Product Overview

Set in post-9/11 America, SLEEPER CELL is a Showtime series that capitalizes on the country's fear and paranoia about terrorist organizations. Michael Ealy stars as Darwyn, an F.B.I. agent who has managed to infiltrate an Islamic terrorist cell in Los Angeles. Introduced to the group by leader Farik (Oded Fehr), Darwyn learns of their plans to attack Los Angeles, and faces some tough challenges as the time for the group to carry out the mission approaches. SLEEPER CELL is a brave piece of programming that resembles Fox's 24 in both its theme and its frantic pace. The entire first season is collected here.

Reviews
ReviewSource Variety.com
Review As with reports about the 9/11 hijackers, "Sleeper Cell" finds irony in how these jihadists "go native" while stationed here, from frequenting strip clubs to holding all-American outdoor barbecues. It's at the latter where Darwyn meets Gayle (Melissa Sagemiller), a single mom with whom he foolishly becomes romantically entangled. That rather cliched relationship, along with occasional heavy-handed snippets of dialogue, detract from the cat-and-mouse thriller that series creators Ethan Reiff and Cyrus Voris ("Bulletproof Monk") have constructed, which proves initially engaging but sags in the middle episodes.
