At first glance Strike Back is a show about guys, guns and sex, it is on Cinemax after all, but if you give it a second look you will see it is also about the reluctant friendship between Scott and Stonebridge played by Sullivan Stapleton (Animal Kingdom) and Philip Winchester (Fringe) respectively. It is that friendship I look forward to watching every week, although Sullivan Stapleton’s bedroom antics are a close second. In the end though it is their camaraderie that lends a perfect balance to the action.
Of course the show wouldn’t be complete without a few fierce women as well. Rohna Mitra (Underworld: Rice of the Lycans) has joined this second season in a recurring guest role as a British government attaché with hidden motives.
She will join returning cast member Michelle Lukes (Alexander) who operates both in the mobile command center and in the field.
Focusing on timely world security issues, the Emmy®-nominated series continues to follow the stealth counterterrorism unit Section 20 and two of its core members.
Check out the video below for a sneak peak at season two and don’t forget to tune into watch Strike Back airing back to back episodes this Friday 10 ET/PT on Cinemax and continuing to air new episodes on following Fridays.
