The enemy is here...

As a praiseworthy effort to enlighten viewers about peaceful practice of the Muslim faith and lesser-known aspects of domestic terrorism, Sleeper Cell was originally broadcast in late 2005, an 11 hour limited series owing plenty to familiar Hollywood thriller conventions.

Newly released prisoner Darwyn Al-Sayeed (Michael Ealy) is actually an undercover FBI agent and practicing Muslim, recruited to infiltrate a sleeper cell of Islamic radical extremists led by Farik (Oded Fehr), the mastermind of a Jihadist plot to detonate a chemical bomb in a crowded Los Angeles sports arena. Representing a broad spectrum of anti-American sentiments, Farik's band of holy warriors includes a hot-tempered Frenchman (Alex Nesic), a Bosnian chemist (Henri Lubatti), and a young Berkeley-born American (Blake Shields) with a post-military beef against the U.S. government. While clandestinely reporting to his FBI handler (James LeGros), Darwyn is forced into deadly circumstances that continuously threaten to blow his cover and get him killed. His ill-advised romance with a single mother (Melissa Sagemiller) poses further threat to the integrity of his investigation, which ultimately involves everyone from local LAPD detectives to the senior staff of the White House.

As the terrorist plot unfolds, Sleeper Cell is by turns intense, dramatically involving, and philosophically illuminating as Darwyn struggles to reconcile his undercover activities (which connect him to murder, obstruction of justice, conspiracy, etc.) and his passionate devotion to Islam as a peaceful religion...

This one (the first season) is excellent.

The second season was rubbish though.

Heat added.

Agreed... great deal and great season... the second one (not released in the UK to my knowledge) suffered badly from what looked like budget cuts. I don't know the story behind it being so bad but it was poor, where as this season is a must have.

enjoyed this a great deal when it was on TV - definitely worth this.

Second season was aired in the UK.

I quite enjoyed it, but the first was far superior. Great deal.

Well worth a punt - great series - 2nd season wasn't as good but I still enjoyed it

excellent find, great series this one defintely worth the cash

wow I watched this. It's pretty below the radar but the first season at least was excellent. 24-ish but a bit more grown up.

quite enjoyable series. worth a punt at £4

Wow always wanted to watch this thanks for the heads up and what an excellent price ;-)
i'm Britsh Born Muslim btw
