Storyline

John Tavner doesn't really fit in with his quirky colleagues at the industrial piping corporation where he works. They don't really know much about him, but what they don't realize is that his life has been anything but mundane. To prevent Iran from going nuclear, he has assumed a fake persona as an average businessman when in reality he is actually a highly skilled intelligence officer, who took the piping job because of the routine business trips to Luxembourg, and because the job is secluded and too dull to be noticed. Unfortunately for him a European cop is at his heels trying to discover who he is, his incessantly grim and nervous coworker Mr. Icabod has figured out that he isn't who he says, and Steven, a chubby employee with a recent brain injury, is starting to remember a horrible act which John may have inflicted.

Trivia

In S1 E6, when Peter Icabod is being interviewed by the police in Luxembourg, he mentions that his full name is "Peter Cassius Icabod". The middle name Cassius means "hollow", so it was chosen as a sort of in-joke reference to the fictional book/folktale 'The Legend of Sleepy Hollow', since in the show Peter often gets made fun of for looking like Icabod Crane.

Goofs

In the opening scene, the pipeline company executives grill the main character about his knowledge of pipelines. The head honcho mispronounces the type of weld he is asking about - a fillet weld - which is correctly pronounced "fill-it". See more »

Quotes

Dennis: [John's eyes go wide in horror when he sees Dennis putting the caption "Capture A Guy" on his cell-phone's schedule] Hey, don't put Capture A Guy!
Dennis: Well I've gotta put something!
John Tavner: Fine, just write "CG" or something.
Dennis: Good coding!

Patriot is in the comedy category, but it is a blend of drama and comedy, in nearly equal parts. It has many laugh out loud moments, but so does the Mad Men, to a lesser degree. Patriot is extremely personal, thought provoking, and touching.

This is absolutely the most artistic show of the new breed of excellent television in recent years. It's far above most of Amazon's offerings. I love this show. Every aspect is top-notch: the acting, the direction, the script, the cinematography. IMO this could be the best new show of the last year or two.

I sincerely hope Amazon renews for a second season.
