News & Interviews for The Brave: Season 1
The opening hour ends with an unexpected, big boom of a cliffhanger designed to bring viewers back for more. In that it's unique. Otherwise The Brave is broad-stroked and pro forma in highly volatile times both at home and abroad.
Director Brad Anderson does his best to elevate above something you've seen before and kinda gets there.
Nothing about the first episode makes us think The Brave is any different than most case-of-the-week fare built for mass appeal.
The series follows the template for action shows but makes the most of it through crisp pacing and realistic action sequences.
Its thrills are generic, but at least it stays focused on the mission.
As openers go, the execution of this feels like a workaday procedural drama more than a counter-terrorism thriller.
NBC has tried to get a political/military show going for quite some time, but The Brave might be its best offering of that lot, boasting a diverse cast and not relying on a high-concept hook to reel viewers in.
I must say, The Brave (fka For God and Country) is well-produced, the tactical operations are clever and the cast is impressively diverse in a way that makes their opening undercover maneuvers in Syria rather believable
Anne Heche is miscast as the DIA deputy director (the boss), and the members of the team seem, well, interchangeable might be the nicest way to put it.
There are so many other procedurals out there, why not have one about the military? We have the greatest military in the world, and we should celebrate them every chance we get.
Audience Reviews for The Brave: Season 1
Jan 27, 2020Not sure why this was cancelled...loved it.
Oct 14, 2019Excellent show! Interesting diverse characters. Interesting plots - not just goid guy bad guy. SO much better than SWAT. Name sucks. Should have been given another season at the very least.
Feb 14, 2019The opening was good with with a powerful ending .leaving me to want more
Nov 09, 2018This show and "Seal Team" came out at the same time, and I knew one of them was doomed to fail. I honestly thought The Brave would survive! It was better! The characters were likable, and the stories were detailed and well-told. I thought Anne Heche was at the top of her game, Mike Vogel was phenomenal, and Natacha Karam suddenly became my favorite actress. Why they cancelled this show, I'll never know. It was better than half the crap "critics" tout as "Extraordinary! Emotional! Outstanding!". I hope another network picks this up. FOX? Are you listening?
