My husband LOVES this series. Gratuitous sex, gunfire and explosions, Australians playing Englishmen and Americans playing Englishmen-- what’s not to love? I enjoy the convoluted plots and the wtf-just-happenedness.
Stonebridge’s wife had to go, I knew she was gone the minute it was revealed there was no baby. She was bringing him down; not wanting him to go on dangerous missions and keeping him from having soft-porn sex with forgein hotties. How long before Scott is humping the new squad leader? Why did the Somalian Lord kill the beautiful terrorist? She looked to be an interesting character. Probably for more of that wtf-ness. One thing I didn’t need to know-- how awful Tywin Lannister looks in HD (he plays one of the Big Bads this season).
Plus, to go along with convoluted plots, is the convoluted history of the series, taking it from a British production to a South African one.
