Trivia

On his first day of shooting, 'Antony Starr' was injured during his first fight scene for the series. According to series co-creator 'Jonathan Tropper', he had to get 13 stitches in his lip and the producers digitally removed some of the swelling on his lip in other episodes. See more »

Goofs

The USMC Marines from Camp Genoa are seen in town in their digital (deployment) uniforms. Marines cannot wear those off base other than being in actual field training or combat. For the bar and town scenes, they would be in some combination of the Alpha or Bravo uniform, the dress green blouse and trousers with the Khaki shirt and tie. Or at more formal events, in their blues. See more »

Crazy Credits

During the first season, the opening credits show a safe being unlocked. The numbers shown are 42-15-68, and these numbers have meaning. 42 is the amount of deaths that occur during the first season, 15 is the number of years Hood spent in prison, and 68 is a reference to Revelations 6:8 which was spoken by Kai Proctor in episode 1.7, 'Behold a Pale Rider'.

IMDb needs a review, this show is excellent.

I apparently require ten lines...

The initial storyline of this show makes you wonder where it can possibly go, but as soon as you are a few episodes in the characters really flourish.

The web of lies that has ensnared all involved is truly entertaining.

Lots of good, aggressive sex.

Some really well choreographed violence, mixed with sex sometimes... Very well done.

The first season left me really, really wanting more.

Ukrainian gangsters, always a great dynamic.

This is a show I fear could get better and better but may fall victim to a lack of overall interest and get cancelled.

I recommend you watch the entire first season and then start telling people about it.

Is that enough?

Are you intrigued?

There, reviewed.
