    Anyone watch this on FX tonight ??

    Premiere episode and it Looks pretty good. Its like 24 but in reverse. An Marine/Convict who is a muslim gets taken in by a terrortist Unit in the US. Main character is the Sleeper Cell called Darwin.

    Looks like it will have plenty of twists and turns along the way as his cover may be blown at any time.

    Not as family friendly as 24 as the language is a bit more colorful and the violence is a bit more extreme. For example One of the terrorist cell gets buried in the desert upto his neck as part of the initiation to the cell. He the gets stoned pretty much to death by the group and the Sleeper Cell. Obviously Darwin doesnt want to do this but if he doesnt his cover maybe blown.

    First impressions it looks pretty good.

    Eh? That didn't happen. Blokey almost gave the game away talking to his uncle in Egypt so they forcibly bury him in sand and stone him to death. Main character blokey can't bear to see it continue so he shoots him.

    It was pretty nasty, though. Something worth watching on FX at last?

    Also, it had boobies.

    Awesome show - really really surprised this got made in America. It's presenting Islam in a pretty unbiased light.

    For anyone who missed the first episode, it's repeated on Sunday and at 9pm on Tuesday before the new episode at 10pm also on Tuesday.
