Informative Episode On The Navy SEALs
9 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My first look at this program left me impressed. Of course, the topic was almost guaranteed to be an interesting one: a look at the Navy SEALs, considered the most elite strike force team in the world.

The first five minutes of this program was packed with so many amazing facts, I wouldn't know where to start. Suffice to say, if one knew nothing about this group, one would be immediately extremely impressed. These guys have some well-earned reputation!

In this episode, we learn why these guys are so good, a history of the organization (and the horrible circumstance which led the formation of this unit) and the amazing weapons they use. A number of myths about some of those weapons, such as the "suppressor" or "silencer" for guns, is one example. By the way, the man who invented the noisiest gun - the machine- gun - had a son who invented the quietest, the "suppressor."

Watching this show, it appears that the Vietnam War helped the Navy SEALs evolve even further as it tested their new equipment and methods and made them even tougher and smarter.

There were some amazing sights in here, like the modern mini-subs and jumping out of airplanes from high altitudes......man, these guys do it all. This was a great program, very good start-to-finish.
