Fast paced sexy and entertaining.
29 May 2010 | by See all my reviews

OK so it's pretty much unbelievable, probably isn't half as good as the books (I wouldn't know I haven't read any of them), but if you want fast paced action with hot sexy actors then this is the one for you.

You shouldn't look too deeply, shouldn't really question much of what is going on and you really do need to suspend disbelief. But if you want something that entertains, provides lots of action, has a deep enough for what it is plot line then this is for you. It reminded me very much of Ultimate Force in the first couple of series. Richard Armitage is just too hot to handle and is credible as the tough, damaged (ex) SAS officer who just seems to keep coming back for more - plus he takes his shirt off a lot which for the shallow amongst us is a definite bonus. Great supporting cast including the fabulous Andrew Lincoln, gorgeous Shelley Conn(although I think she could have had more to do) and Jodhi May who's character is strong and definitely "kick ass".

I hope this manages to get a second series - not much on TV at the moment that both my husband and I can watch together but this certainly ticked that box.
