Strike Back

Now I know I’m late to the party and the rest of the world knows about this show, but I just caught an episode the other day and consider me hooked. Strike Back is a British TV show based on the novel of the same name. written by best-selling author and former soldier of the Special Air Service, Chris Ryan.


According to Wikipedia:
SYNOPSIS: “It follows the actions of John Porter (Richard Armitage), a former SAS Sergeant, and Hugh Collinson (Andrew Lincoln), a Section 20 officer in the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6). Both of them took part in a botched operation on the eve of the 2003 invasion of Iraq where two soldiers in their unit were killed. The series is divided on three main story lines that take place seven years later. The first two episodes focus on the kidnapping of Katie Dartmouth (Orla Brady), a British journalist, outside Basra, Iraq. Porter is redrafted to rescue her. The next two episodes take place in Zimbabwe, where the Government accuses the UK of orchestrating a plot to assassinate Robert Mugabe; Porter is to enter the same prison in which the apparent shooter is being held and aid in breaking him out. The last two episodes take place in Afghanistan and Pakistan, where a computer hacker is responsible for killing several American troops in Helmand Province. A loose arc also takes place during the series concerning who killed the soldiers.”


If you’re a fan of action, then definitely check the series out as it’s got violence, swearing and nudity. So, everything that’s great about the world then.
