5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, gripping and thoughtful, 4 July 2012
This review is from: Prisoners Of War \ Tv Series [DVD] (DVD)
How could anyone cope with being a prisoner of war for 17 long years? This is a gripping psychological thriller with very strong characters. I thought it would be exactly the same as the US series Homeland, but this is far superior. It is very well written and acted with believable and sympathetic characters that you really come to care about. I highly recommend it.

From what I have read the Colombian FARQ has held prisoners (hostages) for longer periods than this.

I liked Homeland a lot. I wouldn't say this series is superior; it's just that PRISONERS OF WAR is a drama, and HOMELAND is more of a thriller. They have similar subject matter but treat it very differently.

Anyway, I enjoyed both, very much, for different reasons.
