Trivia

The series filmed in Los Angeles, which doubled for Bulgaria, which in the film-within-a-film is doubling for the Mississippi River. The designers leaned heavily on Eastern Bloc architecture: blocky, harsh gray structures with the Cyrillic alphabet on the signage. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Jean-Claude Van Damme: My name is Jean-Clade Van Damme. I used to be super famous. Perhaps you remember my first starring role in Bloodsport. It is on television all of the time. Or maybe you've seen Timecop, which is like Looper starring Bruce Willis, but like a million times better.

This has to be the most hilarious comeback ever.

Unfortunately I don't write movie reviews very often, If i like a movie, I watch it till the end, if I don't - I stop it at the point where it gets really boring and move to something else. However, in this case, I was really disappointed when the pilot episode ended all of a sudden because I honestly want to see some more! This is the best JCVD so far ! I've watched all of his nineties movies at that time, but comparing with the latest block buster action movies available these days, they are just outdated. So if you still want to do what you do best, like JCVD, these days, you just have to have fun at the old stunts :) Simply brilliant, I couldn't stop laughing from start till finish, this could be the best comedy series we've seen in a long time. It's action packed, funny, silly- in a very good way, so you can just relax, feel good and have fun which is all you need sometimes after a crazy day of week. Please Amazon, go ahead with a full season !
