An unlikely alliance between two crack special agents fuels the breakneck action and heart-pounding suspense of Season 1 of 'Strike Back'--the first-ever scripted prime-time drama series from Cinemax. As members of a top-secret anti-terrorist organization known as Section 20, British sergeant Michael Stonebridge and disgraced Delta Forces operative Damian Scott undertake a series of adventures while criss-crossing the globe on the trail of an international terrorist who is planning the ultimate attack with a cache of WMD's. Philip Winchester and Sullivan Stapleton star.
|1||HDClosed CaptioningVideoEpisode 1||(Series Premiere) British Section 20 agents Michael Stonebridge and Kate Marshall are instructed by their boss, Colonel Eleanor Grant, to head to New Delhi, where a terrorist leader named Latif is rumored to be planning a major attack. Before joining Grant and Kate in India, Stonebridge detours to Malaysia, to recruit Damien Scott, a former Delta Force operative who was dishonorably discharged on the eve of the Iraq invasion. Agreeing to help hunt down Latif (for a fee), Scott decodes a secret message on a videotape, then joins Stonebridge in New Delhi, where the two check in to the Royal Lotus Hotel--just as a group of 16 terrorists are setting up a siege. The group's aim: to kidnap a mysterious hotel guest. As Grant and a Pakistani counterpart, Major Ashkani, set up surveillance, Scott and Stonebridge manage to slip through the grasp of the terrorists, imbedding themselves in the hotel with hopes of ending the siege, finding Mahmood, and bringing the elusive Latif to justice.||45:40||$2.99||View in iTunes|

Terrified hostages continue to huddle in the booby-trapped lobby while Scott and Stonebridge play cat-and-mouse with the terrorists, trying to keep a coveted guest, Iman Zubedah, from falling into the hands of Latif. As Stonebridge tends to Scott's wound in a suite, the American reveals that he was framed for drug possession as a Delta Force member--no doubt because he had learned about a covert shipment of WMDs that were lifted from Iraq. As dawn approaches outside the hotel, Grant and Ashkani brace for a denouement that could liberate the hostages and Mahmood - or turn the Royal Lotus into a flaming pile of rubble and corpses.||44:37||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|3||HDClosed CaptioningVideoEpisode 3||Section 20's search for Latif takes the team to South Africa, where Stonebridge, Scott and Marshall stake out a trio of suspects on a "capture, not kill" order from Grant. The job leads them to a ruthless ex-IRA leader-turned-mercenary named Daniel Connolly, whose heist of an armored truck in Cape Town turns out to be about more than just money. While Marshall is sent to caution a wealthy weapons-system designer named Kenneth Bratton about a possible security breach, Scott ends up trading places with a computer hacker hired by Connolly--a ruse that is fraught with danger for the American.||45:20||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|4||HDClosed CaptioningVideoEpisode 4||Surviving Connolly's brutal tests of allegiance, Scott continues to play the role of renegade computer hacker, even getting physical with the Irish mercenary's sexy subordinate, Neve. As Grant reminds her team of Connolly's history of murder and deceit, Section 20's plan to bring in a penitent Bratton is undermined by an unlikely player, putting Kate's life in jeopardy. At a remote facility outside Cape Town, Connolly closes in on his WMD prize, while Stonebridge and Scott are faced with dilemmas that could have far-reaching implications on their organization--and on the thread that connects them to the elusive Latif.||44:09||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|5||HDClosed CaptioningVideoEpisode 5||In order to force the delivery of a cache of weapons to war-torn Darfur, Janjaweed terrorists abduct Clare Somersby, a refugee-clinic doctor whose father is Latif's chief armorer, British arms dealer Gerald Crawford. The kidnapping gives Section 20 a lead on Latif, albeit through an alliance with Crawford, whose weapons were likely used in the assaults in New Delhi and Cape Town. Though Stonebridge holds Crawford personally responsible for past carnage, he and Scott are forced to pose as Crawford's aides in Sudan during negotiations spearheaded by Matak, a corrupt government minister. With an inquisitive American journalist (and occasional Scott paramour) named Maggie and her local guide Jacoub in tow, the Section 20/Crawford entourage arrange a rendezvous to secure Clare's release in exchange for cash. However, it's soon apparent that the Janjaweed leader, Tahir, wants more than money before he'll part ways with his hostage.||45:11||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|6||HDClosed CaptioningVideoEpisode 6||With Scott forced to the sidelines in a Sudan hospital, Stonebridge heads out with Crawford and Jacoub on the trail of Clare, who's been dragged by Tahir to a Janjaweed camp. The trio execute an improbable rescue of Clare and Nijam (the son of a woman slaughtered in the original attack on the clinic), but the Janjaweed are in hot pursuit. Meanwhile, Grant threatens Maggie to keep her from breaking the story, while Scott finds that hospitals can be hazardous to your health. As events come to a head, Stonebridge presses Crawford to reveal the name of Latif's contact within MI6--but the arms dealer won't budge while his daughter's safety is in doubt.