Hinton, WV  — Exactly one year ago today, I reviewed a Showtime series called “Sleeper Cell” that knocked me – a diehard “24” fan – out of my chair. The second season began Sunday, Dec. 10, 2006 and continues through the end of this week. Don’t miss it.

Back in the second season are Michael Ealy as Darwyn, an undercover FBI agent who has infiltrated a radical Islamic terror cell in Los Angeles. Farik, the head of the cell, was captured at the end of last season as the Federal agents – with the help of Darwyn – foiled a plot to blow up Dodger Stadium. Darwyn’s love interest from the first season returns; she’s Gayle Bishop, a single mom played by the very attractive and talented University of Virginia graduate Melissa Sagemiller.

Farik, played by the Israeli actor Oded Fehr, is being held in a CIA prison, where he is being interrogated to find out more information about the surviving members of the cell – information that Darwyn doesn’t have access to. Below are the episodes of this outstanding miniseries, which will probably be repeated on Showtime. The episodes air at 9 p.m. eastern time, with a repeat at 11 p.m.

Caution, this series contains scenes of violence and torture, along with brief nudity. It’s an outstanding television event.
