'Strike Back' Spin-Offs That Would Be A Good Idea
The series finale of Strike Back is just days away, so what better time to talk about spin-offs? While we may not see Scott and Stonebridge for a while (thanks to Blindspot and The Player), the Cinemax series has given us over the years tons of memorable characters played by a remarkable cast of supporting and guest actors.

So if we could do anything we wanted (and ignore the fact that a lot of these characters are dead), here are five concepts for Strike Back spin-offs that we think would be worth tuning into. In no particular order:

Faber and Mason: Faber (Dustin Clare) and Mason (Leo G...

'Blindspot' Recap: Have You Noticed The Developing Theme?

What We Learned From 'Blindspot': Stay In The Car
If you've seen all three episodes of Blindspot, you've probably noticed that a theme is developing. Agent Weller orders Jane Doe (Jaimie Alexander) to stay somewhere, usually in the car. Jane does not listen to Weller's orders. Things then become way more complicated.

In this week's installment, "Eight Slim Grins," Weller and the CIRG team head to a strip mall in Queens to locate two suspects in a jewelry store robbery. While Weller, Zapata and Reade search the stores, Jane is supposed to stay in the car and watch the parking lot.

Jane gets out of the car, insistent that they need another...

'Strike Back' Recap And Review: 'Episode 39' - Battle Over The B
The end of Strike Back is just one week away, meaning there's no time left for Stonebridge and Scott to keep the North Koreans from unleashing their devastating nuclear weapon on Korea. Can the heroes of Section 20 prevent a massive disaster and the start of a third world war? Well, it is what they're pretty good at.

The action opens with a massive armed response, because Li-Na's plan is already in motion. She's using the podium at the United Nations to give her big speech, having stormed in and killed every security officer between it and her. "Today we bring the true horror of nuclear ca...

What We Learned From 'The Player': Don't Jump Out Of A Perfectly
Airplanes are very useful for a lot of things. They can take you across the country or across the world in relatively short periods of time. They can be used to transport all kinds of goods. They can put out fires and drop humanitarian aid. Airplanes are meant to help you. So here's our lesson from this week's episode of The Player: Don't jump out of a perfectly good airplane.

In "Ante Up," Alex Kane (Philip Winchester) has to climb aboard a departing jet to stop former acquaintance Dominic McCall (Joseph Sikora) from getting away with a ton of priceless diamonds. He and McCall slug it out...

'Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D' Premiere Packed With Lots To Absorb

'Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D' Season 3 Premiere: A New Skye,
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D started its season 3 premiere right in the middle of an Inhuman discovering the burden of being one. Joey runs away as cops chase him down, ready to shoot. Luckily, Skye Daisy and Mack step in and transport him to S.H.I.E.L.D.

Once back at headquarters, Daisy attempts to convince Joey that being an Inhuman does not destroy your life, but makes it more interesting. Then, she informs him that he needs to leave his old life behind. Joey becomes aggressive upon learning this news, but Daisy knocks him out.

In between our introduction of Joey, and Mack and Daisy's new tea...

What We Learned From 'Blindspot': Bombs Are Bad (And So Are Hall
In this week's second episode of Blindspot, entitled "A Stray Howl," we also learned two lessons. As Jane and the FBI pursued a rogue former Air Force officer who was bent on using his drone expertise to get revenge on those who had wronged him, there were some hidden bits of advice about personal safety.

Number one: bombs are bad. Yes, this is stating the obvious, but in the world of Blindspot, apparently many things will blow up at a moment's notice. In last week's episode, a guy put a plastic explosive bomb on a subway train that Weller had to deal with, and would have blown up the Stat...

Is ABC’s ‘Quantico’ Worth Watching?

'Quantico' Review: Best New Show Of The Season
The series premiere of ABC’s heavily promoted FBI drama "Quantico" accomplishes the near-impossible—it hits harder than the hype prophesized, and it may very well be the best new show of the season.

Taking a narrative and style points from ABC’s sudsy predecessors, “How To Get Away With Murder” and “Revenge,” “Quantico” pulls double-duty by sweeping from a current storyline in which heroine Alex Parrish (Indian-born Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra) is framed for a September 11-esque terrorist attack to past arcs FBI training that casts her fellow Quantico recruits in a suspicious light....

'Strike Back' Recap And Review: 'Episode 38' - All About That Bo
With Li-Na and Kwon one step ahead of them following the bank heist in Vienna, Michael Stonebridge and Damien Scott need to get back in the game. This week's episode of Strike Back sees our Section 20 heroes picking up exactly where the last left off, but the results aren't grand. Then again, that just gives us more to look forward to as the end closes in.

Not the type of men to just stand there while the bad guys get away, Stonebridge and Scott use some hardware of their own to crack the bank's sealed doors. This gets them underground and soon chasing down their adversaries via motorcycle...

'The Player' Series Premiere: Is It Worth Watching?

What We Learned From 'The Player' Series Premiere: Gambling Will
NBC's The Player premiered on Thursday and wasted no time in teaching us our first lesson. In the very first moments of the pilot, we learned that gambling can be hazardous to your health. Just ask the guy who wound up dumped in the desert with Mr. Johnson (Wesley Snipes) acting like Mr. Lizard from Dinosaurs. All that was missing was Johnson saying, "We're going to need another Timmy."

The audience learns fairly early on in the pilot that the dead man was the last Player in a super-secret, super-expensive game where people bet on whether or not he (or she, let's be fair) can stop crimes. ...
