Editorial Reviews

After 17 years in captivity, three Israeli soldiers are finally returned to their families: one of them in a coffin. The first season of this award-winning and controversial series follows the former captives and their families as they try to reconnect with each other. But the adjustment is painful, and when secrets of the years gone by begin coming to light, betrayal, resentment and suspicion threaten to destroy their lives all over again.


This deeply moving, intense and thrilling series was adapted into the acclaimed drama Homeland.

Riveting, written by the author of TV's Homeland series. This is even better. But be aware, it is in Hebrew with English sub-titles.

One of the best television series. Homeland which I love is based on this Israeli series. Prisoner Of War has excellent acting, directing, and writing.
Each episode leaves you with wanting more and more. It's different from Homeland but just as high quality of a series. After each episode there is a commentary by the director which I would highly recommend. It's easy to miss things because of the subtitles. This really helps to fill in any missing pieces. The commentary also helps you have a better understanding of life in Israel and how connected everybody is to the military. If you are looking for and intelligent TV thriller that you can't stop watching then this series is for you.

Brilliant T.V. Just observing the subtle variations in plot and theme between this and it's remake, Homeland, is worth the time. But in its own right this show is much better, much grittier and much more informative. This is probably the only Israeli T.V. show I have ever seen and it is fully informative about the state of consciousness "on the ground" in that country. The people, the difficulties, the way of life seem to be beautifully shown. Very informative, moving and altogether spellbinding. The second season, in which I'm now in the middle of, is even better. A+++

Love this series so much...more dark and psychological than Homeland. Definitely one of my favorites.

This series is so incredible. I had to watch this in a marathon session because I couldn't wait for the next episode. This series is very raw and it is interesting to see a different point of view. It makes Homeland look like a cakewalk.
One of the wonderful things I found is that a tv serie/show/ or film can be incredible without the 'Hollywood' of it all. The actors, locations and the fact the characters don't have fancy make up, cars or homes is a plus. The actors carry this series with incredible emotion.
Don't let the fact that it is in subtitles scare you off.

By Cary B. Barad on January 15, 2015
The series :"Homeland" is based on a 2010 Israeli TV series--HaTufim ("The Abductees)"--recently released on DVD in this country as "Prisoners of War". It's a Hebrew language film with English subtitles. There are two seasons. I found them at my local library. The plot is only loosely related to "Homeland"; i.e. the idea of return from captivity. In this case 3 Israeli POWs. A solid drama with insights into contemporary Israeli society--without the endless twists of" Homeland." Binge worthy, May also be cringe worthy in some spots given flashbacks of unbearable torture inflicted in a Syrian prison.

Homeland was great - but it is like a "walk in the park" compared to this Israeli series.
Prisoners of War is not for the faint-hearted because it's much too powerful and suspenseful. Keeps you guessing every minute what's going to happen next. Just when you think you've got it all figured out, you find out you were wrong!
Season 1 was great (mainly character development) and Season 2 exceeded all expectations (mainly suspense thriller). Sure hope there's going to be a Season 3.
