Wal­ton Gog­gins (Jus­ti­fied, The Shield) brings fi­nesse in this ac­tion-packed mil­i­tary drama that fea­tures strik­ingly life-like com­bat scenes. Af­ter former SEAL Team Six mem­ber Rip (Gog­gins) is cap­tured by Boko Haram, it is up to his former col­leagues, who are still haunted by their last mis­sion to­gether to Afghanistan two years ago, to save him. A cast of un­known actors play Gog­gins’ former team mem­bers, who each have their own do­mes­tic is­sues to deal with at home. While these side­line sto­ries have an air of soap opera about them, the show’s de­pic­tion of sol­diers’ daily lives de­liv­ers an air of au­then­tic­ity.
