    So this tv spin off series from the Jason Statham movies is now "out there".

    Anyone seen it yet and got any opinions?

    Saw this up for download today but need opinions before jumping in? I read that it cost 4 million dollars an episode which seems pretty hefty.

    You saw this today but need validation before 'jumping in'? What are you on about?

    Edit: Ah, that makes more sense.

    No, just Chris Vance doing a passable Statham impression. Otherwise it's an extremely mediocre action series with nice engine sounds, partially suspicious car stunts and by-the-numbers writing; that's my impression after 3 episodes so far. Mildly entertaining if you keep it in the background while reading or browsing the web. Still above the other usual German car-crash TV Alarm for Cobra 11 (or whatever that dross is called in English).

    edit: I find it hard to believe an episode costs 4M$. Unless they trash a lot of these Audi A6s.

    Isn't some of the cost down to location shooting?

    I wanted to like this as the films are fun but I turned it off after 20 minutes of episode 1. As throwaway action series go Burn Notice is still the daddy.

    Might just stick with Spartacus for my action needs.
