  • Strike Back

    I just saw this on Cinamax and it is good. And I read in the newspapers it's a British Import. Well to all our friends across the pond keep sending us good shows like that one .

    I saw the first episode and was impressed. It's a radical departure from the usual British series!

      This is actually the second season (which is being called Strike Back: Project Dawn; the first was a UK production only, filmed in South Africa, which I saw in the UK. The first one was based, loosely, on a novel by "Chris Ryan", one of the SAS troopers who took part in the Bravo Two Zero mission.

      If Richard Armitage gets his shirt off, don't be too surprised - it's seemingly a contractual obligation with him.

        Okay thanks for the info. We just got to see this one and if it is good we might just get the first season also. And I know who Chris Ryan is also he did a reality show on the Discovery Channel here . Where he spent time with a lot of the famous police special forces around the world and observed how they did there work . In some cases he was asked to join them in their training and he was always given one of their patches at the end of each show I hope you get too see that show because they were good also .

          I just watched this today and I really enjoyed the first two episodes! It reminds me of a mix of Burn Notice, those Bourne movies, and even Rainbow Six.

          Good stuff! Can't wait for episode three tonight!

          Here's a trailer:

          Burke's Joystick: Because Edmund Burke would have been a gamer.

              I've been watching and enjoying this series. First Skinimax series that I've ever followed.

                Is that your nickname for that channel; like I call HBO "Here's Breasts Often"?

                  I, for one, am getting sick and tired of these cable shows becoming soft porn all the time. The sex and nudity in season 1 of Game of Thrones just cheapened the whole series for me. The same goes for Strike Back. It adds nothing and just limits the potential audience.

                  What a world....

                    I just saw the latest episode last night, and it was excellent. It's a far cry from British TV series of old.

                        Don't blame the networks - blame the audiences they have to sell the programs to. Like it or not, and I agree with you that it's far too much, it creates ratings for series that would never make become mainstream hits otherwise.

                          No, I poached the label from elsewhere!

                          Still, I'm really enjoying the show. I don't know if I've seen all of the episodes yet. The last one that I've seen had some team members meeting up with a bad guy under a bridge. Great ending to a show. I've been told that the real-life SAS can operate in the same manner.

                              Second (or rather third) season confirmed.

                              I now call this Bare Back.
