We're only just getting this series in Australia now, and I couldn't find a thread on it.
The Transporter is played by Chris Vance, who had a role in Burn Notice as a shady guy who went out in an explosion. He's perhaps a little smarmy, but mostly pretty good. Plenty of the following:
Fast driving sequences
Some callbacks to the movies
Lots of shooting
Really fast car chases
Did I mention shooting?
And stunning women
Rachel Skarsten was in ep 3. Wow. Just WOW.
And in conclusion, any show that uses as its theme a cover of a Rush song ('Working Man') is all right in my book.
It's fun, fast, escapist. Usually what I like about a show.
Anyone else seen it?
