Strike Back, Starting Soon. Who Will be Watching

I think we're just a week or two from the new season beginning. I'm looking forward to seeing where they go next. Anybody else watching/enjoying this show?

I saw something about it on Cinemax last night. They might have mentioned that it would be starting out on the season premier night with two episodes. That would be cool.

Didn't Cinemax start with Season 2?

Season 1 aired on Sky One in Britain.

That being said.

Season 1 was great TV.

Season 2 was good TV with nudity.

Looking forward to the next installment.

Yet another data point towards "Skinemax"

I did not know that. I thought this past season was an "American reboot" of the show and S1 in England was something else. Am I right? or do I need to go pull S1 from TVTorrent?

The "real" UK Season One was the adventures of John Porter, who we see ending when the US "Season One" starts.

I predict Strike Back will have lots of automatic weapons fire and necked women, with the new Colonel barking "Report!" during both.

Never heard of this show but sounds really good. Have both series and the book now so will cram them in this weekend. I'm a big fan of Richard Armitage from Spooks so looking forward to it. Thanks for the heads up.

I like this show because there is a lot of action but there is also some good drama and enough character development to make it interesting. Several characters with different motive and layers, and just overall a good time.

According to the internets, the first incarnation on Sky One in England was just called Strikeback and had one 6 episode season in May 2010.
It featured Andrew Lincoln (The Walking Dead) in all his British accented-ed glory.

Strikeback on Cinemax (and Sky One) was Strikeback: Project Dawn and had one 10 episode season in the fall of 2011.
It featured a bunch of people I've never heard of prior.

It was more like a continuation than a reboot.

Don't know what the new season will be called.
ETA, found it, it will be called Strikeback: Vengeance.

This is a pretty good show - surprised there isn't more interest in it.

I really like this show, but I watched them all pretty much in a weekend. I didn't even think to look for a thread.

We should start a whole season thread for the next one.
