Fauda end of season 2

A wild ending indeed but I’m coming around to the idea that the Jewish characters in this show are simply modern versions of the schlemiel (unlucky bungler) and schlimazal (very unlucky bungler) of Yiddish theater.

They are mostly fuckups whose violent schemes tend to fall apart half way through and they are lucky to escape with their lives. And sometimes don’t. Still, the unluckiness also afflicts their Palestinian counterparts, who likewise have plans that oft go awry.

So the see-how-much-alike-we-are subtext still works and still attracts.

  1. Well, and you thought that your Fart, Barf and Itch are exceptional?
    We too have our share of glory 😉
