AWESOME SHOW! Check Your Player's Compatability
on September 11, 2012
This dvd set plays on us machines that are capable of playing 50hz speed. My Samsung does, my Sony does not. Just google 50hz compatibility and your model number.
The show is one of the best things I have seen in recent memory. LUSHLY filmed, it looks fantastic on bluray. The acting and stories are FIRST RATE! It comes with three stories of approximately 1 1/2 hours each and has many surprises, fantastic action, realistic violence and even nudity. I couldn't wait to see the next story after finishing each earlier story. The stories involve special forces missions to Iraq, Zimbabwe and finally Afghanistan. Seems to have been filmed with a very high budget and the stories are as entertaining as any feature film involving soldiers since Apocalypse Now. The series' hero, Richard Armitage is awesome. A renegade action hero like a cross between James Bond and GI Joe. Apparently Armitage had to drop out of season 2 which was picked up by Cinemax so that he could film the Hobbit movies (although I think he appears in a cameo). It's a shame because I loved this character but I have faith that the series creators got excellent replacement stars. Beg, borrow or steal a dvd player (try samsungs) that will play 50hz and get this title because the story line comes before the Cinemax series.
