Warrior, which just finished it's 1st season, is awesome and of course there's Strike Back.

There's enough content currently on Cinemax that I think it's worth it and not be in the mentality of getting this for only 1 show. Unless you're one of those who doesn't watch a lot of TV, then that's another story.

"How'd it go?"
"I said 'personally' twice in the same sentence. So, it sounded stupid."

OK cast, OK acting, pretty good writing...plus Gugino = above-average show. I'm IN.

(I'm getting a somewhat "John Wick" vibe from the colors or cinematography or something. Can't hurt.)

f you have Amazon Prime, you can add Cinemax as a channel to Prime video for $10/month (7 day free trial).

That was funny.

Good start. Nice Hill House mother and daughter reunion.

It sucks because Cinemax has two of my favorite series, Strike Back and Warrior. As for Jett I was kind of bored with it although if you've watched Frontier on Netflix you'll know that Greg Bryk does the creepy/menacing thing rather well.

Of course! I started watching Warrior since the Banshee folks were involved. I'm thinking this may finally be the push to get me to cut the cord. I've been paying for the top-tier package on Xfinity for years more out of inertia than anything else but lately they've started charging extra for the newer channels and now are dropping channels that I actually watch so I'll just get an HD antenna and then subscribe to the few premiums I actually enjoy and watch through my RokuTV and Xboxes.

The explanation about Comcast replacing Cinemax is lame. Also says you can add it to the lineup for $12/month. No thanks (haven't watched that channel in a long time). Might catch this show before the channel is removed, or else I'm sure it'll get a physical release and watch it then.

Kind of makes you wonder what the point of cable is, if you have to go to other sources to get the channels you want.

I liked this very much. Good action packed summer fare & definitely 'on brand' for Cinemax. Worth the $10/mo to add to my Amazon channels, for now.

seriously considering canceling my movie packages which I almost never watch anyway and adding Cinemax ala cart for this. If not for John Oliver I would let HBO go in a heartbeat too...

Agree with you there - it's a fun caper show, and Gugino is gorgeous. It's no Banshee, but it's good enough to stay with it.

Pretty brutal prison stuff in ep. 3.

I must be getting old but even the frequent scenes of a nekkid Carla Gugino aren't enough to distract me from wondering why this heist show is so lacking in heists.

Well then, ep 6 took a turn for the weird, disjointed, and stupid. Still enjoying the show, but they're making me work for it.

Thanks Comcast! Cinemax is now gone. Weird they did it in the middle of the month.
