Trivia

The T-shirt hanging in Alpha Team's ready room says "Welcome to the US Army" with the acronym "BOHICA" painted underneath. This is a subtle nod to SEAL Team SIX creator Richard Marcinko who coined the term. See more »

Desperate Housewives meets The Rat Patrol
9 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm a big fan of Dennis Haysbert so I bought the first season having never seen the show before. The first episode had a couple of scenes that almost killed all my enthusiasm for it, but I hung with it; got into the characters and enjoyed the whole season. It' takes some getting used to watching the episodes cut back and forth to the soldiers on their missions and their wives back home; that just isn't how "war movies" are done my sexist old brain says. But while the action scenes are really well done the "home stories" are surprisingly compelling too. As someone who grew up on 'Combat", 'The Rat Patrol', 'Twelve O'Clock High' I am surprised I liked this new show as much as I did. Well worth purchasing the first season.
