I've been picking through this, and it's really good, well worth the watch if you like spy thrillers and don't mind subtitles.  Because it's firmly set in history, and the real Yosi is in some undisclosed location still in witness protection, it makes it much more believable than your 'standard fair' spy thriller.

This is an interesting article on it:  https://www.timesofisrael.com/espionage … -bombings/

Sounds like something I'd like. I assume you requested it added?

I had no idea 'til you said that that there's a pending list on that page below all the added. Knowing I can ctrl-f on that page will save me some future submissions big_smile

Watched first episode. Seems like it'll be pretty good.

@Lighton, ya, I requested this show for next-episode after I wanted to add it to my next-episode watchlist and couldn't find it.

@mrverene I like the tone of the show, how the events aren't over dramatized but are genuine and real.  Due to reading subtitles though, I haven't finished yet, it's not spectacle, but more of an engrossing slow burn.

Looks good, I can't wait to add it to my watchlist. How long does it usually take a requested show to get added?

Re: Yosi, The Regretful Spy [Drama, Spy Thriller, Spanish]

Every time I've requested one it's been almost immediate, so I wouldn't think it'd be long.

Two eps down now

It's neat the way the show sort of operates through cognitive dissonance - you're used to rooting for the spy in this type of show and the narrative is set up with him as protagonist so you find yourself nervous for him when he's about to be caught, etc. then you remember he's a complete loon and you've just spent the last few minutes basically unconsciously rooting for some weirdo on 4chan

Finished. I liked it.

Spoiler

Was thinking it'd be a one season and done though. Not sure the remaining bits we don't have much info on are enough to fill a whole season.
