TV/Streaming:

Fauda, Season 3 Trailer (video, left), Netflix

CS Commentary: Fauda is Hebrew/Arabic for ‘chaos.’ It is the term that the Israeli counter-terrorist unit uses when things deteriorate into a ‘free-for-all’ on a mission inside the West Bank or Gaza. The first two seasons of this series, with English subtitles, were among the best series that Netflix has offered, up there with Narcos and Narcos: Mexico. Here’s hoping that Season 3, which is released Thursday, April 16, will be the same. CS Grade, first 2 seasons: A (where A is the highest grade possible)

When Will Fauda, Season 4, Be On Netflix? The Israeli Series Is A Smash Hit, Johnny Brayson, Bustle

Could Alleged FBI Misconduct Save Lori Loughlin? Joey Garrison, USA Today

Caliphate, Official Trailer, Netflix, Metakritik TV

CS Commentary: This is sort of a Swedish ‘Homeland’, though the female protagonist can’t hold a candle to Carrie, the main character of that series. Still, this is great viewing and gives the viewer insight into Radical Islamist practices relative to brainwashing and seducing young Western, Muslim girls into leaving their lives of comfort and traveling to Islamic lands to become Muslim brides, as well as the terrorism strategies and practice of Radicals as they attempt to attack Western societies. Still, ultimately, it’s too influenced by the last four decades or more of realist French cinema to be completely satisfying as entertainment. CS Grade: B+
