    I love the show. I just wish Max also would have showed the first 6 episode from the first season instead getting people confused calling the second season the first season.

  2. Mary says

    Can hardly wait for each new episode and the repeats – just to see Michael and Scott. How I wish for: “Mary – commin to ya”. The show is nonstop action, adventure, and terrific acting. Just love their comments to each other (bet some is not scripted). If it were on cable and not payview, it would be soaring. Please keep “commin to us” guys.

    Hell Yes renewed!, I hope this show goes on for a few more seasons. It is my favorite TV show at the moment, Just like Spartacus Vengeance was last winter.

  4. Sandy says

    I absolutely love Strike Back! It is the best show on television! Please help to continue the series. I watch it over and over!

    StrikeBack: Vengence really. There is already a Spartacus Vengence and that show is way better than this one. Cinemax should of called it StrikeBack: Last Chance.
