Finally! The first season of the fantastic vigilante show was released a good few years ago and fans have been waiting to see if any other seasons were going to materialise, for a while it seemed like they weren’t. But now I have discovered that season 2 will be released in September, the 26th to be precise. So, not too long to wait!
For those unfamiliar with the show, it followed the exploits of Robert McCall (the great Edward Woodward) a former employee of a government organisation only referred to as “agency”, who now helps the helpless as a way to make up for his checkered past…People can get in touch with him through a newspaper ad – “Got a problem? Odds against you? Call the Equalizer”.
I remember watching the series quite a bit as a kid and enjoying it a lot, but a few years ago I came across the opening title sequence on Youtube and it filled me so full of nostalgia that I bought the first season almost right away. It then became one of my favourite TV shows of all time, it’s a great mix of “classic” gritty 80’s New York, vigilante justice and a detective show. And Woodward is fantastic as the well mannered but extremely bad ass and dangerous English gentleman.
Roll on September!
