It's rare to find a series with such an impeccable pedigree as HBO's The sympathizer. It is based on a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel co-created by author-director Park Chan-wook and features Robert Downey, Jr. in four supporting roles. Set during and after the Vietnam War, the series follows a man (Hoa Xuande) who juggles a position in the South Vietnamese army and a man as a spy for the North Vietnamese. But is it a worthy adjustment?
