Ever get a little weary of Don Draper’s slow journey through purgatory, Carrie Mathison and Saul Berenson’s neurotic daddy-daughter dance, or The Newsroom‘s ponderous soliloquys? Then it’s time you tuned into Strike Back, the throwback action (ACTION!) thriller that revels in the fast-paced, map-jumping, get-the-bad-guy delights of shows like 24. Sullivan Stapleton and Philip Winchester star as two special-forces soldiers who see plenty of action while chasing dangerous terrorists across the globe. Last we saw them, they’d just snuffed out a nuclear attack in South Africa, and when they return tonight for the show’s third season on Cinemax, they’re finally enjoying some R&R and reconsidering whether they want to be part of the elite Section 20 team… for a few minutes anyway. The boys are jolted out of their vacation by a new crisis, and you can bet they’re going to get their hands dirty in a hurry.
In the exclusive video below, Scott (Stapleton) and Stonebridge (Winchester) find themselves in a classic Butch-and-Sundance situation, surrounded and outgunned. Fortunately, in their case, they can swim. Enjoy the scene below, and then watch a behind-the-scenes introduction to Strike Back‘s new season, which begins tonight on Cinemax at 10 pm. READ FULL STORY
