I find that actor who plays Jamal creepy
I know a lot of people are very unhappy of the casting of the lead with an Anglo and the Jamal actor is middle eastern and also the character is not supposed to be real attractive but still......creepy

The actor who plays Jamal was also in The Kingdom.... Very good!! Also, I don't have a problem with Basam being more white - their mother is British...

Yeah, Jamal is creepy. But, it's his wife that really gives me the creeps...so cold and ruthless.

I thought the casting fit when you look at their parents (one anglo, one arabic).

She's all about the preservation of herself. When she spit on Barry I was like d@mn girl, getting right to the point.

anyone watching this season?
I've gotten more interested lately
Is Jamar's wife finally growing a conscience? probably more self-preservation

I'm not caught up yet, but I still enjoy it, Jamal is soo good at being snake-like, must be his eyes. And speaking of eyes--the "new" son of Jamal has the most incredible ones, why can't I have lashes and brows like that? :pout:

I was wondering if Jamal's "new" son, the general, is middle eastern. I know there was quite a bit of controversy when they cast the lead with a non-middle eastern actor.

this show isn't one I have a passion for but it's getting more entertaining

I remember looking him up when he first appear on the show because he's kinda hot...Keon Alexander is his name IIRC. I was never able to determine where he was from.
