East West 101, Season 2 DVD
The critically acclaimed, award-winning drama returns with new perils for Detective Zane Malik (Don Hany, Serangoon Road), a Muslim Arab living in post-9/11 Australia. After a deadly car bomb goes off in a Sydney suburb, fear and suspicion thrive as the community blames it on Islamic extremists. However, Malik is not convinced it was a terrorist attack, and he joins a joint task force led by Agent Richard Skerritt (Gerald Lepkowski, The Death of Stalin). The investigation throws Malik into a high-stakes undercover mission targeting a suspected arms-dealer, but the job takes him away from his family and even threatens their safety. Meanwhile, Malik’s boss, Inspector Patricia Wright (Susie Porter, Janet King), deals with a personal crisis that stirs up painful memories from her past.
I loved the first season. Season 2 is as good, if not better. The stories are more developed, more complicated, and more nuanced. Sunny Australia showed from more complicated angle, the angle of immigrants, race, religion, and tolerance.
This is an awesome program! One of the best. What makes it more interesting is because the main character and his wife are muslim. The other characters are also interesting. Good writing and acting. This series should be brought back!
