SEAL Team: Season 1 – Opinion

SEAL Team premieres September 27th, 9:00 p.m. on CBS.

It’s almost pointless to write a review of a show like SEAL Team. Those looking for prestige programming already won’t be tuning in, but the show certainly appeals to a lot of people. Sometimes you just need a bit of mindless action.

In SEAL‘s defense it does aim to be more than a standard military procedural. (Much like NBC’s The Brave) The story not only focuses on soldiers in the battlefield, but also at home. Will viewers care about the heroes’ personal and family lives or do they just want to see them shoot guns?

The show’s other big draw is star David Boreanaz. Fresh off a long run on Bones, it’s surprising he is so eager to jump back into network TV. Those who miss seeing him on screen each week should add SEAL Team to their DVR. Like CSI, or really any CBS show, you can just jump into these adventures at any point. Don’t worry about missing an episode.

  1. I wanted to like this show until I saw the ubiquitous smart mouthed woman with the shallow Hollywood writer’s stereotypical role. Despite the fact that there are no women Navy Seals, the writers wrote one in and made her tougher and smarter than the men, which is typical Hollywood propaganda. Just once I’d like to watch a TV program or movie without the PC garbage that Hollywood seems compelled to include.

  2. Viewers need to realize this is a TV drama, not a training film. So actors don’t clear behind an open door, they sweep their teammates with their weapons, etc. still, it’s better than most.
    The other thing you must realize is that groups al-Qaeda watch our media for insights on our tactics, etc. (or TTP) so you should be seeing our real tactics. As for females working with teams, they exist. They may not have graduated from Basic Underwater Demolition SEAL (BUD/S) training but their there doing intel, logistics and other vital functions. Not everyone who works with a SEAL team is a dude.

  3. Sorry I have watched the episodes but so far I am not impressed by the series. It seems that it’s more about Jason’s personal problems then the action. I am a vet of 20 years in the Navy. I feel like they are insulting our brave men who are the real Navy Seals. My opinion.

  4. I’m not sure I understand these beards they’re all wearing. I would like to see them don and clear a gas mask with those beards…not possible…You die…
