Cinemax debuted its explosive new show "Strike Back" last Friday night, and in case you couldn't catch it, we'll give you a recap of the premise. Think of it as a new spin on "24"--only with more sex, violence and explosives.
The series follows Section 20, an elite military black ops unit within the British government that focuses on high-risk, top-priority targets--including an international group of terrorists. When one of their own is captured and held hostage by the terrorist group, the Section 20 enlists the help of Damien Scott ("Animal Kingdom‘s" Sullivan Stapleton), a charismatic former Delta Force operative who is familiar with the terrorists. However, his cocky style is often at odds with the more formal team, especially the by-the-book Sgt. Michael Stonebridge ("Crusoe's" Philip Winchester). Team leader Col. Eleanor Grant ("Holby City's" Amanda Mealing) is a smart, tough military leader who is skilled with a gun and diplomacy, but she also knows when to break a rule or two.
And if you did catch last week's premiere episode, chances are you saw people getting hurt and a lot of things blow up.
In this exclusive clip, you'll see pretty much the same. U.S. Delta Force operative Damien Scott goes against a group of fully-armed terrorists (unarmed!) and somehow manages to stop a bomb from going off--that is, until the other bombs start to explode.
The newest episode of "Strike Back" airs Friday, August 19 at 10 p.m. EST on Cinemax.
