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

The guitar that John plays in the series is a Cole Clark; this is probably Michael Dorman's own guitar, as he hails from New Zealand and the maker is a well known antipodean luthier. See more »

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

The Brink on downers
8 January 2016 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Patriot is a dark comedy without the repartee of The Brink and because of the absence of the repartee it's more enjoyable - but not nearly as laughable. But it is fun in its own way and the cast - full of lots of familiar faces - executes their lines with solemnity. It took about 20 minutes to get into the pilot - I almost gave up but then voila! The show works its magic with every scene and after watching it the second time I was surprised by how much I missed the 1st time through. It's slow moving - mellow - Scotch drinkers will love it; Bud Lite imbibers won't be able to stick with it. Nothing goes as planned, everything goes wrong, and from there it just gets worse. Loved it!
