Sleeper Cell
On the very climactic finale of

Sleeper Cell, Darwyn and the FBI are able to stop a massive attack on Dodger Stadium, as well as simultaneous attacks on Yankee Stadium and a baseball field in D.C. Phew! But they really left this miniseries open for a second installment. Farik and Co. can't go to trial without showing that the government condoned Darwyn's involvement with the murders, and "Steve," or Ilija, escaped without being captured. All in all, I did enjoy this series, but it is heavy stuff to watch, especially when paired with the nightly news. But the show wasn't all a downer. I did get to enjoy Ilija's rousing rendition of 

A Tribe Called Quest's "I Left My Wallet in El Segundo." Oh, but did mean old Farik really have to send tickets to Gayle and Markus so that they'd be offed during the gassing of Dodger Stadium? Sure, Darwyn and Gayle's relationship was in conflict with keeping Darwyn's focus on his main mission, but still. Especially since Farik jumped when he got a phone call from his wife saying she was in town, he's clearly in love, yet willing to sacrifice himself anyway. I guess that's why he's the bad guy. And I thought it was extra interesting that the ringleader, who specifically told his men to avoid being captured at all costs, was the first one caught, and is now suffering in captivity, awaiting his fate.
