A suspenseful drama that shows the dark underbelly of political intrigue, the insidious seduction of the young into religious fanaticism and terrorism, and the effect of both on communities, families and individuals. Well scripted and superbly acted, this is a must see for connoisseurs of political thrillers.
I loved Archie Panjabi in The Good Wife and I love her even more in Next of Kin. She is brilliant in this mini-series and so are the rest of the cast. Thought provoking, a must watch!!!
Good show I was amazed good acting sad but really good
Engaging and well made show!
Sucks you in from the get go. A thriller that isn’t so convoluted you can’t figure out what’s going on.
