Review of "Six" on HISTORY 1/15/17
Premieres Sunday, January 15 at 8:00pm

This is a very good and intense show. It's very real and gritty, and it's not a patriotic fluff piece. You may not want to watch it if you don't like shows that are very realistic, especially about war.

The show is about Seal Team Six, the real group of army guys who do covert operations in war zones.  This particular fictional group of brothers have some problems in Afghanistan when one of them takes things too far.  He gets booted out and later shows up in Nigeria, working for a private company. He gets captured by terrorists, so his former teammates have to rescue him.

From what I can tell, the show is pretty realistic as far as how it protrays war, particularly the wars in the Middle East, and the Seal Team Six. It's not just about their job and their friendship, but how it affects their personal lives, with their families.  It's not exactly "Army Wives."

Walton Goggins (whom I loved in "Justified") plays Rip, the rogue team mate.  One of his friends is Bear, AKA Joe (played by another favorite of mine, Barry Sloane), and the other two main characters are Alex and Ricky (AKA "Buddha").  It's a really good and timely story. I think anyone who likes war stories should love it.  However, it's not a super-patriotic, over-the-top type of show.  As I keep saying, it's very realistic.  It has plenty of great action and story. The first episode just flew by.

Interview with stars Kyle Schmid and Edwin Hodge


HISTORY’s new military combat drama series “SIX,” makes its series debut on Wednesday, January 18 at 10PM ET/PT.  The eight episode first season of “SIX” follows members of Navy SEAL Team Six, modern American warriors, whose covert mission to eliminate a Taliban leader in Afghanistan goes awry when they uncover a U.S. citizen working with terrorists.  Inspired by real missions, the series authentically captures the inside world of America’s elite Special Operations unit – what these SEALs do, their personal lives, combat and the life-and-death decisions they make to protect and serve their country. 

“SIX” is an authentic portrayal of what it means to be a member of SEAL Team Six, a true brotherhood, the best at what they do.  The series begins with SEAL Team Six troop leader Richard ‘Rip’ Taggart (Walton Goggins/ “Vice Principals”; The Hateful Eight) making a questionable decision while on a mission in Afghanistan. Two years later, Rip is captured by Boko Haram and it’s up to his former SEAL Team Six brothers – led by Joe Graves (Barry Sloane/ “Revenge”), Alex Caulder (Kyle Schmid/ “Copper”) and Ricky “Buddha” Ortiz (Juan Pablo Raba/ “Narcos”) – to put their differences aside to locate and rescue their former troop leader. 

“SIX” also stars Edwin Hodge (“Chicago Fire”), Dominic Adams (“Devious Maids”), Brianne Davis (Jarhead), Nadine Velazquez (Flight), Jaylen Moore (“Homeland”), Donny Boaz (The Great Debaters) and Nondumiso Tembe (“True Blood”).

The first two episodes of “SIX” are directed by Academy Award®, Emmy® nominated and DGA Award winning Lesli Linka Glatter (“Homeland,” “Ray Donovan”).

“SIX” is created by Academy Award® nominee William Broyles (Cast Away; Apollo 13; Jarhead) and David Broyles, a military special operations veteran. William Broyles, Harvey and Bob Weinstein, David Glasser, Nicolas Chartier, Alfredo Barrios, Jr. (“Burn Notice”), George W. Perkins (Live from Baghdad), Bruce C. McKenna (“Band of Brothers,” “The Pacific”), David Broyles and Glatter are executive producers.  Karen Campbell (“Dexter”) serves as the supervising producer and joins Barrios, McKenna, and William and David Broyles as writers on the series. Retired U.S. Navy SEAL Mitchell Hall (Zero Dark Thirty; Lone Survivor) serves as the series’ technical advisor and associate producer. CNN’s national security analyst Peter Bergen serves as the series’ terrorism consultant. Jana Bennett and Arturo Interian are the executives in charge of production for HISTORY. A+E Networks holds worldwide distribution rights for “SIX.”

“SIX” is produced by A+E Studios in association with Weinstein Television.
