Exclusive 'Strike Back' clip shows Section 20 playing by its own rules
Cinemax drama stars Philip Winchester and Sullivan Stapleton
If you're a regular podcast listener, you've already heard what Sepinwall and I had to say about Cinemax's new transplanted drama "Strike Back," which premieres on Friday (August 12) night at 10 p.m.
The muscular action series features Philip Winchester and Sullivan Stapleton as a pair of operatives in Section 20, an uber-secretive British Military Intelligence unit.
Friday's premiere features Section 20 taking a very personal interest in a hostage situation at an Indian hotel, an attack involving the mysterious terrorist Latif.
In this exclusive clip, featuring guest star Jimi Mistry as a Pakistani intelligence officer, we discover that Section 20 doesn't always play by the book.
Time permitting, I'll have a full "Strike Back" review posted tomorrow pre-premiere, but for now, enjoy the clip...
