I was going to post about this but didn't get a chance to.

It is a great show. Very interesting how his son Uday is just out of control and can do what he does and get away with it because he is his son. Also, interesting how Saddam lives in a fantasy world, where he thinks Iraq is great because 35 countries are invading during the gulf war.

What a great show. The end where he was hiding after the invasion was very interesting.

Also how dumb were his two generals who came back to Iraq after saying they will tell all about Iraq's WMD's. I mean how long did they work with Saddam and to think he would let them live, come on.

I thought it was pretty good. I was disappointed how they made his first wife the woman scorned, which she was, don't get me wrong, but that woman was as bloodthirsty as her husband. She fled the country and has been feeing ever since. Nobody knows where she is and she's wanted in Iraq for the same crimes as her husband. The second wife, I believe, is living in Beirut and isn't wanted for anything. I also wonder if Qusay's character was really as sympathetic as he appeared. They made Uday absolutely over the top, which he was, but I have to think that Qusay was equally as psycho, just not as flamboyant.

The guy who played Saddam and his ill fated son in law, Hussein, were fantastic and deserve emmys for their performances.

I liked how they showed how the CIA deserted the son in laws ... really nice of our government. The least they could have done is give them asylum somewhere.

I thought the addition of the little boy by the river was great. Wonder if that's true.
