There's an immense level of compassion here, which should ultimately prove rewarding for anyone who digs in.

The strange case of a narrative that might have been curated carefully with its investigative beats, but so little appears to happen in each episode that a necessary tension is lost.

Complicated drama centers on West Bank murders.

Aug 28, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Harrowing, heartbreaking, and hard to turn away from.

Aug 23, 2019 | Full Review…

The first two episodes at least suggest the series will be rewarding in the sense that it will provide a better understanding of the complexities at play without Our Boys itself serving any political agenda beyond the truth.

Trying to portray the intricacies of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in a TV show is always difficult, but Our Boys is a compelling fictionalization of a very complicated story.

Our Boys is paced with a punishing slowness... But it rewards with tough insight.

Aug 14, 2019 | Full Review…

This 10-episode HBO series puts faces on a conflict often seen -- especially in the U.S. -- from a distant aerial view, bringing the loss, pain and senseless circle of violence achingly home.

Our Boys puts a human face on an age-old conflict, asking if justice is ever possible in a world where young boys are used as tragic pawns.

Aug 12, 2019 | Full Review…

"Our Boys" is done in such a thoughtful and sensitive manner that it demands to be viewed by as large an audience as possible, both locally and globally.

    Very Good! Dont listen to the hate from the Zionists, they dont want you to watch this show and see the truth. Watch it and make a picture yourself, dont be a sheep :)

    HBO has always had a Liberal Agenda, so I'm not surprised they glossed of the deaths of three Israeli Jew's, and focus on the exclusively on the Palestinian victim. They portray Israel's as racist and vengeful. The directors and producers, so whom are Jews themselves obviously had an agenda. Boycott HBO! I wouldn't surprised if Hamas or the Irian Mullah Regime payed money under the table to produce this trash.

    What a piece of antisemitic crap. Leftardism at its worst!
  • Sep 05, 2019
    Outstanding shows the best and the worst on both sides
  • Sep 04, 2019
    Aside from the general political left leaning bias, this series is SLOOOOOOOOW. Not worth the time.
