The Spy (Netflix) S: Sacha Baron Cohen -- premieres 9/6/19



The Spy is an upcoming television miniseries written and directed by Gideon Raff and Max Perry based on the life of Israel's top Mossad spy Eli Cohen in Syria, to be portrayed by Sacha Baron Cohen.
Looks very interesting, though he does look like Borat in a few of those scenes.

This has been getting pretty good reviews especially for Sacha... 83% RT. I'll take a look after I watch the first episode of Titans S2 later.

Watched the first 3 episodes yesterday. Without knowing anything about the true story, it's very interesting so far.

I have watched so many documentaries, movies, etc., it seems to me everyone in Israel was/is a spy.
It makes me wonder who WASN'T?

Just finished this up, and found it very good. I hadn't heard of Cohen (the real spy, not Sascha Baron), but read up on him after watching. What an amazing individual.

It was a little hard to get over the Borat typecast, but Baron Cohen actually did a really good job in this.
