To me, Kasinski is that inconsequential guy is The Office. That's all.

What'll they have next, a reboot of Superman played by Donald Duck? ::sheesh::

I can't get past this myself so I'm skipping it.

You guys act like they make this stuff for "patriots", "experts", "die-hards", vets and active duty.
It's made for "middle Americans", the "forgettable faces" who lap up everything Amazon puts on prime (I'm looking at you Mrs. Maisel)...

IMHO, the best show/series on Amazon Prime is the Grand Tour. Real life, minimally scripted. Cars and adventure.

To me its totally subversively scripted to influence the under informed about Venezuelan politics as they stand today.
In reality The people currently in power illegally and whom have destroyed Venezuela economically ARE LEFT WING SOCIALISTS headed by Maduro, Successor to Hugo "nationalize that" Chavez.
The PEOPLE are Right wing who won the election under Gaido but Maduro refuses to relinquish power.
The Series makes the people in power seem to be right wing nationalists, and the party led by the woman as the 'Leftists" who champion the rights of the poor starving masses
To me its overt propaganda to portray the "truth" in a mirror.
Yes lately I look at things more in the context of what are the writers trying to do here? Do they accurately describe the situation as it really is? In this case the oppressive communists should be the ones who are in power. At one point the female presidential candidate is in a flashback and her husband is spouting some commie bull poop lines about power and the state as the righteous wielder of power granted by the people to to protect the people, and they should all acquiesce to the state as the great protector and provider.
Or do they use this as a vehicle to further portray fallacies and innuendo to subvert popular opinions? (AKA propaganda)
In most cases I see clear biases against conservative right, while left is portrayed as the ones who have suffered at the hands of the right wing servants of big business and capitalism. No I am not wasting any more of my time to watch it.

Blackhawk helicopters can fly around Venezuela with ZERO resistance. They can even land on top of the Presidential Palace during a period of civil unrest, drop off a bunch of CIA guys, then loiter around waiting for them. Apparently the entire Venezuelan military consists of a few platoons of incompetent police and soldiers. They did have one truck with a machine gun on it but nothing a well placed LAW rocket couldn't deal with.

Season 1 was definitely better.

BUTTTT. They could track the 3 guys in the jungle with their portable laptop

Doing a Saturday Binge on it now.... Finishing up episode 6 right now.

I'll say this... it is keeping me glued, but it is not as good as Season 1.

This season is a little reminiscent of Clear and Present Danger, but not nearly as good.

I'll give it a 7 out of 10.

Wife and I watched Season 2 already. It was ok, but not as good as Season 1.

AND, like most shows out there, it is pushing an agenda. For example:

Greer is a practicing Muslim.

Venezuela is (in the show) ruled by a right wing dictator. And the Leftists are the "good guys"

Other than that, the story line was ok. I appreciated the use of Spanish when Venezuelans are talking among themselves; that's more true to reality.

Does anyone know if there will be a Season 3?

Also, as a general rule, I prefer Amazon Prime to Netflix; the shows just seem better.

They always add that modifier to "dictator"; it's quite tiresome.
