I love the non stop action, although, at times a fight scene can go on too long (And whenever that happens I think back to the epic fight scene from THEY LIVE lol). Also some times the characters are really dumb and corny and so unrealistic that it can be annoying but all in all it is fun to watch. As I'm typing this I'm

If you like the high intensity drama/action/sex/crime shows, then this is definitely for you. It has all that on a consistent basis, and the plot is phenomenal- always a twist and each episode keeps you wanting more! What I love most is the steady flow of almost Comic - book like bad guys... it really makes for a gripping series. WATCH IT!

This is hands down the best series on pay TV. From the first episode to the last it consistently leaves you wanting more. This show has it all not the least of which is one of the best bad guys ever, who at first appearance reminds you of your local banker, that is until he takes his shirt off and you see him as one of the most perverted bad guys ever. The most impressive character though has to be the right hand man of the chief baddy 'Clay Burton' played by Matthew Rauch. Who would have thought that simply removing ones eye glasses would make you giddy with excitement and anticipation over whom he was going to go off on next. One can only hope that Cinemax keeps this great show on for a long, long time.
