    Who cares how far out the show can be. I love the action, story line, gunfight and of course the mandatory coupling of two bodies in each episode. I have a running bet with my significant other as to who is going to do who and WHERE.

    I’m ahead 14-7

    Is Strike Back going to be cancelled now that the series is being renewed on it’s original network? I thought I just read that that network made a deal and is extending it’s programming and making new episodes of Strike Back.
