When Scott, who was registered at the hotel as Mr. Langley, was in bed with the waitress and heard gun fire, he threw the waitress off of him to investigate and the waitress not knowing what was happening, protested and called his name Scott !! She found him by the receipt in the bar which would/should have had his room number and undercover name not Scott. See more »

Buddy Cop Series - Spy Style
19 August 2012 | by See all my reviews

The first Strike Back storyline was more complex, riveting. The main character, John Porter, was more complex, riveting.

Second verse not quite good as the first.

The Formula: Take a lone wolf exactly like John Porter (dishonorably discharged), but make him a womanizing, American, charming cowboy. He's caricature of what we think "shoot from the hip" former Marines should be. Pair American Cowboy with a serious, sensitive, highly trained, play by the rules Brit.

Give both a thin back-story and send them on the road to do what? Rescue Hostages.

The writers force the tag team into a hero position by writing hostages into 75% of the plot lines. Each rescue somehow yields more information or the next mission. Each rescue brings them a step closer to resolving the series story arc.

They *must* find The Token Bad Guy and stop him from obtaining Weapons of Mass Destruction.

Oh yeah, the last piece of the formula is the internal "high ranking" Mole that thwarts their mission/rescue each episode. They vaguely refer to the mole throughout. I could just re-watch The Series 1 finale between Porter and his boss/buddy (aka....the mole).

Otherwise, the production value is high, the actors aren't bad to look at and there's plenty of violence and bits of nudity here and there. Overall, it's entertaining. Just not different or creative or breaking any mold of any kind anywhere.

Quite formulaic.
