STRIKE BACK Returns to Cinemax This Month

…And we never knew it existed. Or, for that matter, that Cinemax had, like, its own series. Where have we %#@!en been?

Here’s what Cinemax.Com has to say about the show:

A high-octane, globe-spanning thriller with storylines ripped from today’s headlines, Strike Back, Cinemax’s first scripted prime-time original drama series, focuses on two members of a top-secret intelligence agency known as Section 20: Michael Stonebridge, a British sergeant on the elite counter-terrorism team, and Damien Scott, a former U.S. Delta Force operative who was discharged on the eve of the U.S. invasion of Iraq. Stonebridge, Scott and the rest of Section 20 criss-cross the globe on the trail of a deadly international terrorist named Latif, who is planning a major attack involving a cache of WMD that could have global repercussions.

If this thing is written even half as overheatedly as the discription, whoa, viewers, are you gonna be sorry in for a treat.

Or, you know, not.

We’re going to take it upon ourselves to find out more about Cinemax’s slate of STRIKE BACK and the upcoming HUNTED. Maybe we’ll tell you about it. Maybe we’ll just be quietly disgusted. Maybe we’ll pat ourselves on the back in honor of our ignorance or good taste, whichever our snarkiness turns out to be demonstrating.

Maybe we’ll wise up and just pipe down.
