Cinemax premiered a new action adventure series “Strike Back” yesterday (a first for the network), focusing on an elite counter-terrorism team starring Sullivan Stapleton & Philip Winchester. I saw some previews for the series, which was marketed for its fight scenes, gore, and sex that the viewers of Cinemax love.
Now while I enjoy a good fight scene and the occasional gore, the “sex” part I thought would be a parade of boobies onscreen while the camera couldn’t pan away fast enough of the men. Boy was I wrong about that. Both Sullivan Stapleton & Philip Winchester had some serious skin shots in the first two eps, so I was glad to say that Cinemax didn’t forget about the rest of us when trying to get straight male viewers interested in the show.
I definitely recommend checking out “Strike Back”, if only to check out the naked fight sequence with Sullivan Stapleton. They have a new Max Go Web site like they do for HBO where you can watch it OnDemand. Let me know what you guys think!
