Storyline

In a world where there are no obvious "bad guys", where governments engage in secret wars and illegal activities that threaten the security of every individual and nation on the planet, a group of highly trained covert military operatives have just joined forces to become SOLDIER OF FORTUNE, an elite crime fighting unit. Led by retired Col. Matt Shepherd, SOF goes where our government cannot and will not venture, to protect national and international interests and to maintain the balance of power. Even in the new world order, people are still up to the same old tricks. Written by Anonymous

A show with real Values
10 November 2002 | by (West Point, NY) – See all my reviews

As far as hollywood TV goes, I think this is probably the best military show ever made. The characters have realistic military values. Duty, Honor, Country, Loyalty and others. The same values that are imbedded into soldiers today.

If you want realism, the episodes are full of real life crises from s*** holes across the world. Harry Humphries does an excellent job providing military realism. A considerable base of knowledge was placed into the show (at least the first season), that it could be sold as believable to even those with some military experiance.

The failure of the show was undoubtable due to the times. In 1997 the United States involvement in the world was reactive, and the Military played no role but as a peacekeeper. The show also failed in not reaching the neccessary audiences through advertising and good time slots.

The show had a great impact on me. I connected with the values portrayed and started a career for myself in the United States Army.
