Watched it earlier - it's nicely done and leaves enough open for season 2

Yep, satisfying. Neat touches to the original as well.

Plenty of satisfying action to wrap things up, just a shame the story kinda fizzled out over the last couple of episodes. But still plenty to enjoy & I'll be tuning into S2 whenever it arrives.

I liked how it stuck to its guns (no pun intended)... it had a clear story with a beginning, a middle and an end. The episodes were tight, well paced, never resorted to padding the story out, weren't afraid to kill off characters rather than hedging bets on a second series. Just get in, tell your story and get out. Really impressed and really enjoyed the series.

I guess that last scene about where the story could go next was maybe inserted after the second series was confirmed?

I think the books go on for years, certainly to the point that one of the most recent, possibly the latest, has his daughter all grown up so plenty of stories I guess yet

Season two begins on 18th July.

Hopefully there won't be any real-life US shooting incidents to delay it like last year!

Excellent. Will be watching this tonight.

Regarding the show, the star, Ryan Philippe, broke his leg badly at the weekend & they are currently filming ep.9 (of 10) so hopefully there won't be much of a delay....

Decent S2 opener, glad to see everyone returned & each have their own storylines.

Highlight obviously was seeing his wife in that lacy lingerie....

Also noticed that during the end credits, it mentioned that this series is based on book three, "Time to Hunt" of the Swagger series.

... Unfortunately I guess he was to be more active as they have suspended filming & S2 will now only consist of eight episodes.

No word yet if they will bolt on the last two to the beginning of a third (if it gets one) or just show them separately at a later date?


Anyways, second episode was fine, especially if you like Head-shots!
