The E Ring might be worth a look.

It's on the FX channell tonight. It's about a special operations centre based in the Pentagon. One of the creators of the show is ex military having served in the Rangers, Special Forces and CIA.

FX Channel details here.

I've seen the 14 aired episodes of this and thought it was very good - be a shame if it's been cancelled, but still worth watching as pretty much all the episodes are self-contained anyway. The Unit starting on Bravo soon is also worth a look (think US version of Ultimate Force).

Yep very good, thoroughly enjoyed it. But as others have said, it has been canned. But if you like it, give The Unit a go, very much in a similar vein and has been renewed.

I quite enjoyed this, it did seem to lag a bit at the beginning but I suppose most of that was to do with introducing the characters. Dennis Hopper was good value as usual.

Just got around to watching this, and really enjoyed it. Shame it's been cancelled.

Have FX got the 14 episodes?

I am quite enjoying this now as this has been a regular 'must watch' TV show, Dennis Hopper is great as Eli and for me steals the show from Benjamin Bratt.

And what a way to end, really disappointed that there is not a second series as there is so much more mileage that could have got out of it. Plus I wanted to see that Natalie get her comeuppance.
