I finished watching Strike Back while recovering from food poisoning. Liked looking at the desert, did not like the exploding head wounds.
Armitage captive. Armitage on the loose, saving others.
Armitage’s struggle for redemption to clear his name and regain his honor.
His salute can have too much dancer flair.
Hello Armitage charm attack on fellow military operative! Those dancing eyes. “Strike back” indeed. Then full-fledged romance. Eh.
Armitage looks good in a Land Rover. Looks good in khaki, and definitely could sell lots of sunglasses in addition to Land Rovers. After seeing him in dark, formal, and confining clothes so often, it is nice to see in lighter colors and in casual, softer clothes.
Armitage delivering salty language that is not spoken in polite Milton society, the children’s version of Nottingham, MI-5 spyland, Marvel World, or Hobbit country. How strange.
I like the way he says “daughter.” It struck me when I first heard him say it in North and South in reference to Higgins’s daughter. It sounds so tender, and more so in SB where he is the father. I am curious to see more Armitage domesticity on film.
Not sure where season 2 is going, but Armitage is absent from the cable promos. Due to his Hobbit obligations, he must have a limited role, so I assume a phase-out is likely.
