First Episode Makes Me Want To See More
20 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We are introduced to this new TV show with a a couple of the Special Ops members in Afganistan, in disguise as locals. The divert the attention of some local army commander and then lock in on their target, a military supplies guy, give the OK and a jet sends a missile down on him and his building, blowing everyone to bits.

We are then introduced to the wives of these guys and the commanding officer of the group, -"Colonel Tom Ryan" (Robert Patrick) and then go to Idaho where one of the same guys "Jonas Blane" (Dennis Haybert) has a new recruit, "Bob Brown" (Scott Foley) with him and they are visiting a former member of the group. By coincidence (?!!) a mid-sized charter plane is hijacked in the northern part of the state by Middle Eastern people, so Jonas and Bob head on up, with reinforcements on the way.

In the meantime, the hijackers kill three National Guardsmen to tried to break into the plane from the rear and are executing a hostage every 20 minutes.

It looks like Jonas, Bob and the rest of the team have to stop this nonsense in a hurry.

This was a very good opening episode and gives me enthusiasm to continuing watch. I just hope they don't go too much into soap opera, stuff, such as I saw in the last 30 seconds of this episode.
