Good news and bad news
12 June 2015 | by A_Different_DrummerSee all my reviews

First, the important bits.

One of the coolest shows ever to hit the small screen in back, and methinks this is largely due to viewer demand.

So everyone involved give themselves a pat on the back, because you earned it, and it seems every now and then the execs do listen to the viewers, even though their first instinct seems to be otherwise.

As for the episode itself, it is comfy like an old shoe, nothing really new, but pretty much all the bits we liked from before are still there and that is saying a lot. I especially liked it when Locke (the boss of the squad but formerly an action guy) "reacts" as a guard points a gun at this head. That was probably the most fun in the whole episode, especially because it was so unexpected.

The bad news? Well, this "used" to be the showcase product for Cinemax. Then BANSHEE came to town. And that was that. The script and plot riffs in BANSHEE are on an entirely different order of magnitude. I had hoped the team behind Strike Back would have learnt from their younger sibling, but alas, no.

Secondly, they are still using the same story "trope" from Season 1, namely that no mission goes right first time out. (Think the original MISSION IMPOSSIBLE SERIES from the 60s, only in reverse).

Folks that gets old real fast. Even newbie fans (and this series deserves new fans) will figure that gimmick out in a few minutes. Find another way to get the stories moving!
