ok I know your excited but before you wet yer pants just one or two things to think about .....robert patrick , I'm sorry he's a fine actor but what was he last in on television .... the final series of the X files and if you look at the date its airing then you realise it's one of those shows they bring in to replace one of the networks prestige failures from the "Fall" schedule.... and is it me or is that one of the most shite promo posters you have ever seen , What were they thinking? " I know lets put a sexy woman in the picture in a James Bond Kinda Way ...what do ya mean thats not what the shows about? they'll never know..." hmmm I'm already worried.

No the unit was in development before the shows that failed were. David Mamet was writing it and he's not the fastet gun in the west for writing. It was always intended to begin around this time.
Yes there's a "sexy woman" in the picture, that's one of the operators wives- as I said the show is not just about the operators themselves but the families they have to leave behind while they go and save the world. So the picture has EVERYTHING to do with the show.

Is the next 2IGTV the fabled episode where Colonel finally gets tired of Mark's self congradulatory tones and punches the fucker in the face?? Ahh well, live in hope.

Naw it sounds like Mark has some serious blackmail material on the Colonel. Why wlse would he say "How high" when Mark asks him to jump? I've never seen him do that for anyone. Rumour has it he once put George Bush Snr. on hold!!

Lt. Colonel Creedon said...

It's the format of the show. And you'll forever be wondering about the 'hold' Mark has on me. He could telly you all but then he'd loose his power :)

My God, his hold on you - is it a Death-Grip on your 'tool'? Please, say it isn't, as the image is torturing me!

Lt. Colonel Creedon said...

Very well Captain; It isn't.
