If you like to get caught up in a thrilling drama, I highly recommend these selections from our Series section:
|PRISONERS OF WAR - Seasons 1 and 2 (Hebrew title: Hatufim)|
Shout! Factory, 2010.
For fans of Homeland: Prisoners of War is the Israeli version upon which Homeland is based. The story revolves around three Israeli soldiers captured for seventeen years and the lives they return to after being released. Season One begins with two soldiers and the remains of a third to the families they have been estranged from for so long. More realistic than Homeland, this gripping drama will have you on the edge of your seat throughout.
Starring Yoram Toledano, Yael Abecassis, Ishai Golan, Mili Avital, Assi Cohen, Adi Ezroni.
In Hebrew with English subtitles.
|THE AMERICANS - Season 1|

Set during the Reagan-era, cold war 1980s, a pair of Soviet spies pose as an American married couple so they can spy on the U.S. government.
Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys, Holly Taylor, Keidrich Sellati, Noah Emmerich, Richard Thomas, Margo Martindale.
|SHERLOCK - Seasons 1-3|
British Broadcasting Corporation, 2009 - 2014.
A contemporary take on the classic Arthur Conan Doyle stories, Sherlock is a thrilling, funny, fast-paced adventure series set in present-day London. The iconic details from Conan Doyle's original books remain: they live at the same address, have the same names, and, somewhere out there, Moriarty is waiting for them. And so across three thrilling, scary, action-packed, and highly modern adventures, Sherlock and John navigate a maze of cryptic clues and lethal killers to get at the truth.
Starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.
