House of Saddam

I'm not interested in politics and I don't engage in political conversations with anyone but I must say this documentary is really something....

BBC has done a great job in portraying Saddam's personal life. The 4 episodes are catchy, easy to watch and engaging. The thing that I liked about the production of the documentary is that most of the cast are real arab actors, instead of Indians that seem to resemble us according to the whole world except us! Zay Said in LOST, he's so Indian yet he's accepted by the west as the macho Iraqi guy.

Watching House of Saddam, you can relate to the English Arabic accent, the names are pronounced correctly and I could only spot very few mistakes in the setting.

I have no knowledge in the political facts of the series thus I don't know about the accuracy of the content but what I can say is that it is a very interesting documentary and a must see.

Bravo BBC
