry" Al Fayeed, the younger son of the dictator of a war-torn nation, ends a self-imposed 20-year exile to return to his homeland, accompanied by his American wife and children, for his nephew’s wedding. Barry’s reluctant homecoming leads to a dramatic clash of cultures as he is thrown back into the familial and national politics of his youth.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

I hate this kind of stories and I usually not watch but the trailer was so interesting, I gave it a try and now I am hooked. Its great and I love the show, glad I gave it a try, otherwise I would have missed a great storyline and action. Its just unbelievable and it makes you see those other cultures from a different point of view. I think this series will change everyone and how they think about middle east countries. Tyrant is not such a tyrant but the victim of some unscrupulous men around him who force him or press him to act in a bad way.
