Tyrant is clearly trying to understand the desperation and horror in places like Syria and Yemen without trivializing that desperation.

And while this drama isn't as tight as those others in their best days, it's still extremely intriguing to watch a political crisis that won't be solved by some Deus ex Americana.

I just wish the execution was better. I can enjoy the show as a soap but I'd enjoy it a lot more if it could be taken as a serious drama. It's not there yet.

In what world is leaving a drugged man alone in the middle of the desert with no food, water, or shelter not a death sentence?

At its best, it's a family drama in an unusual setting. And after some tweaking, a more entertaining one.

Lack of nuance is a huge problem for Tyrant, a tragedy considering the depiction of a foreign region's struggles is a pure exercise in nuance.

This project from Gideon Raff and Howard Gordon suddenly exhibits the potential to become a fairly entertaining one, with the disclaimer that the terrain still contains an abundance of storytelling sand traps.

Tyrant may be afraid to follow through with some of its most incendiary plot threads, but season two already feels fully-formed, less of a mirage of ideas and promises like last year and more of an actual, richly realized vision.
