  1. Can’t see this doing too well. Apart from the fact it’s on SBS which few people watch (I do watch a lot of SBS incidentally), we seem to prefer our own heroes when it comes war themes and not American ones. Notorious for all- American square- jawed heroes and flag waving plus ridiculous amounts of ‘artistic license’ it’s no surprise.

  2. These action genre sows succeed or fail with the choice of athletic actors to play the leading roles, having a great upper body physique for taking shirts off helps as well.

  3. Secret Squïrrel

    This got mixed reviews but I thought that I’d give it a look if I got the chance. Lesli Linka Glatter directed the first couple of eps.
