HBO has a new comedy about a potential World War III breaking out in the Middle East. At the center of this drama is Alex Talbot, played by Jack Black, a low-level US embassy employee and CIA reject.

While The Brink is a comedy, it manages to take on current issues in a real way. There’s no shying away from difficult topics like military pay, or how diplomacy, politics, and military actions all work together to create a foreign policy.
