Stemming from an idea by Harvey Weinstein, the drama is inspired by real missions, capturing SEALs’ complex personal lives and the life-and-death decisions they make, with each season set in a different location, starting with Africa. The SIX TV show follows US Navy SEAL Team Six, the best of the best, whose 2014 mission to eliminate a Taliban leader in Afghanistan goes awry when they uncover a U.S. citizen working as a jihadist fighter with the terrorists.
I was hooked after the first episode of this amazing TV show. The acting is excellent, the actors going out of their way to train like their real-life counterparts. I feel drawn to their characters, they feel more real than some of the other similar characters on similar shows. Real SEALS do not talk about or brag about their accomplishments. And they are real people with real-life issues. What they do for a living can magnify these real-life issues.
Also, storylines including their family life and to see no one is perfect, they have their troubles like the rest of us. They all have different family issues that are probably quite representative of a lot of families in their position. And for those complaining about realism, keep in mind that this is a tv show, but this show has a great blend of TV and realism to keep you hooked and to satisfy those that are more discerning. Their stories are gripping and I can’t wait for the next season.
I suggest you watch the entire season One before you decide what you think of this show. It builds and the payoff is worth it. I was frankly shocked by the graphic nature – not of the battle scenes which ought to be graphic, but the raw language, emotion, sexual scenes, etc.
STARS: Barry Sloane, Kyle Schmid, Juan Pablo Raba
UPDATE: It was so disappointing to hear that this show has been canceled. I am praying that it gets picked up by another network or platform. So far, there is no clue will it ever be continued.
