Quotes

Jonas Blane: The best training a man can have is what your husband has. Bob knows what he's doing. You just have to have faith in just how good he is. You follow? You have to believe as he has to believe. To know, that you're at home, handling things, living your life the best you can.

Good Escape Segments But Why The Needless Soap Story?
17 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

A hotel room in Valencia, Spain, is where the team is located, ready to assassinate some bad guy across the way.

Called down to the lobby, Jonas gets last-minute word from a high-ranked whomever (not someone from his team, but the country of Spain), he goes back to alert his team. He's seconds too late. The team just made the hit. Now they must get out of there in a hurry - a big hurry.

That's the main story, how they guys get out of the country. Most of it is focused on Bob, the guy who has the most trouble leaving. He is caught by police by crashes out of the police car and then has to use several mans and a number of people to get out safely. It's all very interesting.

The second story is a soapy bit about the Blanes's college daughter "Besty," who has come home, gives her mother attitude and we have to find out what's bothering her. That part, frankly, took up too much time. It is the cliché young girl-pouting-at mom story that has been used a thousand times in films Who cares, anyway? We watch this for the action stories, not this garbage.

More screen time of the guys trying to escape of Spain would have risen my rating of this show.
