Special Ops Lioness S01E06 720p WEB-DL x265
If you're happy to suspend your disbelief, and enjoy TV and/or movies for the way a story can take you out of the real world, this seems like a pretty powerful series so far. A large part of which is simply because the actors are so good at what they do. I don't mind that a key character is easily able to take down a trained soldier three or four times her body weight, even after being tortured. Like a knight defeating a dragon in a fairytale, it feels good when she does *because* it wouldn't happen in real life. And in the meantime, the show doesn't shy away from tying up its characters in the struggles of daily life. Helping with character development, while still serving mostly as a backdrop to the main plot, one character, for example, is struggling to cope in her marriage and with parenting difficulties due to overwork. While nothing groundbreaking, the acting is so strong that I get drawn in completely. If it ends up having a solid finish by the end of the season, it'll be a standout for me this year. Looking forward to seeing where it goes.
