Days Of Our Lives - Military Version
15 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Basically, I enjoyed this first season which I saw in its entirety over a six-day span, watching the DVD of the first season. Thus, I got to know all these characters pretty quickly! I got annoyed at a few of them but overall was pleased because almost every episode was entertaining, and, hey, that's the name of the game. I would have preferred they had stuck to the military action stories each week and skipped the soap operas, but I understand they want more than just a male audience. Also, lulls were needed to break up the intense action here and there.

All the characters, male and female, were interesting. Of the males, I had no problem with Dennis Haysbert ("Jonas Blane") in the lead role. His character dominated the action stories. His deep voice and authoritative manner made him a very believable person as the leader of these missions The other, younger guys are fine, too. Their spouses run the gamut from experienced military wives to very young newlywed-rookies. Two of the three major female characters, however, had serious flaws: "Tiffy" as an adulterer, and "Molly" as a frequent liar. Speaking of moral issues, what turned me off more than anything was the commander "Col. Tom Ryan" (Robert Patrick) of this elite unit being the one having the affair with"Tiffy!" Hey, I know everyone is human and subject to many daily sins but this seemed out of place and out of character with most everything else presented here.

Oh, well, for the most part, the characters in this military show are honorable, brave and, hopefully by the second season a little better people, morally-speaking. Kudos to the show's director and producer for making the action scenes very realistic. I am not surprised this show was successful and hope it has many years of entertaining us.
