The Brave: Season 1 (2017 - 2018)

Season 1
The Brave

Critics Consensus

Formulaic to a fault, The Brave fails to bring anything new to the genre -- though high production values and a capable cast may be diverting enough for some.

Critic Reviews for The Brave Season 1

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (12)

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.

Sep 20, 2017 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Director Brad Anderson does his best to elevate above something you've seen before and kinda gets there.

Oct 25, 2017 | Full Review…

Nothing about the first episode makes us think The Brave is any different than most case-of-the-week fare built for mass appeal.

Sep 26, 2017 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Capable enough time-killer, but nothing compelling.

Sep 25, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The series follows the template for action shows but makes the most of it through crisp pacing and realistic action sequences.

May 29, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Its thrills are generic, but at least it stays focused on the mission.

May 29, 2018 | Rating: C | Full Review…

As openers go, the execution of this feels like a workaday procedural drama more than a counter-terrorism thriller.

Sep 19, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

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.

Sep 18, 2017 | Full Review…

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

Jun 20, 2017 | Full Review…

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.

Oct 21, 2017 | Full Review…

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.

Sep 26, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

... the stories are well told, and the cast, which is both diverse and well-rounded, makes them feel more believable.

    Excellent 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, 2019
    The opening was good with with a powerful ending .leaving me to want more
  • Nov 09, 2018
    This 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?
