    Not a bad first episode. Some aspects are slightly cheesy but there seems to be some potential.

    On a side note, I noticed quite a bit of macro blocking during the episode. I've not noticed this on Cinemax before.

    I've recorded it, but haven't had time to watch yet. Hoping it will fill my 24 and Sleeper Cell void.

    I am getting a bit confused by IMDb. Is this the first episode, or the second seasons first episode?

    Yeah, IMDb didn't even list half the cast. Hoping the show replaces my Human Target fix. Enjoyed the first episode, will watch the second one tonight on MaxGo tonight assuming it looks OK from my iPad to my TV via Airplay.

    For all premium series, I use the VOD. The PQ is damn near perfect with less blocking.

    There was a six episode first series (season) that aired in Britain. So this is actually the second series, but the first season since HBO has been involved. The original star of the first series, Richard Armitage, took a role in The Hobbit and had to drop out of Strike Back.

    That is what I was picking up on. It made it seem like I was a season behind.

    I liked it a lot! Definitely action-packed. And unafraid to kill off actors, just like 24 and Sleeper Cell.

    Just finished watching the second episode. It was really good! I like the show. But the whole "giant conspiracy from within" is so overdone. But the action is good and the actors are hot!

    If anyone is interested, they are doing a special short series they are calling the "Prequel" to Strike Back. It begins the end of October and is about Porter, the one who was killed in the video (I think) in the first season.
