History Channel's SIX
History Channel has been teasing their new military show centered on NAVSPECWAR: DEVGRU or SEAL Team Six for awhile now (January), but was during a recent Vikings episode we started to see the teaser of the show, and this has left me wondering about the future of SIX. Will we see something like Vikings, 24, or will it be more like CBS's The Unit or NBC's E-Ring? Mainstream American television has had issues with airing shows about the military. While there is M*A*S*H, it there are a number of other military-themed shows that have not lasted or not fulfilled on their promise. 24 was good for two seasons then dipped into bullshit territory for much of its run. CBS's The Unit was always half-baked, causing it not to be compelling or an accurate depiction of life in the ranks of the US Army' DELTA Force. But, its heart was the right place, and maybe SIX will pick up where The Unit left off. From the limited information, SIX will follow door-kickers from DEVGRU and their families as these sailors track down evildoers in A-Stan and back here in the USA during an 2014 mission that reveals hidden roots of terrorism in the US. There are some heavyweights behind the show as well in front of the camera, and the 8 part first season could be the right way to go with the episodes being more laser-focused on the core story rather than trying to fill an entire season with stories, as The Unit ran into. History Channel and SIX's production staff is promising a great deal with this show...FWS will be watching for it.
