Fuck me! This show is awesome! More action in one hour than most action movies from hollywood these days!

One of the best action series nowadays.

One word to describe this show...FUN

avatar

Would've been better if there was an engaging plot of some sort -- one of those shows that if you accidentally hit the DVR fast-forward, there's no real need to backtrack ;-)

Great show!

Hate to see this show end, as it is one of my favorites!

This is a fantastic series. A highly recommended watch. Armitage is great, but then Stapleton and Winchester step in as leads, and take the show to new heights. But (there is always a but isn't there?), I will warn you to stop after them. The new 2017 season is very weak and sub-par compared to previous ones. Even though as an Aussie I love seeing more Australians in the series, the acting is quite weak. Unfortunately, the money is not there any more either, and it shows on screen. Also the actors were not SAS trained (unlike Armitage, Stapleton and Winchester), and it shows in the way they handle weapons.

New Strike Back 31st October 2017!!! New Actors are coming.....

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me ๐Ÿ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. bingingโ€ฆ) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter ๐Ÿ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I donโ€™t feel like watching it all over againโ€ฆ

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
