Then the second season came out and the writers got a hard on for politicians everywhere... or they think that by the grace of God they'll win some sort of "no, it's art! we created so much more than feel-good adrenaline boosting TV using a television series that followed Jason Statham ... saving orphans and holding hands with Mother Theresa while renouncing the wicked ways of speeding automobiles" hunk of metal alloy made with the tears and blood of enslaved virgins and the dying breaths of kittens.

I feel this show has potential. I like how they plan to turn the movies into a show. I liked how they kept the same detective, the same house, the same locations, and the same driving style. I don't however much care for Frank, or his motives, in this show. I feel Jason Statham was a better Frank for a couple of reasons: 1: Jason had rigid mannerisms, making his voice, his rules, his overall style, and his motivations geared more towards professionalism. When he broke his rules, you could see that it bothered him and that his rules were meant for a reason. I just don't buy this show's Frank; it feels like he is more relaxed which makes him appear cocy and less tied to his rules. 2: I liked the fighting style in the movie better. Frank was known to take his environment and his clothing and use it against a large number of enemies. In this show, there was some of that, but I never felt that Frank was overcoming the odds...muchless being impressed with his fighting style. The Frank's fighting style, in the movies, was half the reason I liked the movies. I will admit that Jason's shoes is a big role to fill, but I feel how the role of Frank is handled will determine the success

1st episode of Season 2 ruins the show. Absolutely loved Season 1, great action and good acting...some stories are over the top James Bond style but still very entertaining and I DO recommend watching. However, I am once again very upset with the decisions made for Season 2 Episode 1. I bought the entire Season 2 up-front because of how much I loved Season 1; and now Im almost wishing I just stopped watching after Season 1 ended... I do recommend watching this show nonetheless.
