Review this tv show
Feb 3, 2018The reboot of Strike Back is total rubbish.
The characters are uninteresting and there is zero chemistry between any of them.
The episodes are by the numbers and really just boring. It feels like the budget version of the original series. Bring back Stonebridge and Scott, your series needs you.

While season 1 through 4 went deep in the characters one by one, and took their time. This is why I would rate it a 3, due to the lack of character close-ups and personalities of complete different origins… Expand
Based on the six episodes Cinemax sent out for review in advance of Friday night’s premiere, it’s in many ways the Strike Back fans knew and loved the first time out. ...
