TYRANT
July 29, 2014  | By David Bianculli

FX, 10:00 p.m. ET

 
Each week, it seems, watching this series becomes an exercise in “compare and contrast”: Namely, to compare the scripted insurgency and violence and unrest on the screen, in this drama about a fictional Middle Eastern country, with what’s happening in real life, and shown on the news, the same week. So far, it’s been sufficiently tumultuous to shift this show’s on-location production base from Tel Aviv to Istanbul. In other words, Tyrant can’t shoot in Tel Aviv, because real-life combatants are shooting there.
