Solid action TV series not for the faint hearted
9 March 2017 | by georgeszaslavskySee all my reviews

I didn't have the chance to watch the TV series when it was on TV, so I bought it on DVD. First of all, the cast whether it concerns the first or the second season is solid and the acting is excellent. I have also discovered some Canadian as well as American actors and actress that I have never heard of before. The series tells the story in the first season about Elijah Kane former CIA and black ops agent who is now a member of the SIU (special intervention unit) of the Seattle PD.His team is composed of Mason, Radner, Juliet and Sarah who among the episodes catch and kill bad guys (drug dealers, Nazis, gang members, mafiosis, scum).Nicolai, one of the guys Kane caught will be the trigger of the attack on Kane's precinct at the end of the season 1 killing two of his best friends and partners Juliet and Radner.At the beginning of the season 2, we see Kane bury his friends and retiring from the police, in order to go undercover for the CIA and work with Marcus Mitchell, who will later be proved to be a sell out and to have betrayed Kane.He forms a new team with Sarah, Simms, Garcia and Finch with the help of his friend Castillo who recruited the last two members for him. Mason will get killed in the beginning of season2 by the ghost. Over the episodes in season 2, Kane kills the cuts outs and the expendables who might threaten him and his team, he also tracks who was at the head on the hit of his older team and discovers that Marcus was compromised and deals with another former army man called Lynch who wanted to steal a nuclear device.The end of the season 2 is sad because Castillo, one of Kane's oldest friends is critically wounded, Simms and Sarah wounded too, Garcia and the Russian female operative got arrested.And Kane says in his talkie walkie: "Operation went sideways. We got compromised." The fighting scenes are quite spectacular and for his age, Steven Seagal is in great shape, though his fighting style is very different from the one used by Van Damme, Scott Adkins, Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li but it is always enjoyable to see. The shooting scenes are also well done. There is not a single shooting and killing bad guys scene where Steven Seagal hasn't a 1911 pistol. I think this series deserves a second chance because it has a lot of potential and it is completely different. Watching on DVD is what I can recommend.
