A Stylish and Entertaining New Series
13 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

STRIKE BACK is indeed on a DVD as evidenced here, but August 12, 2011 introduced the series STRIKE BACK for the television audiences here in the USA and the first episode is impressive, promising a well-made series to come. The story is not all that original and not having read Chris Ryan's novel on which it is based, judging whether or not it is true to the book is not possible. But basically this is another team of tough but lovable good guys working for the British Intelligence on various missions - the mission for the first episode deals with a soldier John Porter (Richard Armitage) from the British group who is held captive by the Pakistanis who send videos to the headquarters to release their prisoners. Headquarters included some fine actors: Sgt Julia Richmond (Michelle Lukes) and Colonel Grant (Amanda Mealing) and Sinclair (Rhashan Stone) - with a little help from an Indian agent played by Jimi Mistry - and the front fighting man Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) who manages to find the renegade womanizer and brilliant soldier Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) to protect against a discovered terrorist attack on the New Delhi Hotel. It is action packed, full of killing and explosions and the requisite steamy sex scenes to attract all audiences who dote on action programs. The difference in this series is the relationships among the actors/characters in the forces. They are all fine actors, all are eye candy, and all have a sense of perspective that gives them credibility. It seems that they will be an entertaining and clever team to watch in action. Looks like a good series for the summer! Grady Harp
