close but no cigar
29 July 2010 | by edumacatedSee all my reviews

when i first started watching, i started enjoying. the dialog and interactions were more than i'm used to viewing from the us jj programming. i liked the characters, i liked the dialog. i liked the show.

that is until they hit a tactical situation. after that the show turned into amateurish drivel. i'm an old pro, and if this is the kind of respect a major Australian network pays to shows that hinge on gun play, then they should stick to soaps.

the tactics and weapons handling were a joke, when one swat officer tells another she knows her scoped weapon shoots low and to the right i about crapped my pants--that is why they have a range to zero weapons and adjustments to get it right. a swat sniper should be able to hit a one inch spot at one hundred yards, no matter the angle.

now i know i'm not alone. there must be, at least, some Australian, Afghani vets that are cringing at this show.

this is the 21st century, and there is a global audience. get a decent technical adviser and listen to him.

i was hoping to enjoy this show, but instead i ended up laughing at it.

Robert.
