And we are back after a long loving hiatus from this show. The Brit playing the American finally got healed and they finished shooting. Summary of the final season:

quote:

Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) and Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester), along with the rest of Section 20, are enlisted to crack a missing-persons case in Bangkok. This elite undercover unit of British intelligence quickly realizes that what seems on the surface to be a simple kidnapping is actually the first step in a massive terrorist plot with global implications. Scott, Stonebridge and the team crisscross Asia and Europe, battling Japanese Yakuza, Russian Mafia, cyberterrorists, elite mercenaries and other deadly forces. Series regulars Robson Green, Michelle Lukes and Milauna Jackson also return for the season; new cast members include Michelle Yeoh, Will Yun Lee, Dustin Clare, Max Beesley and Michael McElhatton.

Season Premieres on Friday, July 31st at 9PM Central Apparently it's out in Engolond

This makes me very happy. I'd like to see this turn into a movie franchise with the same actors afterwards. It's just a fun show and would make for a great run-of-the-mill action franchise a la Bourne or Mission Impossible.

THANOS DIES IN THE FIRST FIVE MINUTES OF AVENGERS ENDGAME. THE HEROES SPEND THE REST OF THE FILM TIME TRAVELING TO PRIOR FILMS TO PREVENT THANOS FROM ACQUIRING THE GEMS. TONY STARK AND STEVE ROGERS DIE.

This is my ultimate guilty pleasure show. I know the plots are bad, the acting is bad, and it's pretty much just guns and tits. I don't loving care it's so much fun to watch.

I am by no means sure, but according to the little tv calendar website I use to keep track of the shows I watch, this starts again this week.

Yes it starts tomorrow in England.

I'm so happy this show is back. It sits alongside Banshee and Spartacus in just pure fistpumping awesomeness. Scott & Stonebridge are a brilliant duo. The show has a pretty impressive list of recognisable faces in cameos too. Just great fun overall, nonstop action and wisecracks. Real macho poo poo

Excellent.

I do feel this thread deserves a better OP than it has right now. Something with loads of gifs of explosions and beautiful women in various states of undress.

Let's face it, those are the reasons we watch the show. And to hear Scott call Stonebridge 'buddy' all the time.

Yeah, I've been busy with work and only able to phone post lately. I'll get around to updating it with all the gifs I can find of Sinclair before tonight. Also wtf! Why does UK get it 2 months before US?!

And that corrupt Thai cop is the Vengeance Angel from Only God Forgives. The cast this year is just 'here is a pile of money, get me the 10 most badass people that buys'.

edit: that was a lot of headbutts for UK television, did they finally decide censoring that is dumb as hell ?

The lack of worldwide simultaneous release remains baffling, but I guess it gets me Strike Back a month or so early.

And apparently the next three episodes are already On Demand... if you have Sky and live in the UK.

The first episode involves Scott cruising on a jetski and ramming into a small wooden canoe, which then immediately explodes. Yep, that's our Strike Back alright

I've watched the first four episodes on Sky Go.

If you want a spoiler that will crush your very soul read the following.. **WARNING. SPOILER.** Richmond is killed and the fourth episode ends with Scott cradling her limp dead body and not saying buddy to Mike.

I am pretty much afraid that we have to wait till five weeks after it starts airing on TV.. which is probably the start of July. I don't rightly know why we got the first four on demand only; either do a Netflix and release it all, or release it weekly.

In the voice of Damien, "gently caress YOUUUUUU."

The up side to that spoiler is Damien Scott is already a badass. Think what the gently caress he's going to do to get the bitch that killed the woman he loved. Crouching Tiger, Getting hosed.

Edit:

Episode 3 had a PHENOMONAL moment in it when *SPOILER* the supposed bad guy from the first few episodes who had kidnapped a girl and cut her finger off sacrifced himself in THE most badass way storming towards Thai SWATT with a shotgun blowing a few away before being taken down, and then when the Chief/whatever of the Police is taunting him about dying he pulls the pin on a grenade he had, grabs the cop and shouts "See you in the next life motherfu-BOOM."

Episode 2 was a big jump up from the premiere, I thought. While the premiere was largely concerned with the ticking clock and therefore didn't have time for much character work, this episode starts to lay out what the season will be exploring later.

And I cannot wait.

Also, I was getting serious Sleeping Dogs vibes from the first episode and felt kinda terrible since Thailand does not equal Hong Kong. And then I just saw that they cast Wil Yun Lee in a major role. So goddamn giddy.

Please tell me you're trolling, buddy

Seriously, what? They already pulled that poo poo twice, once for each of the boys, with Kerry and Rebecca. Scott just had that scene last season. Besides, Richmond is supposed to take command of Section 20. Right, guys?
