OUR BOYS
August 26, 2019  | By David Bianculli

HBO, 9:00 p.m. ET

 
Our Boys, on the other hand, is getting even stronger as it goes along, because it’s giving equal time to both sides, and both perspectives, in retelling the tale of a series of kidnapping and murders of young men in and around the West Bank. First, young Israeli hitchhikers were abducted, then killed, while wending their way home – and then, apparently in retaliation, another violent group began targeting and abducting young Palestinians. Our Boys is told not only from the point of view of the detective team investigating the crimes, but from parents and friends of the victims and so on. The miniseries is subtitled, the setting is unusual and evocative for American television, and the narrative keeps surprising – as with last week’s cliffhanger, which lent a new element to the story of the latest abducted Palestinian young man.
