Not a great reboot
1 November 2017 | by DukeNewcombeSee all my reviews

Let me start by saying I love this show... right up until Season 6. This season has really big shoes to fill, with the departure of the old Section 20 and the development of a new one you might think there was a slightly different tune to the story but not really. The friendship and banter that was shared between Stonebridge and Scott along with the a great series running story line, and brilliant action scenes (both in and out of the bedroom) really worked because it looked natural and real. This season is not off to a great start because they have tried to replicate that exact same team dynamic using different actors who just don't cut the mustard. The cast I am sure in many other roles would be great. Of the now four person bravo team we have a team leader that looks as natural with a rifle in her hands as a fish is out of water, a pair of US and UK Sgt's trying desperately hard to replicate a friendship from seasons 2-5 and it really shows, and an Australian Engineer who is the only one that shows a little promise.

Episode one for me, total let down. The scenes were terrible, the story line was too rushed, and the acting was looking forced. The entire show was spent trying to duplicate the formula that worked previously but with an entirely different cast, which is why it failed. I really hope for some improvement over the rest of the season because the strike back legacy is an important one as the rest of the "action" genre TV shows never came close to this saga.
