"Strike Back" Cinemax Series?

I just saw an advertisement for it on F.B.

Is it any good? Tons of sweet firearms love in it, like fully kitted-out ARs & AKs.

Anyone seen any of the episodes? Evidently it's into it's 4th season, and I've never heard of it.

It's excellent I've followed it for a couple seasons. Unfortunately I'm about to lose it because I can't justify the expense of Cinemax for that 1 show any longer. I need to research if there is another way to follow it.

Cinemax? Is everyone naked in every scene?

It originally started as a BBC series that Cinemax picked up. I've watched the first series (or season, here in the states) and the first 4 or so episodes of the second series.

The first series is better than what I've seen so far in the second. Honestly, Cinemax coming in made changes to include making one of the heroes American. I thought it was unnecessary, but they're paying the bills.

Pretty decent show, better than most military shows on right now. I'm sure there are mistakes with it, but I watch for the stories, not to nitpick.

Also, the first series does co-stars Andrew Lincoln, aka Rick Grimes from The Walking Dead.

I would recommend watching it, definitely. Give it a shot, the worst that can happen is you don't like it and stop watching, right?

You must have missed the thread about this series that I posted a couple of months back.

Indeed I must have.

I can't imagine how, but I obviously have.

Great series! I've got to catch up since I've only seen the first season. It has been discussed here before, but not often.

Cinemax is replaying the original series as Strikeback Origins
http://tvline.com/2013/09/06/cinemax...ndrew-lincoln/

It is a lot less Skinemaxxy.

The last season had some good action sequences but wasn't as good as the others. Rhona Mitra leaving the series burned me, but my word! I hadn't realized just how smoking hot Sgt. Richmond was through three seasons until the finale!

Sgt. Richmond definitely is a looker. I look forward to seeing her flop some nungas.

The other blondie chick that dated the SAS dude, and later on got blown up by the IRA guy...she was damn sexy too.

Actually, lots of sexy chicks in this series, especially the Mossad chick.

Great show. The first two seasons are better than the last one but they all are good if you like military themed programming.

I can't wait to see the prequel that is starting soon.

Banshee is also good from cinemax.

The first season (technically the second season, I guess) did some pretty ridiculous things in order to get the american guy into bed with girls, but it is a fun show. I dropped cinemax and haven't been able to watch this latest season, but I'll catch it on blu-ray.

I can only hope the Starz pirate show is as "adulty" as this series and Spartacus. I'm totally digging this new wave of adult action shows. Anyone watched "Rogue"? The one with Thandie Newton. It looked silly from the trailers and I've never even heard of the Audience channel (a DirectTv production?) but I caught a bit of it and it looked pretty graphic and explicit. "Hunted" was ok, but moved soooo slow, didn't finish the season. Was excited for the space marine show the Spartacus guys were pitching, but heard it didn't get picked up :(

I bought the first two seasons last month and only yesterday got around to starting to watch. Its similar to 24 or The Unit, but its missing some of the operator tactics and the dialogue is cheesy. Plots are weak, but I won't stop watching unless the sex scenes decrease in frequency.

Aren't you the one who liked Pacific Rim, though?

This show is great. I think the tactical action is spot on, weapons are spot on as well. Armorer does a great job outfitting them for various missions.

AND it has a lot of hot chicks; even some lesbo action this season. Full nude scenes. Think of 24 or the Unit, but replace all the lame scenes of Chloe or the Unit wives with naked hot chicks getting railed and that's pretty much it.

Best show on TV in my opinion.
