A very good Pilot...too bad it did not take...

Some people have put this show down, but I would love to have a copy of it.

The premise may have been overdone...but the story worked well and the action sequences were great. I especially recall the guys standing in what they thought was back to back, only to find they were sharing it with the main character.

Again...if anyone knows where to find this...let me know.
