"TYRANT" RETURNS TO FX THIS SUMMER

I spent a considerable amount of 2014 telling anyone who would listen to do themselves a solid and tap into Season 1 of "Tyrant" on FX. At least 5.1 million viewers a week knew what I knew, in that something special was brewing on the FX network.

Everything about "Tyrant's" premise I found to be bold and awe-inspiring in terms of the potential for character development and depth of script.

The audacity of the writers to have the creative bravery to develop characters centered around radical Islamic culture if not brilliant, is certainly admirable and creatively refreshing.

Even though Tyrant is set on mythical Middle Eastern soil, the series has everything Americans have been trained to appreciate in a good TV series including: sex; arrogant and viciously-violent men; homosexuality; beautiful-manipulative women; and of course, the never-ending quest for money and power. All components of a successful TV series' DNA, taught to Hollywood by the success of "The Sopranos" and "The Wire".

Do yourselves a favor this summer and get a "Tyrant" in your life. Well, at least once a week.
