    Somewhat interesting information. But information that has been told over and over again. They spend more time telling about a tax against America or espionage against America rather than successes of what America has achieved. The narrator's voice is terrible. It sounds like a guy in his late teens whose voice hasn't totally changed yet. Also he can't pronounce nuclear correctly. And it leaves you asking what the hell is America doing. Because apparently China and Russia are mopping the floor with American intelligence. If you want to see something about spies and have absolutely and completely nothing else better to do, this might be worthwhile.

    The first few were kind of interesting, I watched them a few months ago, but I gave up when I watched the Clandestine Collection episode. They (their single source actually) painted Edward Snowden as a spy who gave information to Russia and China. Then when describing a Polish spy during the Cold War who was discovered and escaped, they said he was extradited to a safe country. Wow, that is literally the opposite of extradition. They defined drones as an "unmanned aerial vehicle without a human pilot." As opposed to an unmanned vehicle WITH a human pilot?? I quit watching the show after that.

    Surprisingly, this series wasn't completely skewed to make America the automatic hero. It looked at sky technology and tactics from various countries. Overall, the series is fascinating and doesn't deserve all the hate this website is giving it.

    Horrible. Want to watch stock footage while listening to off-brand Seth Green talk about a western-skewed perspective of spy craft? This is for you then. I absolutely love this topic and I'll even put up with Western bias if its produced well. Compared to the documentaries and books you can access about this topic, this is a complete waste of time.

    Narrator is the Worst! Mispronounces so many words, which is incredibly distracting. "Nu- Cu- Lar" for Nuclear !? Really? No editor, director or producer could catch that?!

    Wide ranging examination of primarily clandestine intelligence gathering (though occasionally assassination) techniques used by a variety of government agencies worldwide. The series does a good job of detailing a wealth of examples both historical and current but it would have benefited from more interviews with foreign sources, instead it relies on a number of retired members of American intelligence agencies, private cybersecurity executives and historian Keith Melton, a co-creator and executive producer of the series whose expertise and perspective is presented in a neutral, informative fashion. Describing Spycraft as "propaganda" is inaccurate since it sticks mostly to facts already in the public domain and doesn't spend any time on politics unless it's used to frame a particular technique. There's nothing particularly sensational revealed (in fact it can seem a little dry and repetitive for anyone aware of current events) but it can be an eye-opening experience for the uninitiated. The covert technologies involved and custom fabricated devices are marvels of ingenuity and engineering. It may make viewers a little paranoid, but if anyone is still under the illusion that privacy is at all a realistic proposition, the Spycraft series will dispel them of that notion. "Spycraft" is a one-stop-shop overview of its title subject matter, recommended for anyone interested in the nuts and bolts of geopolitics and the cloak and dagger technologies that enable governments to keep track of their adversaries, foreign or domestic, "friends" or enemies alike.

    Well I thought is was amazing. ;)

    Put this on because it sounded interesting, but it turns out to be pretty bald-faced CIA propaganda. A few interesting historical incidents punctuated by ex CIA officers telling the audience that the communists and/or the terrorists are coming to get you. Also the narrator sounds bored and struggles to pronounce ‘nuclear' as well as many non-American names and locations. Your Republican uncle might like it.

    I'm sorry, what is the point of this series ? The series discloses nothing. Circumspection and supposition do not a series make? They don't give anything away and why would they ? That's the point of Spycraft. Innumerate, overweight, retired, bit part players in cheap suits. Yet more subscriber money chucked at nonsense.

    Slick visuals and well-narrated the show is full of inaccuracies, half truths, and a constant drum beat for war with Russia, North Korea, etc. It became tiresome by episode 3 when they absurdly claimed that Maria Butina was some sort of deeply entrenched mata hari that influenced the 2016 presidential election. Style over substance for this show. I wouldn't be surprised if this show was funded or produced by elements within the US that want to continue endless war. It's pure propaganda.
