I don’t mind admitting that my nerves were completely shredded by the end of season 2 of the Israeli series “Tehran.” How bad did things get? Put it this way: Halfway through, I took a time-out and watched a documentary series about a near-meltdown at a U.S. nuclear power plant to decompress.

More on the latter in a moment, but first the return of the series that uses the Israeli-Iranian war – or whatever we’re calling this horrendous situation in which the two countries continue to clandestinely and not so clandestinely attack each other – as the backdrop for a story about a Mossad agent operating behind enemy lines in Tehran.
