99 Words About … ‘Strike Back’s’ tamer ‘Origins’

Ever wonder what “Strike Back” would look like without its almost comical blend of bullets, bombs and breasts?

Or why “Strike Back” wasted Richard Armitage (the “Hobbit” trilogy) on a tiny cameo in its premiere?

Both answers lie in “Strike Back: Origins” (10 p.m. Friday, Cinemax).

The original British series that aired before Cinemax got its exploitative hands on it, “Origins” stars Armitage, as a damaged special-forces soldier, and a decidedly British Andrew Lincoln (“The Walking Dead”).

The action drama is so much more straightforward, if someone walks in, it won’t feel like you got caught watching softcore porn.
