This show is actually in season 4 already. Season 1 (Chris Ryan's Strike Back) takes place before the season 1 listed on Google Play. The season 1 on Google play picks up the series at the actual season 2 (Project Dawn). Season 3 (Vengeance) probably matches up with season 2 on Google play and the newest season (Shadow Warfare) is not on Google Play. Season five is coming soon: "On Monday, October 28th 2013, Cinemax and Sky commissioned a fifth and final series, to be broadcast sometime in Summer 2014. It will feature 10 episodes, with filming expected to take place in Europe and Asia."

They know and act out real special ops tactics. I was amazed in one of the seasons when they pulled off a great withdrawal under fire, a disengagement of a small unit from a hostile larger force. We do the same with the firepower of supporting units, extractions of operators under fire is done by using suppressing fire from small boats or helicopters with high rates of fire so as to pin the enemy down in one spot while we egress to our transport. I was impressed by the realistic dialogue between the two "reloading"; "coming to you" "grenade" etc. letting each know their location to prevent the other from accidently firing at them because of unannounced periphery motion since they are in danger of being flanked, and surrounded and split second decisions at that point is too slow and I believe you operate on training and reflex, muscle memory.

Are you telling me that the best Google can do is to get a season that is 3 years old. This is the final season of one of the most underrated TV series I've ever seen. This show is the epitome of Action /Adventure. It's too bad that a larger demographic network doesn't pick this up. I don't care what anyone says this is a GREAT series., I for one, will be extremely upset to see this go off the air. The dynamic between the two co-stars is pure magic. Great cinematography , excellent chemistry and great realistic action. It's going to be a sad day for me, and I suspect many others , when this show leaves TV. Very special show, in my opinion , whoever is marketing this must have their heads so far up their backsides that they can only see out of their belly button with one eye. No wonder Cinemax is one of those obscure "What station" is this. This shows deserves a station that reaches more than 15 to 20 people and I'd bet a paycheck that this would be a hit on a real network. Cinemax is headed for the toilet, oh wait, sorry they're already in the toilet, Now it's just a matter of who is going to flush it I(the station), or can they not figure that out either. BOOOOO!!!
