"Over There" Getting Somewhat Better
The FX series Over There about the Iraq war is getting a little better. Not ideal yet, since the "I" word has yet to make its appearance and probably won't, but better.
Last night they had an episode that showed an asshole American torturer finally breaking a gallant young Iraqi rebel into revealing secrets by bringing in his 15 year-old sister and threatening to hand her over to the Pakistanis to be raped and tortured. On top of that, they showed him breaking his word and having the inhabitants of a small Iraqi farm slaughtered from the sky by a missile.
I have to admit, it's a kick seeing Amurricans in movie roles usually reserved for evil Nazi Germans with saber scars or inscrutable Orientals.
