I still don't understand why a big spoiler, Hector dying + the episode it happens, is being told in the general description

The first time I saw every episode of this, I loved it. The characters were great and they all got a decent amount of screentime, I thought. The reasonably large team was handled well.

I've seen it criticised as being wholly unrealistic, but that doesn't bother me. In the fiction world that was presented to us, everything fit as action tv needs to :)

I can't rewatch it though. I find myself skipping through the housewife bits to the action, and then I end up at the next episode.

majority of team scenes were very good, majority of "housewives" scenes were kind of boring (& sometimes outright terrible). Would still recommend though.

Even though every episode has sort of the same set-up I really like this series. It's got a great mix of action, drama and even some comedy one-liners from Haysbert.I feel the cast have established a group of very interesting characters and the directing was good throughout the whole series. I would definitely recommend this for all fans of action/military shows.
