'Strike Back' redux: Episode 1 photos & 'How to fight naked' video

"Strike Back" has its finale a week ago, but the new-to-Cinemax series was so successful, the network is showing the entire season over again at 9 p.m. Fridays beginning Oct. 28. The show from creator Dan Percival follows the exploits of a counter-terrorism unit known as Section 20. It's a heart-stopping action thriller in the vein of "24" in much more exotic locales. But Percival subtly reveals the attitudes of secret military operatives and how the tough choices they have to make affect them. He worked with former members of similar military units to get the story right. I can't recommend the show highly enough. The gallery includes shots from Episode 1 that haven't been released until now, plus a couple of fun video interviews. "How to fight naked" and "How to fight a Russian fighter." You can read my previous review and an interview I did with stars Philip Winchester and Amanda Mealing at the links below. You will also find weekly posts I did for each episode. But don't read the finale recap with Mealing and Winchester until after you've seen it. Spoilers people. Curt Wagner, RedEye's Show Patrol Review Winchester, Mealing interview (no spoilers)
