Strike Back

I'm on to the 5th episode of Strke Back, this amazing HBO Cinemax mini series, thriller about British Military Intelligence ultra secret Section 20.   It is based on novel of same name by SAS soldier Chris Ryan. They're chasing the weapons of mass destruction that were supposed to be planted in Iraq but got stolen.  Terrorists and guns and explosions. Even the ex Irish IRA.  One lead is a british solder. The other lead is american.  The leader is a woman.  The action moves all over the planet.  London. India. Africa. Some of the best background since 007.  I love it.  It's got the best of NCIS/Unit and bits of Mel Gibson/Bruce Willis happening here.  I'm hooked. Thriller. Thriller.   Action.  Action. Action. So believable too though what do I know about this world. It's just that it's got the Sean Connery feel that the original 007.  Men and women that really seem military.  It's even good British witty.  American action and British dialogue. I love it. I said that.  Now I'm going back to the show. Oh, yea , great naked sex, with beautiful bodies, artistic scenes,  that make it likely a Parisian or Italian is involved somewhere. Car, truck, jeep chases galore. Great acting. Great directing. Great drama.  Thank you!!
