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 »

Mamet saves the day.
21 July 2006 | by (Virginia Beach, United States) – See all my reviews

David Mamet, one of the best writers today, made a series that expresses his talent as one of the best writer/directors! This series has a story that can keep giving, time and time again.

Especially a show that really expresses a dramatic POV of a US solider. The fact that it shows a secret agency that really does this adds more charm and appeal to this show.

To me, you can't go wrong with anything that David Mamet has done! Anyone who says this show is poorly done hasn't seen it!

Denis Haysbert really adds a cool quality that fans will love. And for those you are Michael Mann fans find enjoyment in this little treasure, as well.

I love the way the story moves quickly from one action to the other, classic Mamet. 10 out of 10!
