FWS TV Review: History Channel's SIX (2017)
The PLOT and Aim of SIX
It actually looks like parts of A-Stan. There is the in-mission scenes where the assault team is too small for an actually SEAL team and where is the equipment on their backs? Every SEAL Team member carries some sort of tool, like a collapsible ladder or bolt cutters, and they notably absent. There is weakness in some of the tactics in the actors’ performance, especially during a night HVT raid on an Afghan village. They need more training and better presence on scene. There is also a lack of support jobs. While every ST6 operator is a shooter, they also have medics, comms guys, snipers…and none were on-screen. These are errors that some will not see, but to me, SIX is a show that needs to get it right. Oh, and command staff doesn’t refer to DEVGRU as “SEAL Team Six”. The operators and command staff often refer to a generalized name, like the guys and gals of DELTA Force referring to it as “The Unit”.
