Rubicon Keep the Ends Out S01E03 (AMC)

Rubicon intertitle via Wikipedia

There is so much about this show that is really interesting. First of all, the main characters all work in a think tank. I find that an interesting line of work. They are basically paid to think about certain problems. It all looks collegiate, but there is more than meets the eye, as the protagonist discovers.

Warning: spoilers ahead.

I really enjoyed this episode. It wasn’t disappointing and I can’t wait to see more of this show. It’s surprising how good I found this. It’s actually hard to describe, but basically, a think tank considers national security investigations and are asked to find out more about them. It’s also got to do with espionage, money trails, and other conspiracies.
