wow!

I thought Scott had a revenge-mind this episode. Can't wait to see him (and the team) rescue Finn.

Good episode. Thought that lady was going to get blown up at the plant. Well.. we saw her pause and think. Maybe she jumped off the ledge? Ha

What a contrast to go from from a tropical location in Thailand to Hungary in late Fall starring as North Korea... Good episode.

Looking forward to seeing how our heroes will escape from "North Korea." That should be epic!

It looks like the lovely Tereza Srbova (Major Nina Pirogova) is coming back. That probably means the Russians will help get our heroes out of North Korea..

I was anticipating a new episode all night long. Just looked on the DVR and nothing

The Labor Day holiday is on Monday so I guess they skipped a show. Next episode is on Friday, September 11.

We were anticipating this so much, went down to watch and .....nothing...not recording ...began cussing my cable company dvr until I realized it was a repeat. I could see repeating on a Sunday before the holiday but not Friday, geez!

Thought it was kind of silly how they stopped at the hospital to take care of Finn's gun shot wound. Yeah, he was in need of urgent care, but they were on the run from the military.

That NK woman in charge is scary. She's so relaxed and calm..

Actually, I'm thinking that the showrunners decided to go out as cheaply as possible. Sec. 20 is now only 3. No tech backup and now the Colonel is part of the away team. I see one more sex scene with Scott...more ridiculous body drops in tight corridors and maybe all 3 of them eat the big enchilada while saving the world one last time.

I don't lurk as much as I used to and I NEVER listen. Comes from being old and cynical.

My Comcast feed was in HD, but for the last three episodes there was terrific macroblocking. Last week I bailed out at 15 minutes in and set a manual recording of the 12:00 AM repeat which was perfect.

You can catch Philip Winchester starring in this Fall's The Player on NBC, and Sullivan Stapleton is starring in Blindspot, also on NBC.

Yes! I noticed they both got some new rolls.

Thankfully. Great actors!

The whole sneak into North Korea, get captured, escape and defeat all of their forces is a bridge too far for me.
I have never taken this series very seriously though.

Utterly bizarre that you have an American playing an English soldier and an Australian playing an American soldier. It hurts my brain trying to come up with how this happened.

I've always tried to keep uppermost in mind that Strike Back is over the top comic book fun and doesn't really have a serious bone in its body. With that in mind, the show's excesses have never bothered me. I have loved it and will hate to see it go.

One excess that seems to have disappeared this season is the lack of hanky panky and naughty bits.

After the last episode I commented to the wife: The program is preposterous, but it is so much fun!

You did have some negative comments to say about the show last season

As I recall, most of my negative comments about Strike Back prefaced a remark about what a guilty pleasure the show is.

I have a feeling that Mei Foster will die before it's over. Hopefully an excruciating painful death.
