    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?

    Canada, eh
    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. :D
