Patrick Swayze, Beast

Michael Muller /A & E

It's his way or the highway. Still.

Patrick Swayze, despite his recent health problems, comes on strong with The Beast, the actor's new A&E show about a shady undercover FBI agent schooling a callow recruit played by Travis Fimmel.

Swayze's character plays by his own rules, which are similar to the rules of other bad-ass TV lawmen: manhandling suspects, browbeating his dopey new partner, shooting off rocket launchers. You know, that kind of thing.

So was The Beast your kind of thing?
