    I Love Strike Back and will always, The 1st season was kick ass and so is the highly anticipated 2nd season, I am already for the 3rd season, I wish there were more tv series like this one. Keep on truckin Strike Back.

    Excellent start to the season. The addition of Rhona Mitra is already paying off. I honestly don't get where some reviewers are calling this show a "guilty pleasure". Just because it's an action series doesn't make it any less credible, I guess you'd say, than something like Breaking Bad or Mad Men. If those shows could get away with what Cinemax can I bet they would be...

    Fun even when it's ludicrous, forgivable when the clich├ęs fly.

    Lots of location shots give Strike Back an unusually acute sense of realism, and the show wisely spends more time with the boys in the field than with the command unit back home.

    Where it truly excels is in showing the emotional costs paid by the super soldiers doing their jobs and by the witnesses and/or victims of all the mayhem.
