But let's enjoy it like we did with ChernobillThe show has its flaws, especially in the thrilling scenes at night were everything is lit up like it's a football game, or some of the most significant people from the enemy just hand out top secret info after a cigar and a handshake..Otherwise it's a catching and nice show and the actors are really holding it up.

Gripping series .

I recommend this show to anyone that wants to understand the true events of history in a very entertaining way.

It's a well written, well paced thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Whole series is fascinating as in history.

It's gripping, well enacted, production values are sound.

Incredibly dull .

The time period and cinematography is well done and the mini series is extremely entertaining.

Dragged out obvious end of a Spy .

Strong directing, writing, and pacing makes this a very engaging show.

Gripping, tantalising, strikingly straight in the eyeEven when you know what's going to happen, it's intense to watch this.

Just another propaganda .

I found the story engrossing, and SCB's dramatic turn showcases his acting potential.

Too bad considering the storyline is fascinating to watch.

The most beautiful breathtaking series I've seen recently!!

It's commendable that the writing has closely mirrored the historical facts surrounding Eli Cohen, as what he experienced is entertaining enough without the need for embellishment.

Breathtaking .

Thrilling Six episodes with some great performances.

Worth watching.


Highly enjoyable

'The Spy' is a really well thought-out my mini series and keeps the viewer on the edge of the seat of their emotions.

Mesmerizing, elegant yet thrilling .

Well worth watching and one of the better mini series of recent times.

Total waste of time.

Breathtaking every episode!

Mind blowing.

his look so clowny that the scenes he's in were confusing.

This show is solid, entertaining, interesting, tense, exciting, sad, funny, and tells us some intriguing history bits...

Well worth watching .

It took an exciting and interesting subject and a real-life great spy story, added a bunch of talented actors and missed every single opportunity to make it into more than rather cheesy and boring TV.

it is painstakingly slow in development, spread over 6 episodes, too long for keeping one spellbound.

So far, the first episode has gotten me hooked, I'm being educated in the most entertaining and realistic way possible and just cannot wait to binge the rest!

Gripping .

The characted development is intriguing and is not overly announced to the viewer.

Well worth watching...

Fascinating story.

A HUMAN IMPERFECT SPY - Gripping, Intense, Binge-Watch!!.

Could of been one episode shorter, to many repetitive scenes with Noah worrying over his agent.

Stunning decor.

All the characters have performed very well, expressing the intense emotions needed to stir the audience, which makes it very engaging.

Overall, I sense that this movie is very much a propaganda movie and nothing more.

Fascinating story .

This spy show is gripping, intense, and you will watch it till the end.

This director had a lot of cliche scenes.

Exciting and thought provoking historical thriller mini series .

This was well worth the watch.
