    There was one series on TV here, then it went to cable/satellite, which I don’t have. It didn’t seem that bad to me back then, I must admit, and I thought it portrayed the embedded sleepers as complex individuals. Of course, it fell into the old trap of presuming that they preferred their life in the West, and didn’t want to give up the ‘luxuries’ of life in the USA. But I haven’t seen it all, so I am not really qualified to comment further.
    Best wishes, Pete.
