IGN: Six: Series Premiere Review

Recommended Posts

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode below.

History's SIX, a new action-drama centered on counter-terrorism unit SEAL Team Six, isn't here to glorify combat or gloss over the ugliness and messiness of black ops missions, but it's also not offering up anything new.

Premiering Wednesday, January 18th, SIX is, presumedly, what you'd expect. And that may serve you well if you're not looking for mold-breaking TV. You're going to get a tight knit crew of SEALs -- complete with their own doubts, infighting, and homefront troubles -- who are able to rein it all in, push it all aside, and put their lives in each others' hands when a mission comes around.

That's not to say there aren't interesting elements present here in the first episode. For one, the entire crux of this premiere involves one of the team's former members, Walton Goggins' haunted and seething Richard "Rip" Taggart, getting captured by Boko Haram soldiers in Africa. It's not clear how many of the show's initial eight episodes will focus on Rip's rescue, but that's the setup here.
