Transporter - The Series

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:
F bombs
Titties
Fast driving sequences
Shooting
Some callbacks to the movies
Inspector Tarconi
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?

Re: Transporter - The Series

This is definitely a series I want to check out, but here in Canada it's only aired on HBO, which is a premium channel I don't have. I'll have to wait till it turns up on something like Bravo or Showcase at some point.

I picked this up on a whim on Blu-ray when I was shopping in Austria back in December. It's a fun series and yeah, Skarsten looks amazing.
