Storyline

This action adventure series follows the exploits of Sergeant Henno Garvie and his colleagues who make up Red Troop, a crack SAS team. Stopping the release of a lethal anthrax mutation, infiltrating an anti-capitalist group set on assassination and a life-or-death bank siege are among the missions facing the troopers as they put their lives on the line at the sharp end of Britain's most elite fighting force. Henno's reputation is at stake when an operation goes wrong in the complex political jigsaw of Northern Ireland. There is a tragedy on a combat survival weekend and the team find their skills, stamina and close-knit bond pushed to the limit when they are sent to hunt out a suspected war criminal in Bosnia.

Ultimate farce!
30 May 2011 | by See all my reviews

Watching it is a little bit like eating a half cooked chicken, the cooked parts are succulent, full of flavour and originality and just as you are savouring it you take a mouthful of raw chicken and run to the bathroom ready to throw up. The best parts are for sure the lack of morality and ethics to the show, you get the feeling anything could happen. No A- team fire a million bullets and no one hurt here. Instead the violence is really well.. violent! The Good guys are just as ruthless if not more so than the bad guys and this gives a unique twist. It also has a healthy hint of the professionals, but Ross Kemp doesn't have a perm and this is where we hit the raw chicken. It's very hard to swallow a middle aged man who looks like he has a pillow stuff in his behind and a giant turtle in his front, as a ultra fit super solider. Some of the later series are almost laughable where they made a quarry in Chester look like the Tora Bora mountains just by making all the characters wear Arab head dresses. The one when they are in Africa is even more laughable where they use School Paint 5 to turn every scene into a flickering heat mirage.

But if you miss the professional and like the SAS there is enough here to keep you entertained, but the shows quality has more ups and downs than a seesaw in kids park.
