Ando and I have been sharing a brief dialogue in another thread, so I thought I'd open up a proper thread for the show and not stray from the original intent of the other thread (the paranormal one).
ANYHOW... I caught this show mid last season (the "Baptiste" episode) and really enjoyed it (not just 'cos I think Mark Valley is really handsome or that Chi McBride cracks me up with his bitterness and sarcasm), but I think this is possibly one of the best pure action shows that's been made in years! The character of Guerrero fascinates me and Jackie Earle Haley's portrayal of him is simply top-notch. The writing is generally quite sharp and, while it doesn't really get emotionally deep, it does give you good characters, plots and some good humour. It also features some of the best stunt work I've seen on television (did anyone catch the episode with the assassin leaping down the levels of a car park?!!!).
Having enjoyed the last season, I was intrigued by the addition of the female characters and how they would fit into a largely male-oriented genre show. While I find Ames rather disposable, I like her. Ilsa Pucci? I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her! It took me a long time to realise that she's the same actress who portrayed Susie Coleman in series one of Torchwood. I hated Susie and thought the actress was completely unattractive, but quite talented. I find her to be so striking in the role of Ilsa and am quite attracted to her unconventional looks. They glammed her up nicely and really got her into the action of the show this season. She's almost the Maddie Hayes of the agency and I kinda like that aspect of her character.
Anyone else besides me and Ando into this show?
