Yesterday, out of the blue I received a phone call from Lebanese actor, Ahmad Az-Zayn. Ahmad Az-Zayn did comedic roles with Shushu, and later had many TV and movie roles. I liked him most in the TV serials As-Sanawat Ad-Da'i`ah, which was brilliantly directed by Samir Nasri (the later movie critic for An-Nahar). He said some nice things to me about my articles in Al-Akhbar and asked me to watch his new series on NBN-TV. I did watch two episodes of the series: they are politically strong: about the neglect of the poor, and about the way Hariri family corrupted Lebanon and its press. But I feel that the series need more dramatic developments otherwise it would be too preachy.
