Inspired by Three Days of the Condor, Sydney Pollack's 1975 political thriller, Condor follows young CIA analyst Joe Turner, whose idealism is tested when he stumbles onto a terrible but brilliant plan that threatens the lives of millions.

Currently in its second season.

Re: Condor [Action, Drama, Thriller]

I wasn't fully convinced after the first episode, but 70% through the first season I'm now hooked! cool If the spy/thriller genre is for you then I highly recommend checking this out.

And one thing is certain, they are not afraid to kill off cast members! big_smile

season 2 has been a snooze fest so far

The IMDb ratings for season 2 are almost as good as for season 1 so I'll watch it some day. smile

Re: Condor [Action, Drama, Thriller]

I thought Season 2 was OK, but the lack of subs in the Russian language scenes was frustrating. I can read Russian but translating live dialog is more difficult.

Spoiler

What's disappointing is that they've drawn back the scale of the overall plot. I understand they had to something different for this season, but after taking a years break I expected a lot more.

I've watched 2x1 + 2x2 since my last post here, and I still enjoy the show, but maybe a little bit less than season 1. You're right, the show feels a bit smaller so far. Still, I'm looking forward to the remaining episodes. smile

Re: Condor [Action, Drama, Thriller]

Just finished the 2nd Season and really enjoyed it. Was able to get some decent Russian speaking subs for all episodes from user SUB-ENTITLED on Subscene (https://subscene.com/u/1317754). Agree that it was certainly not the action-packed show that S1 was, but I thought S2 seemed much more realistic in terms of showing the spygame at work. I hope there is a S3 planned, although it's looking shaky since it switched from Audience to HBO.

Spoiler

I was pretty sure Deputy Director Reuel Abbott slipped Joe a usb with his confession at Gordo's funeral when he hugged him, maybe that will be a S3 plotl arc? Nice to see killer for hire Gabrielle turn up at the end.

Re: Condor [Action, Drama, Thriller]

Yeah, they take the spy game seriously, and I love that they integrated fun stuff like this (and not too much of it):

Ha, I was watching and thinking what others do in these bits, anyway, you are lucky that you don't understand original cringe texts in Russian, that was the only thing I did not enjoy, somebody needs to tell Americans to stop butchering Russian language big_smile

Aah, another cringe was that 1955 artwork on KGB HQ walls big_smile

Re: Condor [Action, Drama, Thriller]

I thought Season1 up to episode 5 was absolutely brilliant. After that, it went rapidly downhill, with ridiculous plot-line after ridiculous plot-line.

I managed to suspend utter disbelief until i'd finished the last episode of season1, but i won't be watching season 2.

Such a waste.

What do you mean? Did they not speak real Russian? Sounds real to me. cool

KGB HQ? I only saw the KGB outpost (in the US) so far (2x6). I've enjoyed the artwork there (and general feel of that place). I don't know if it's authentic, but it looked plausible (if maybe a little bit too expensive) enough to me. smile

I mean that outpost. Plausible? Maybe if Stalin is still alive big_smile It's like if CIA office would have an artwork how Trump is riding a bald eagle while shooting a machine gun big_smile

One of them was a Russian actor I think, at least there was no awful accent, but texts retarded as always, nobody speaks like that, stiff, weird phrasing, Google Translatish feel to it :-D And in this case a lot of them.

Oh, that surprises me. But since I don't understand Russian it also doesn't bother me. smile

I've now finished season 2. Great show! I really hope it'll be renewed.

Spoiler

The way Joe ended things with his (mole) friend... damn! Didn't see that coming. big_smile
