I wondered if Phillip's comment to the Rezidentura might be an editing red herring, so to speak.  For example, in reality he was referring to a specific mission or something like that and not what...

Terrific episode and lots of surprises.  Probably the best written/acted series on the nets and right up there with some of the better cable shows.  (Recall when that trend used to be reversed?)

I think we agree but you seem to think I meant something else.  I like Strike Back the same way I like Bond and willingly check my brain at the door over the entertaining miracles.  Burn Notice did...

To me, the show has been a better written, acted and budgeted version of Burn Notice.  Many of the same miracles to save the day and implausible plot points like the airplane chase on the "US Air...

I thought it was pretty good and have finally gotten over the fact that every important case in NYPD luckily falls into the lap of the 3 Reagans (no family story otherwise, to be sure).  The downer...

For some reason, I continue to watch.  But, I find none of these people very interesting and don't really care much who wins from this group.  It's pretty obvious a few who have no chance at all and...

I like this show a lot and continue to enjoy it, despite the weekly save vs sinister backstory interchange.  My problem with this latest ep was that it was not very good just from a story angle. ...

I've long been a Patinkin fan, from his Broadway/singing days to his (somewhat bipolar) acting career that followed.  He was always a joy to hear singing and his acting is often intense and...

I must agree with the sentiment that the show appears to have lost a step so far this season, especially this latest episode with Mitchel in the ventilation shaft and Cam's cat funeral.  There are...

Dumb decisions like bringing back a known quitter/faker are part of what will finally bring this show down.  The constant return of "favorites" seems to be their way to change things - but is mostly...

I really liked this latest episode.  The pace was less languorous and the stories were woven together very well.  Even Eddie got an interesting side story with a portentous ending.  Hope it stays...

Great start.  The whole thing was well done and the assassination in Caracas was intriguing from motorcycle chase to the plan B estate shooting.  The flashlight/kid plot was superbly done and acted...

I enjoyed this 2nd episode at least as much as the pilot, maybe more.  Rather than think about the difficulty the writers face in continuing, I prefer to hope that they will provide reasonable plots...

Continues to be one of the best on network TV, just sorry (for the series) that CBS decided to air the premiere the same night as Breaking Bad's unmissable finale.  That might hurt the ratings and...

Great ending to a great series.  The only nits I would pick would be that the previous 2 eps were a bit better than the last, which had fewer "surprises".  The twists in the finale were mostly...

I really enjoy this show as a better made, acted and written version of Burn Notice.  Same miraculous escapes, etc but more believable for some reason.  They often try for logic and credibility and...

Just a late reminder that the Obama speech tonight will likely affect this live show.  If you DVR, you might want to pad the end time to be safe.
