In Season 1, Episode 3, in the meeting room, the XO is pouring a coffee and beside the machine is a rack of boxes of teas from Tim Horton's. Tim Horton's is a Canadian coffee chain that was recently purchased by the parent company of Burger King. See more »


The torpedo is shown detonating and sending a huge water spray into the air as it destroys the reef. However, just a few seconds later, the bow of the ship is shown passing through the opening in perfectly clear water. The water should be very murky due to the sand, silt and reef material that the explosion would have displaced. See more »


Lt. Alisha Granderson: Sir, without radar, we're gonna be awfully close to that coral in order to hit the mark. We won't get a second chance.
CO CDR Tom Chandler: We'll just have to get it right the first time.

tasic from Thailand is absolutely right
28 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

This show has a great premise, strong, suspenseful story lines and some likable, layered characters. Admittedly, I'm a sucker for apocalyptic plague thrillers.

But after watching the first season, I have to say that almost every episode is sabotaged by one or two moments of complete unbelievability--either in the behavior of the characters or the workings of a naval warship (and I'm no authority on naval procedures, but I can rub two thoughts together).

In addition to the ridiculous moments tasic described (which I also noticed as I was watching the show) there was the moment where the crew of the Nathan James use about ten feet of Reynolds Wrap and a couple of light stands to replicate the radar signature of a ship that must be at least 200 feet long and four stories tall, and another where they try to convince us that a Soviet destroyer doesn't have the capability to detect when another ship floating within view has started or stopped its engines through hydrophones.

In another episode, a small team of commandos is able to infiltrate a Russian warship (who are expecting them to arrive) and sneak through half its length without encountering a single Russian sailor. It was pretty ludicrous.

It's a pity, because these moments just take you out of what could be a very good series and make you say, "Oh, come on. Do you really expect me to believe this?"
