When you think of the British many of us think of prim and proper and tea with cucumber and cream cheese sandwiches. With the crust cut off, of course. Personally I think that the minds behind the television series Strike Back are trying to dispel that image in one fell swoop. There is so much violence and nudity in Strike Back that even the hardiest of watchers might bat a couple of eyes. If you are not turned off by gunfights and naked bodies then tune into this series about a counter terrorist task force that travels the world. It will have you on the edge of your seat as you watch it with its twist after surprise after twist.