||44:37||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|7||HDClosed CaptioningVideoEpisode 7||A Section 20 mission in Vienna is diverted when the team learns that four European Union officials--including MI6 agent John Allen, who has firsthand knowledge of Latif and Project Dawn--have been kidnapped in Kosovo. Behind the abduction is a Kosovo heroin overlord, Fatmir Hasani, who seeks the release of his cousin Agim Rama, an imprisoned terrorist involved in multiple international attacks. Under the auspices of Kosovo peacekeeping forces (KFOR) led by U.S. Major Donoghue, Scott and Stonebridge are airlifted with Rama into a Kosovo forest in an attempt to make an exchange. But an unforeseen firefight turns the site into chaos, and Scott and Stonebridge's efforts to escape with the hostages are derailed when they reach the KFOR recovery site--and find it abandoned. Charging sexy hostage Dana Van Rijn to look after her companions, Scott and Stonebridge trek to a Hasani heroin facility, where they hope to hijack a truck to transport the group to safety. But dozens of hostile guards, not to mention some unexpected intruders, pose formidable obstacles for the intrepid duo.||44:53||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|8||HDClosed CaptioningVideoEpisode 8||Burned by the duplicity of Major Donoghue, Scott and Stonebridge find themselves held captive with the four EU hostages in the wilderness of Kosovo. As Grant and her team in Vienna work feverishly to locate the group, the local drug overlord Hasani sets in motion his plan to eliminate everyone but Dana, who will fetch a good price as a sex slave, and Allen, the double agent who has been providing information to Latif. With an assist from an unexpected ally, Scott and Stonebridge extricate the group from captivity, but find even more perilous encounters on the road to freedom. As the body count inexorably rises, another twisted facet of Latif's dark empire surfaces: a human 'organ farm' whose next harvest may come from a Section 20 agent.||44:56||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|9||HDClosed CaptioningVideoEpisode 9||As Section 20's hunt for Latif moves from Kosovo to Chechnya, Stonebridge faces the domestic consequences of staying with the team, while Scott chafes upon learning Grant set him up to test his allegiance. Having finally decrypted John Allen's PDA documents, Grant sends Scott and Stonebridge to an underground facility where Latif and his associates, Mullova and Usmanov, have been testing a toxic VX nerve agent on locals. The related discovery of a group of forged passports leads Grant to relocate the crib to Budapest, Hungary - where dignitaries attending the upcoming World Security Summit are in danger of becoming victims of a chemical catastrophe.||45:00||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|10||HDClosed CaptioningVideoEpisode 10||In Budapest, Section 20 tracks a pair of suicide bombers who could bring the city--and the World Security Summit--to its knees. The plot thickens when Akmal Ramiz, a Pakistani general-turned-presidential candidate, is abducted while en route to the summit, providing Latif with additional leverage against Grant and her team. After Scott makes a stomach-churning discovery while hunting his prey on the subway, Stonebridge rushes to the Palace courtyard in a desperate attempt to stop the second suspect before he can detonate a VX-laden bomb amidst a throng of summit attendees. When the Section 20 crib is exposed, Grant finds herself in a compromising position that forces her to reveal the truth about her past--and a covert Iraqi operation known as 'Trojan Horse.'||45:22||$2.99||View in iTunes|

Amazing action show BUT...
This isn't actually Strike Back, the first season but a sequel, called Strike Back Project Dawn.
If you get a chance, watch the REAL first Strike Back episodes too, they are very good.
Only downside of this show (typical for the latest UK spy/action shows, like for example Spooks): They bash Americans and the US whenever and wherever they can. Not sure why but apparently this is some sort of UK film making thing. *LOL*
Otherwise, this show will blow your mind, if you liked The Unit, this show is just right for you. Enjoy.
This show is awesoommmmmmeeeee :)
I love this show I just can't wait for the next season….. Hey iTunes can u please upload the first series which had Richard Armitage and Andrew Lincoln…. thanks….
Love This Show
Anyone who enjoyed Strike Back: Project Dawn (season 2), and is enjoying season 3 should watch the first 6 episodes of this show called "Chris Ryan's Strike Back" starring Richard Armitage and Andrew Lincoln. These guys are very good actors, and bring a little extra to the show. The 6 shows are full of action, and the story lines aren't half bad. iTunes should try to download the first 6 episodes of the show as viewers seem to be enjoying the show.
