Loving it!
As a fan of Leverage and Christian Kane I've been waiting for this to finally come on IMDB TV and I've not been disappointed. Let's be honest I don't watch shows like this for realism, I watch to be entertained and escape from reality! All the main characters are likeable and kick butt (Ernesto is awesome), the acting is good and it has humour without going over the top. Plus I really like seeing bad guys get what's coming to them, even if it's only make-believe. If you enjoy shows like Leverage, Macgyver or Magnum PI (the originals and the remakes/reboots) then this might be up your alley.

Awesome!
This is a great new family entertainment. It has good story lines, comedy, action and in my opinion its fresh and outstanding. Seeing Christian Kane in his own series is great it's a long time coming but well worth it in the end. Knowing he does his own stunts adds that certain magic to all his shows. There's nothing and no one I don't like, the characters knit well together, finding out their background stories along the way.
Thank you Dean, for bringing this to us and giving Christian the chance to shine even more.

Fantastic show
Great to see a native cast in their real setting providing great entertainment. I expected nothing less from a Phillipino director who has used his knowledge of the country and it’s people to great effect.
Christian Kane does a fantastic job with both the action and comedy parts of his role and there are some excellent running themes throughout. Add to that the special appearances from some well known faces along the way and we get an all action cop drama with heart and comedy. You couldn’t ask for more!

FANTASTIC!!
This has become one of my absolute favourite shows! Christian Kane, Art Acuña and Samantha Richelle are perfectly cast as Alex, Ernesto and Kai...characters you just can't help but fall in love with. This is a show you can rewatch over and over again and honestly love every minute just as much as the first time you saw it. Start watching now...you won't be disappointed👌

Great fun, and compelling characters - perfect escapism!
It's lovely to see a different view of the Philippines from most representations in shows - I guess having a Phillipino director helps! People and places with depth rather than just a pretty backdrop.

Really enjoying it so far - glad the show finally made it to the UK, after hearing US friends talk about it!

I didn't expect much from this but it's great, way over the top but in a very clever way, funny soo funny. The main character is quite bewildered most of the time and it makes for hilarious watching. Watch the first episode you get hooked straight off. Honest.

Feel good n beautifully acted
Along with Bosch this is my fav thing on Prime. Easy going, fun but great relationships between the cast and hugely likeable lead. Easy to watch and not the usual macho violent nonsense. Looking forward to Season 2. nice one :)
