Oiliva Munn with super-strength?  Sign me up for that.

Also, I've read the books that this show is based off of and I really liked them (the first book esp).  I'm going to have to re-read them now (Adding to my ever growing pile.)

The Rook: A novel
Stilletto: A Novel (the Rook Files) by Daniel O'Malley

I am a fan of the whole "wake up with no memory in a strange situation and try to figure it all out" device.  The first book is pretty much the lead character trying to figure things out without revealing that she has no memory (and thus get killed) or do the wrong thing (and get killed) while the plot rolls along and you find out about the world.

I've loved that sort of thing since Nine Princes in Amber.  (Him, been a long time since I read that too...)

I wonder if we'll get another book now?

Olivia Munn with super-strength. I've fantasized about that before.

I love the British spy genre and it's always good to see Munn as a superheroine - so sign me up!

Teaser trailer is out. @ 0:39 (makes me think of the old bionic woman show):

Oh yeah I did.  I look forward to many more feats.  She is a great pic IMO.  Sexy with an athletic build.  I hope they don't fck it up like the Bionic Woman remake.

I don't know.
Waking up with Hollywood Amnesia is a really old plot device.
Not a very impressive way to start a story for me.

The show is out as of Sunday and Olivia Munn is indeed super strong. However all she did so far is punch a metal thing.

Oliva nearly mythbusted herself with that move, if her power loadout doesn't include invulnerability.
